The purpose of the study is to assess patients’ use of opioid and non-opioid pain medication following percutaneous nephrolithotomy, as well as to characterize disposal patterns for unused opioid medication after recovery.
A Study of the ability for CT imaging to accurately predict the fragility (quality of being easily broken) of kidney stones during surgical intervention.
The purpose of this study is to compare the operative outcomes and complications of mini-percutaneous nephrolithotomy (mini-PCNL) versus standard PCNL for renal stones.
Due to the ongoing opioid epidemic in the United States, there is increased attention and interest in reducing the use of opioid medication after surgery to minimize the risk of opioid tolerance and addiction, decrease the pool of unused opioids available for misuse, and maximize the use of alternative pain management medications and techniques. The purpose of this study is to implement and assess a standard way of prescribing opioids following percutaneous nephrolithotomy.
The purpose of this study is to measure how well two different devices work to break up and remove kidney stones. We are comparing a newer device to an older one to see which one is faster at breaking up kidney stones. We hypothesize that the Trilogy device will increase the stone clearance rate by 25% compared to the Shockpulse-SE device.
