Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is currently the standard of care to remove large renal calculi. Traditionally, a large-bore nephrostomy tube is placed postoperatively. However, the necessity of this practice has been recently challenged. Theoretically, bilateral tubeless PCNL offers advantages of lower postoperative discomfort, shorter hospital stay and thus lower cost. We ...

Intrapericardial teratomas are rare but potentially fatal. With prenatal ultrasound, early diagnosis and decision for treatment can be accomplished. However, the decision becomes to treat prenatally vs. waiting until the neonatal period for definitive surgical management. The most common sequelae of intrapericardial teratomas are pericardial effusion and often progression to ...
