BJU International, 05/17/2012
Guven S et al. – A considerable number of the paediatric patients had a previous history of stone intervention. Based on the findings of the present study, the authors can suggest that percutaneous nephrolithotomy can be applied safely and effectively in children in different age groups. Outcomes appear comparable with those in adults for the success and complication rates, in the presence of substantial indications, appropriate equipment and adequate experience.
