5 PANG technique: Accepted for publication by UROLOGY-GOLD JOURNAL (The official journal of the Société Internationale d'Urologie)
Designed, fabricated and patented by Dr Ashish Patil, the innovative 5 part Percutaneous Access Needle with Glidewire (5-PANG) is a novel technique in an attempt to make percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) tract establishment a fast, safe and less cumbersome procedure. The technique decreases the PCNL time by allowing fast and flawless approach to the kidney during single stitch surgeries for renal stones (PCNL). The technique was also presented at the World Congress of Endourology and was well appreciated. This has turned out to be the first international innovative publication of North Maharashtra. We Congratulate Dr Ashish on his achievement.

Dr Ashish Patil the head of Institute of Urology recently presented two of his innovative techniques which are being practiced at the Institute since 2 years.
1) 5PANG technique for initial tract dilatation during PCNL
2) Fountain technique for evacuation of large vesical calculi
5 PANG technique: The term coined at the “Institute” stands for ‘ 5 Part Access Needle over the Glide wire technique’;. Herein Dr Ashish Patil has invented a 5 part initial puncture needle as a substitute for the conventional 3 part initial puncture needle used for percutaneous access during a PCNL. The new needle creates a tract of sufficient size to allow direct access to the metal tract dilators hence obviating the need for cumbersome conventional tract dilatation. The results of the initial 67 cases were presented at the WORLD CONGRESS.
Fountain technique : Essentially is a technique described by Dr Patil etal to be used during PCCL(Percutaneous Cystolitholapaxy) . Dr Patil here described the use of simultaneous urethral flush and suprapubic drainage of stone fragments . The technique accentuates the fragment evacuation in cases of large vesical calculi hence reducing the operative time. The technique is based on the Magic Fountain principal described by Hero.
