Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy, or PCNL, is a procedure for removing medium-sized or larger renal calculi from the patient's urinary tract by means of a nephroscope passed into the kidney through a track created in the patient's back. Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy surgery is a less invasive alternative to open surgery on the kidneys. The term "Percutaneous" means that the procedure is done through the skin. Nephrolithotomy is a term formed from two Greek words that mean "kidney" and "removing stones by cutting. The purpose of Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy is the removal of renal calculi in order to relieve pain, bleeding into or obstruction of the urinary tract, and/or urinary tract infections resulting from blockages. Kidney stones range in size from microscopic groups of crystals to objects as large as golf balls. Most calculi, however, pass through the urinary tract without causing problems. Renal calculi are formed when the urine becomes supersaturated with mineral compounds that can form stones. This super saturation may occur because the patient has low urinary output, is excreting too much salt, or has very acid urine. Urolithiasis is the medical term for the formation of kidney stones; the word is also sometimes used to refer to disease conditions associated with kidney stones. During a Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy, the surgeon inserts a needle through the patient's back directly into the kidney. A nephroscope uses an ultrasonic or laser probe to break up large kidney stones. Pieces of the stones are suctioned out with the scope, and a nephrostomy tube drains the kidney of urine
