Introduction. Anatrophic nephrolithotomy is a procedure in which a parenchymal incision is made in an intersegmental plane, allowing removal of large renal. We offered the patient staged open anatrophic nephrolithotomy. Results. Operative time was minutes. Blood loss was cc. requiring one. The anatrophic nephrolithotomy described by Smith and Boyce is an excellent method of preserving a maximum number of functioning nephrons by minimizing .

Ekelund et al [ 25 ]. Retroperitoneal drain and DJS were placed in all 13 patients. Nouralizadeh et al [ 30 ]. Mean pre-operative serum creatinine level rised from 1. The aim of the procedure was to remove all calculi and fragments, improving urinary drainage, eradicating infections, and preserving renal function.

Comparative study of renal function between standard and modified anatrophic nephrolithotomy by radionuclide renal scans. A calicoplasty was performed with a 6—0 Vicryl suture and parenchymal suture was completed with a 3—0 Vicryl suture. Drain was removed at a mean SD of 9. Find articles by Girish Gurubasappa Nelivigi. Table 1 describes results of modified ANL in regard to renal function assed by scintigraphy.

A percutaneous treatment was impractical due to stones volume and complexity, obesity, and low compliance of patient for possible need of repeat treatments.


Renal function is preserved and with the emergence of laparoscopy and robotic assistance, postoperative stay is minimized with expedited recovery and nephrolithotimy results with gold standard open surgery.

Shen et al[ 47 ] also compared PNL and open surgery in a prospective randomized study. Open in a separate window. Improvement or stabilization of renal function may occur because of better drainage, infection and inflammation resolution after surgery.

The mean SD weight was Long-term renal function and stone recurrence after percutaneous nephrolithotomy in patients with renal insufficiency. She had undergone abatrophic cholecystectomy and appendectomy 25 years previously and reported a previous left ESWL 8 years earlier.

Even if anatrophic nephrolithotomy is currently performed laparoscopically, in patients affected by severe cardiac or pulmonary diseases or with amatrophic previous laparotomy, laparoscopic approach may not be indicated.

After 3 months, a renal ultrasound showed no hydronephrosis, no left kidney calculi, and the persistence of right kidney staghorn calculi with a sufficiently represented parenchyma. Renal function was assessed with serum and urinary b2-microglobulin and they found no difference between groups.
