Keywords:Percutaneous nephrolithotomy, Nephrostomy tube, Inferior vena cava, Renal vein
Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is considered as the gold standard treatment for renal stones > 2cm. We encountered a patient who underwent PCNL and inadvertently placement ofpercutaneous nephrostomy tube in the inferior vena cava through the left renal vein from the left Kidney.There was profuse bleeding during the procedure (PCNL), and the procedure was abandoned by placing
a nephrostomy tube. PNT was removed after 04 days in two steps without any bleeding.
