Question:

Percutaneous transrenal approach can be employed for: (select the best answer)
1. Removal of ureteral stents.
2. Exchange of ureteral stents.
3. Retrieval of fractured nephrostomy tubes.
4. All of the above.
5. None of the above.





Answer:

The correct answer for the question "Percutaneous transrenal approach can be employed for: (select the best answer) " is:

4. All of the above.



Explanation
a- Removal of ureteral stents. [Percutaneous transrenal catheter retrieval procedure is a  well known and a relatively safe technique for retrieval, or exchange, of ureteral stents].


b- Exchange of ureteral stents. [Percutaneous transrenal catheter retrieval procedure is a well known and a relatively safe technique for retrieval, or exchange, of ureteral stents].

c- Retrieval of fractured nephrostomy tubes. [as described in our case].

d- All of the above. [correct].

e- None of the above. [incorrect].

Abstract
Percutaneous nephrostomy is a safe procedure, performed routinely by interventional radiologists, and has a low complication rate. We report an unusual case of a fractured nephrostomy tube, retained within the kidney, having its fractured end trapped within the healed retroperitoneal tract. The catheter was retrieved by snaring it, using a percutaneous access to the collecting system. We describe the technique used and the alternative management options.
