A technique is described for effective closure of the transverse pyelotomy incision used to initiate the Gil-Vernet extended pyelolithotomy operation. Long preplaced sutures of 5-0 Vicryl are made on the intact pelvis across the proposed incision line. After stone removal, the preplaced sutures are tied to approximate the edges of the pyelotomy incision. This simple method helps reduce the chance of pelvic tear, which is a common occurrence when the conventional method of closure is used.
