The article presents a study on the theoretical calculation of optimal depth in the percutaneous native kidney biopsy (PKNB) conducted by two experienced nephrologists in Romania. It states that PNKB is a very useful method for renal disease diagnosis but some problems like hemorrhagic complications or inadequate tissue sample for the diagnosis may still occur, however, the results showed that the use of mathematical formula improved the safety of PNKB and the accuracy of diagnosis. It is also concluded that the application of mathematical formula for optimal depth of PNKB can significantly reduce the incidence of bleeding complications and the enough renal tissue for diagnostic evaluation.
