Authors report their experiences and results with the laparoscopically assisted percutaneous transperitoneal nephrolithotomy (PCNL) in pelvic dystopic kidneys. in Trendelenburg-position under laparoscopic controll the bowels are dislodged with forceps. Under simultaneous laparoscopic and fluoroscopic control the kidney is punctured transperitoneally, the nephrostomy track is dilated and the stones are removed with the usual percutaneous technique. All the stones could be removed completely, severe complication has not occurred. On the basis of their experiences and the review of the literature in the cases of failed shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) or large, dense stones this method appears to be the most suitable minimally invasive treatment for the stoneholding pelvic dystopic kidney.
