Abstract

To determine anatomical variations between the prone, supine, and supine oblique positions that are likely to affect percutaneous renal access. Twenty patients underwent computed tomography urograms in the supine and prone positions. Twenty patients underwent supine oblique and prone scans. Mean nephrostomy tract length, maximum access angle, and anteriorposterior renal position were calculated. Mean nephrostomy tract length was shorter in the prone position (82.6 mm right kidney, 85.4 mm left kidney) compared with the supine position (108.3 mm right kidney, P
