Abstract

Liver injury during percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is very rare and is usually overlooked. In this report, we present a case of inadvertent liver injury during right supracostal PCNL and describe diagnostic tools, conservative management measures, and outcome. A literature review of potential risk factors and suggested techniques to avoid injuring the liver during PCNL is also presented.
