1. Closing the tract of mini-percutaneous nephrolithotomy with gelatine matrix hemostatic sealant can replace nephrostomy tube placement.
Match Strength: 4.198
OBJECTIVES: To investigate the outcomes using gelatine matrix hemostatic sealant to close the tract after mini-percutaneous nephrolithotomy (mini-PCNL), resulting in a tubeless setting. METHODS: After complete stone removal after mini-PCNL, a double-J ureteral stent was placed in an antegrade manner. After withdrawing the 17F Amplatz sheet from the collecting system under direct vision without irrigation, the urothelium collapsed. While retracting the sheet further, the gelatine matrix hemostatic sealant was injected. The skin incision was closed with glue. An ultrasound examination was ... Read More »
