Abstract

A 58-year-old gentleman presented with right side ureteric colic for six months duration. He had undergone an extended pyelolithotomy for a pelviureteric junction calculus 10 years back and he had defaulted follow up. His X-ray KUB revealed a large renal calculus with a calcified feeding tube, along with a large bladder calculus with encrustation of the tube in the bladder. Cystolitholapaxy was performed for the bladder calculus, and percutaneous nephrolithotomy was performed and the renal calculus along with the calcified feeding tube was removed. At the end of the procedure, the patient was left with only a single incision of 2cm length.
