  • CONCLUSIONS: The smaller tract size could cause FUTI with poor fluid drainage that may lead to elevate renal pelvic pressure and trigger bacteremia-causing pyelovenous backflow. Filling the calyx and renal pelvis by a staghorn stone and the resulting obstruction of fluid drainage may elevate intrarenal pelvis pressure. Longer operative time is likely to increase renal pelvic pressure over longer periods, which may account for FUTI after pediatric PCNL.Younger age, right-sided PCNL, staghorn stones, mini-PCNL, longer operative time, and blood transfusion are risk factors for FUTI. First-, second-, and third-generation cephalosporins are equally effective for prophylaxis in prepubertal children undergoing PCNL.

  • CONCLUSIONS: Complex congenital anomalies of the kidney and the urinary tract (CAKUT) can be diagnosed at any age. Normal antenatal abdominal ultrasound does not exclude CAKUT. Every patient with congenital abnormalities of the kidney and the urinary tract requires long-term follow up, because of increased risk of chronic kidney disease.
