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 .

Deger S et al. These records were assessed and analysed for this retrospective study. PNL was performed in 1, Patients were discharged after drain removal and residual calculi was seen in two patients needing ESWL. The advent of ndphrolithotomy stone removing procedures has further reduced the need to perform open surgery, even anatrophic nephrolithotomy [ 3 — 10 ]. The main goals for urinary stone treatment are to preserve renal function, reduce or avoid complications related to calculi, and to render the patient free of calculi as soon as possible.

Nevertheless, information about long term follow-up is scarce, as well as the the cumulative impact of multiple procedures. Scand J Urol Nephrol.

Serum urea nitrogen obtained to assess renal function and serum creatinine has improved or remained stable in all but 2 patients. Comorbidities were obesity BMI Care was taken to avoid the renal poles. Floseal was applied on the suture line Figure 5. Are anatrolhic really healing our patients?


Case Reports in Urology

Ramakrishnan et nephrolithotomg [ 19 ]. Standard operative technique described was followed in all patients. Case details of patients undergoing AN were retrieved from our institutional patient database. Surgical site infection was seen in 2 patients and urosepsis in 2 patients.

Two CKD patients were on maintenance anatropbic. AUA guideline on management of staghorn calculi: The anatrophic plane is defined by occluding the posterior segmental artery and administering methylene blue intravenously. A case series was nephrolihotomy reported by Simforoosh and associates in [ 21 ] with an update in [ 22 ].

Decreased renal function after percutaneous nephrolithotomy may occur because of parenchymal damage during needle puncture and tract dilation. The collecting system was opened and the stones were exposed. A calicoplasty was performed with a 6—0 Vicryl suture and parenchymal suture was completed with a 3—0 Vicryl suture.

National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. InKaouk et al[ 20 ] studied laparoscopic ANL for the management of staghorn renal stone in pigs[ 20 ].

Review on renal recovery after anatrophic nephrolithotomy: Are we really healing our patients?

Reconstructive renal surgery following anatrophic nephrolithotomy: An intraoperative blood transfusion was required. November 17, Article in press: Laparoscopic anatrophic nephrolithotomy for managing large staghorn calculi.


Posterior aspect of kidney was exposed after retroperitoneum nephrolitjotomy entered. Most of the studies shows that renal function is not greatly compromised after PNL Table 2. Advances in endourology have greatly reduced indications to open surgery in the treatment of staghorn kidney stones.

Normal renal function was assessed. In order to control those issues and to preserve the maximal number of functional nephrons they described the anatrophic nephrotomy and calyrhaphy.

Indication to Open Anatrophic Nephrolithotomy in the Twenty-First Century: A Case Report

A year-old female patient with a BMI of 36,2 was referred from General Medicine Department with a diagnosis of bilateral staghorn kidney stone, documented by an abdominal X-ray Figure 1. A 24ch drainage was left in the anatrophci space. In expert hands, anatrophic nephrolithotomy is an effective procedure, which spares renal function.
