Drainage and Embolization Techniques
The first step in urinary interventional procedures was made by Goodwin when in 1955 he developed the procedure of percutaneous nephrostomy. Since then interventional procedures for the urinary tract have multiplied such that today, with the contribution made by new technology, they range from percutaneous nephrostomy to ureteric stenting, from ureteroplasty to the treatment of renal and/or vesical bleeding caused by trauma or inoperable neoplasm.
