Course Vice Director:
One supine PCNL and 2 RIRSs for urolithiasis have been carried out uneventfully. In the last patients also a filling defect suspicious for UTUC was present but the endoscopic finding was coherent with hypertrofic papilla.
Picture 1: Axial CT scan of the 1st patient (right supine PCNL): a staghorn stone (HU 500) in the right kidney is showed in patient with bilateral staghorn calculi resistant to urine alkalinization. It has been decided to perform staged metachronous PCNL in consideration of the stones dimension.
Picture 2: Coronal CT scan of the 2nd patient (left RIRS): a 1.5 cm left renal stone (HU 1000 ) is showed in patient with DJ stent, who underwent two previous unsuccessful RIRSs in other hospitals.
Picture 3-4: Axial CT scan enhanced and unenhanced of the 3rd patient (bilateral RIRS): filling defect of left lower pole moiety and multiple stones in patient with left duplex collecting system and nephrocalcinosis are showed.
