OBJECTIVES To compare the morbidity and success rates among different age groups of children undergoing percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) using adult-or pediatric-sized devices. PCNL for renal stones in children may present problems because of small size, mobility of the pediatric kidney, and the small size of the collecting system.
