Prospective evaluation of outcome of percutaneous nephrolithotomy using the 'STONE' nephrolithometry score: A single-centre experience.
To assess the prediction of stone clearance and complications of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) using the 'STONE' nephrolithometry score, assessing stone size, tract length (skin-to-stone distance), degree of obstruction, number of calyces invol

Comparison of Guy and Clinical Research Office of the Endourological Society Nephrolithometry Scoring Systems for Predicting Stone-Free Status and Complication Rates After Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy: A Single Center Study with 437 Cases.
To compare the Guy and Clinical Research Office of the Endourological Society (CROES) scoring systems in predicting postpercutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) stone-free rate and complications.

Value of preoperative stone scoring systems in predicting the results of percutaneous nephrolithotomy.
Guy's Stone Score and S.T.O.N.E. Nephrolithometry nomograms have been introduced for systematic and quantitative assessment of kidney stones. The aim of this study was to reveal the value of two scorings systems, Guy and S.T.O.N.E, most frequently us

Percutaneous nephrolithotomy for isolated calyceal stones: How important is the stone location?
To evaluate the effect of percutaneous access site on the success and complication rates of isolated calyceal stones.

Utility of the Guy's stone score based on computed tomographic scan findings for predicting percutaneous nephrolithotomy outcomes.
To evaluate the ability of the Guy's stone score (GS) to predict the success rates and complications on the basis of the computed tomographic (CT) scan findings for renal stones treated with percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL).

Lessons learned from the CROES percutaneous nephrolithotomy global study.
The purpose of the study was to give an overview of the data derived from the CROES PCNL Global Study published previously in 25 articles.
