Abstract

A casuistic concerning 30 cases of staghorn calculosis which underwent surgery (bivalve nephrolithotomy), is reviewed. Immediate and late complications are discussed as well as the effect on the renal function and the results obtained by the complete removal of the calculi, prophylaxis of recurrencies and urinary infection. Bivalve nephrolithotomy when the surgical procedure in staghorn calculosis is decided, is an operative technique very reliable as it allows the best intra-operative conditions for a complete removal of the calculi; it is free from more serious complications, but the ones met in the normal urological surgery concerning septic problems, and does not seem to cause serious loss of the renal function.
