Abstract

Almost all patients in the UK with obstructed and/or infected kidneys are referred to interventional radiology for percutaneous nephrostomy and/or placement of an anterograde JJ stent. Although this 'tradition' is going strong in the UK, urologists throughout the world have evolved their practice to encompass such interventional procedures in their remit. We have set up a local anaesthetic list 'interventional urology list' in our ESWL suite. We present our 4-year experience and discuss the benefits that this interventional list brings to our patients, our trainees, our interventional radiology colleagues and to the hospital trust.
