A nephrostomy tube is a small plastic tube which goes through your side into the kidney. It drains urine from the kidney. Because your kidney is not draining urine properly, your doctor has put in a nephrostomy tube. The reason for why you need this tube as well as what to expect after the tube is in place is covered.

Abstract
This is the first textbook devoted entirely to percutaneous renal surgery. The text explains the basic anatomy, instruments, track dilation and creation, kidney access and surgical treatment of all complex stone scenarios. The book is written in simple sections and is extensively illustrated with more than 250 illustrations. All diagrams have been drawn by the author and reproduced by a professional graphic artist. The book describes the basic techniques, then progresses clinically through to more difficult clinical and surgical scenarios. In this way, it is akin to a "cook book" in style, that is easily referenced and readable. As percutaneous renal surgery is a team effort, the book contains descriptors for ward and theatre technicians and nurses, as well as equipment lists. The book also contains a "do it yourself" six-stage percutaneous renal surgery workshop program. This workshop can be performed in any department practising PCNL. Percutaneous Renal Surgery: A Practical Clinical Handbook represents a practical manual, suitable for medical students, nurses and technicians and is a unique manual for all urology trainees and urologists treating renal stone disease worldwide.

PNL is the gold standard for the management of large and/or otherwise complex renal stones. Since its introduction in the seventies PNL has undergone considerable evolution, mainly driven by the improvement in access techniques, endoscopic instrument technology, lithotripsy devices and drainage management.

Abstract
PNL is the gold standard for the management of large and/or otherwise complex renal stones. Since its introduction in the seventies PNL has undergone considerable evolution, mainly driven by the improvement in access techniques, endoscopic instrument technology, lithotripsy devices and drainage management. The conventional prone position for PNL has been challenged in the last two decades by a variety of modifications, including the supine and Galdakao-modified supine Valdivia positions, which make simultaneous retrograde working access to the collecting system possible and have proven anesthesiological advantages. The Galdakao-modified supine Valdivia position allowed the development of ECIRS (Endoscopic Combined IntraRenal Surgery), a technique exploiting a combined antegrade and retrograde approach to the upper urinary tract, using both rigid and flexible endoscopes with the related accessories. The synergistic teamwork of ECIRS provides a safe and efficient, minimally-invasive procedure for the treatment of all kinds of urolithiasis.
