Kidney stones are a common disease of the urinary system. In the past, all cases of large kidney stones were treated by open surgery (kidney stone operation) and by making a wide incision in the side or abdomen. In this method, patients complained of pain at the surgical incision site and complications such as hernia at the surgical site for several months. Fortunately, in the past few decades, with the development of methods such as stone breaking with sound waves for stones smaller than 2 cm and PCNL method for stones larger than 2 cm, most kidney stones can be treated easily and without wide side slits.
Today, PCNL is the golden treatment for large kidney stones and stones that do not respond to lithotripsy. In this method, I show how to do it step by step in the figure and according to the picture, you will get to know how to do it.
