The combined radiologic/urologic approach to percutaneous renal stone extraction has been practiced at Henry Ford Hospital since November of 1982. This article describes the current methodology and reviews our experience in performing 121 percutaneous nephrolithotomies (PCNL). We conclude that PCNL is a safe, reliable, and cost-effective alternative to open nephrolithotomy in most patients.
