Management of Transplant Nephrolithiasis

Dr. Palese and Dr. Small explain the specific risk factors, unique anatomical intricacies, and technical considerations for treatment for kidney stones in a transplanted kidney. The case of a 68-year-old male with end-stage renal disease who presents with renal calculi 11 months post kidney transplant is shared. Drs. Palese and Small explain the required and careful thought process to ensure the best possible outcome of this and similar transplant cases, all of which are deemed highly complex. Drs. Palese and Small also address how to treat donor-gifted lithiasis prior to implantation.
