  • An unusual non-urological procedure has been performed. In 2009, a young male of 19 years, who presented with jaundice and fever due to stones in the biliary ducts of his transplanted liver, was treated by ‘Percutaneous Trans hepatic Cholangio lithotripsy’ using a technique similar to ‘Percutaneous Nephrosto Lithotripsy’ (PCNL).The case was a poor surgical risk as his first liver transplant had failed and he already had a surgery for revision of biliary obstruction second transplant.
