Supine Positioning for PCNL on a Patient with a Horseshoe Kidney

Dr. Vicentini describes a case of a 56-year-old male who was referred to him after experiencing right lumbar pain for three years. Two previous PCNL operations were unsuccessful due to challenging anatomy. A CT scan showed three large stones in a horseshoe kidney. Dr. Vicentini discusses his PCNL technique, device selection, approach to gaining access and patient positioning. Despite the challenging patient anatomy, the result was complete stone clearance.
