The Pathway Balloon Expandable PCNL Sheath and the Balloon Expandable Ureteral Access Sheath are tools to perform procedures such as percutaneous nephrolithotomy in the removal of large kidney stones.
In the study, a total of 45 women and 38 men with a solitary kidney were treated with shock wave lithotripsy (53), percutaneous nephrolithotomy (18), or the two techniques combined (12).
Sometimes a procedure called percutaneous nephrolithotomy is recommended to remove a stone.
