Abstract: A total of 205 patients have undergone stone extraction surgery. Three groups were studied: in 70 patients the stones were removed by flank incision, in 20 patients by posterior incision and 80 patients were treated by percutaneous nephrolithotomy. Patients submitted to percutaneous nephrolithotomy had a shorter hospitalization, operative time and a significantly reduced period of recuperation, allowing earlier return to work and decreased disability. Narcotic drugs were demanded in a lower amount in the percutaneous nephrolithotomy group. © 1988 Akadémiai Kiadó.
