Treatment of Urinary Stones in Patients with Spinal Deformities

Kidney stone patients with skeletal deformities typically present with a variety of procedural challenges. Because the anatomy of these patients is atypical, they frequently are associated with comorbidities such as hip ankylosis or a shifting kidney as common examples. This can make it challenging for the surgeon to position the patient in the lithotomy position and gain access to the kidney.
