    A new method of directing radiographic grids for percutaneous renal puncture
    Author(s): Elena William*

    This in-vitro study compares a revolutionary radiographic grid aiming device to the traditional "bull's eye" puncture approach to see which is more effective for percutaneous renal puncture. This new gadget targets using two radiopaque rings, which is somewhat similar to how gun sights work. The tool is made to make the "bull's eye" puncture technique easier and more precise. We used a pig kidney within a chicken carcass as the study model and contrasted this device to the traditional "bull's eye" piercing procedure. Two first-year residents punctured the target porcine calyces sequentially using the radiographic grid aiming device (Group A) and the traditional bull's eye approach (Group B). Data that was relevant was gathered and examined. The overall success rate for renal puncture did not increase as a result of using the innovative rad.. Read More»
