Nephrostomy (PCNL)

A small flexible tube is placed though your skin (percutaneous) into the kidney to drain your urine. This is usually performed because of a blockage of the drainage of the kidney. If the blockage to your kidney is left untreated, your kidney will become damaged.
 
The nephrostomy tube insertion is will take between 45 to 90 minutes to perform.
