Introduction: Percutaneous nephrostomy (PCN) tube placement is generally performed in radiologic departments worldwide. However, there are a few urologist-directed studies about PCN performed with ultrasound guidance. Needle direction using a convex abdominal ultrasound probe might be difficult in unexperienced hands. In order to perform this procedure easily, we propose that a probe placed on flank or intercostal region and a long grooved needle director that never allows needle movement would be useful. We considered a transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) probe was suitable to resolve this issue.
