Abstract: OBJECTIVE: To describe our technique and results. METHODS: A total of 117 patients (120 renal units) were evaluated in a prospective manner. One surgeon operated all the cases. All patients had a CT scan pre-operatively and the stones were classified according the Guy’s score. We performed complete supine PCNL (csPCNL) with no rolled towel under the flank and no change of position. The ipsilateral arm was hung over the thorax and the patients were draped only once. A 6Fr ureteral catheter was placed without lithotomy position. The puncture was done always by the surgeon in the selected calix under fluoroscopic vision. The tract was dilated with a double shot technique and a 30Fr Amplatz sheath was placed. A 16Fr nephrostomy tube was inserted in cases of bleeding or residual stones. A ureteral catheter or a double J was always left. A CT scan was done in the first POD in all cases. Success was defined as the presence of ≤ 4 mm fragments at the end of follow up. RESULTS: The operative time ranged between 20 and 240 minutes (mean 105.5±50.8 min). The immediate success rate was 72.5% and the final rate was 90.4% after an average of 1.08 PCNL and 0.17 auxiliary procedures. Patients were left tubeless in 38.3% of the cases. The complication rate was 15.8% (11.6% of Clavien 1 or 2 and 4.2% of Clavien 3 or 4). The transfusion rate was 4.2%. No colon injuries or deaths occurred. CONCLUSIONS: The csPCNL is a very safe and effective procedure.
