Abstract: OBJECTIVE To define computed tomography (CT) predictors of residual fragments after retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) for kidney stones up to 20 mm in patients never submitted to surgical procedures for stone removal. METHODS From August 2016 to August 2017, symptomatic adult patients with kidney stones less than 20 mm treated by RIRS had their pre- and postoperative CT prospectively evaluated in search for predictors of residual stone fragments. Stone size, stone volume, number of stones, stone density, and location were evaluated in preoperative CT and analyzed as predictors for residual stone fragments on 90 POD CT. Stone location was represented by the infundibulopelvic angle (IPA) measured for each stone on preoperative noncontrast CI using multiplanar reconstruction. RESULTS Ninety-two patients were successfully submitted to RIRS. Bilateral procedures were performed in 23 patients (25%) resulting in 115 renal units operated. Operative time was 54.5 +/- 26.7 minutes (mean +/- SD) and 96.7% (89/92) of the patients were discharged up to 12 hours after the procedure. Postoperative CI demonstrated stone-free in 86 of 115 (74.8%), 0-2 mm in 10 of 115 (8.7%), and > 2 mm residual fragments in 19 of 115 (16.5%) procedures. Logistic regression analysis revealed steep IPA was a predictor for any residual stone fragment after RIRS for kidney stones < 20 mm (P= .012). ROC curve showed that IPA < 41 degrees was associated with a higher chance of residual fragments after RIRS. CONCLUSION IPA < 41 degrees is associated with a higher chance of residual fragments after RIRS for kidney stones up to 20 mm. (C) 2019 Elsevier Inc.
