ABSTRACTWe describe our experience in the first five years, on patients treated with nephrolithotripsy. We reviewed 85 patient records, only 52 had the complete requisite for the present revision since February 1994 until May 1999. Were treated 87 stones, 37 (42.5%) in the right kidney and 50 in the left (57.4%). The more frequent localization was in the lower calix, 27 stones (31.0%). The second place in the renal pelvis, 21 stones (24.13%), 9 full staghorn where treated and 9 incomplete staghorn. The size were 5 mm to 40 mm. Results: From 71 procedures, 36 were free stones. Eighteen needed another nephrolithotripsy and 16 need ESW. Were treated with ESW. One patient needed open surgery. We concluded that PCN provides good results with low risk task, lower hospital stay and morbidity.
