Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Stones located in pelvic kidneys can be successfully treated by extracorporeal lithotripsy, either alone or in combination with endourology and open surgery. A multimodal approach was used in 16 patients with pelvic kidney stone disease and a 87.5% stone-free rate was achieved. The proper positioning of the patient on the lithotripter apparatus and the correct integration of the different therapeutic procedures were the real clues for obtaining a remarkable success rate with a minimally invasive approach.
