Abstract

A new introducer needle that prevents tracking facilitates rapid and predictable entry into the chosen posterior calix with minimal use of fluoroscopy for lithotripsy or renal drainage. This device should make it possible for urologists and radiologists to acquire rapidly the skill to access the kidney in virtually all patients.
