Abstract

B-PCNL carries a higher overall complication rate than U-PCNL when the modified Clavien system is used for classification. Patients undergoing U-PCNL who have more than one tract dilatation have a higher complication rate than those who have only one tract dilatation. High-grade complications are uncommon for both procedures.
