Abstract

Balloon dilation is an effective method of percutaneous renal access, but it can be impossible in patients with perirenal scarring. We report the use of an atherotomy cutting balloon for dilation of the chronic nephrostomy tract. The ease of use makes this device a useful alternative to standard dilation techniques.
