Percutaneous nephrolithotomy of an intrathoracic kidney.
We present a 35-year-old woman with symptomatic urolithiasis in an intrathoracic kidney. Percutaneous nephrolithotomy was successfully performed after ureteroscopy failed because of the unusual length of the ureter associated with the kidney position. We report the first case of percutaneous nephrolithotomy of an intrathoracic kidney.
