ABSTRACT

Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is a procedure done for kidney stones, and the presence of a residual stone post-operative is usually common. This study compares the different options of management of these stones in our hospital (Prince Hussein Bin Abdullah medical center, Jordan), it was carried between the year 2017 and 2019, it includes about 300 patients, and they are followed radiographically for about 3 months by CT scan. 45 Patients need further management post PCNL by extra corporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL), and 6 patients need another session of PCNL. In conclusion percutaneous nephrolithotomy is the gold standard for stones that are more than 2 cm in the kidney and management of residual fragments depends on many factors including the size and location of residual fragment and equipment available.
