Figure 1: Procedures for tract tamponade after stone extraction: (1) The sheath was retracted to the inner opening of the access tract. An 8F Foley catheter was inserted and inflated with 3 ml to 5 ml water, slightly retracted to obliterate the inner opening. (2) Tied the Foley catheter beneath the bifurcation and removed the bifurcation part to allow the inner working sheath passing through the Foley catheter. (3) The renal parenchyma was packed with SurgicelTM. (4) The SurgicelTM was compacted with smaller dilators through the working sheath for 5 min, then the Foley catheter was deflated and removed. (5) The Foley catheter was removed and the SurgicelTM plug was left in the access tract of renal parenchyma
