Minimal-invasive PCNL (Mini-Perc)

Standard percutaneous nephrolithotomy is an extremely effective procedure that helps to remove renal calculi. However, this procedure results in significant morbidity. A major disadvantage of this procedure is that it results in a huge increase in health care expenses.


Mini-percutaneous nephrolithotomy, performed using a 13F ureteroscopy sheath, tremendously reduces the morbidity associated with standard percutaneous nephrolithotomy and at the same time maintains the effectiveness of stone removal.
