Abstract

Objectives To perform a multi-institutional study to characterize CT-detected complications after PNL. Computed tomography (CT) is commonly performed after percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL). One benefit of this imaging modality is the detection of procedure-related complications. Presently, the incidence of such complications is not well-defined. Patients and Methods PNL procedures performed at 5 stone referral centers between July 2007 and June 2008 were reviewed. All patients undergoing CT within 24 hours after surgery were selected for further analysis. All CT studies were reviewed by a staff radiologist. Results One-hundred ninety-seven patients satisfied the study inclusion criteria. A body mass index >30 was present in 27.5% of patients. Treated stone burden was staghorn in 70 (35.5%), >2 cm in 72 (36.5%), and
