Percutaneous access to the kidney has evolved from its role in the treatment of simple renal calculi to an integral component of minimally invasive treatment for advanced urologic conditions. In this chapter we will explore minimally invasive treatment options for three complex renal conditions: calyceal diverticulum, infundibular stenosis with hydrocalyx, and symptomatic simple renal cysts. Percutaneous management of each condition is a minimally invasive treatment option, and when performed correctly, can provide symptomatic relief with minimal morbidity. We will discuss appropriate technique, expected outcomes, complications, and appropriate follow-up.
