Abstract

Objective: To compare simultaneous bilateral percutaneous nephrolithotomy (SBPCNL) and unilateral PCNL in separate sessions in patients with bilateral renal stones for several variables before and after surgery. Patients and methods: The results from SBPCNL carried out at two centres in different countries on 198 patients (aged 1.25-70 years) were compared with those from 300 patients undergoing unilateral PCNL in separate sessions. At one centre where extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL) was available SBPCNL was used for stones where at least two sessions of ESWL would have been required on each side. Other associated procedures were also used wherever required. Results: The stones were cleared bilaterally in one session of SBPCNL in 190 patients; in eight, fragments of
