Category: Clinical Stones: PCNL
Introduction & Objective : To report our experience with the Miniperc technique for treatment of renal stone in pediatric age group.
Methods : From August 2012 to January 2015, 34 patients <15 years with renal stones <3cm underwent Miniperc technique in our department. The procedure was done through 14 Fr sheath using 8/9.8 Fr semirigid ureteroscope (R-URS), holmium laser and pneumatic lithotriptor for stone fragmentation. Stone free rate (SFR), operative time, hospital stay and complication rate were evaluated.
A total of 34 Miniperc techniques were performed on children with mean age 8.8±3.7 years. Stone size varied from 18 to 30 mm (mean 23 mm). Mean operative time was 50min. The mean hospital stay was 1.5±1.7days. The overall SFR was 82.4% which increased after secondary procedures to 94%. Two postoperative complications recorded in the form of sepsis and bleeding not required blood transfusion.
Conclusions : Our initial experience concluded that Miniperc technique is a safe and effective treatment option for renal stones in pediatric population.
