What are Kidney Stones?

Kidney stones are hard masses of salts and minerals that form in the kidneys. Kidney stones are also known as renal calculi, nephrolithiasis, and urolithiasis. When the urine in a person's body contains high levels of salts and minerals, it can form kidney stones. The stones develop in the kidneys but can affect other parts of the urinary tract as well. Sometimes, the kidney stones form without any symptoms and get flushed through the urine without causing any discomfort. Other times, the stones may travel to the ureter causing immense sudden pain in the lower back of the person. A kidney stone can vary in size; from as small as a granule of sand to big enough to hurt you.

Diagnosis

The urologists at Pristyn Care are highly experienced in conducting a thorough diagnosis for kidney stones. The diagnosis may include a physical examination, in which the doctor will ask about your medical history and current medication if you are taking any. However, to detect the underlying cause, the doctor would recommend a few diagnostic tests:

  • Blood test - A blood test can reveal the amount of uric acid or calcium in your body. The test can also help evaluate the health of your kidneys and decide upon the necessary treatment.
  • Imaging tests - Ultrasound, X-ray, and CT scan are usually done to confirm the existence and size of the kidney stones.
  • Urine test-The urine culture is mostly recommended to detect the level of infection in the body. 

Procedure

After the results of the diagnosis, the doctor will initiate and advise the best-suited kidney stones treatment according to the condition.

  • ESWL (Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy) - It uses shock waves to break the kidney stone into small pieces that can move through the urinary tract & pass from the body. 
  • URS (Ureteroscopy) - In this, the ureteroscope is passed through the urethra and into the ureter to remove a stone using laser energy.
  • RIRS (Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery) - It is a procedure for doing surgery within the kidney using a flexible ureteroscope to remove the upper ureter and small kidney stones.
  • PCNL (Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy) - It is a minimally invasive procedure in which large kidney stones are removed through a small incision in the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the causes of kidney stones?

expand_icon

Kidney stones typically have no definite cause. Kidney stones form when the urine contains more crystal-forming substances like calcium, oxalate, and uric acid than the fluid in the urine can dilute. Certain factors such as obesity, low intake of water, high blood pressure, more intake of animal protein in the diet, and family history of kidney stones can increase a person’s risk of developing kidney stones.

Different types of kidney stones

Knowing the type of kidney stone is necessary to determine the best line of treatment and reduce the risk of getting the stones again in the future. Following are the different types of kidney stones:

Calcium stones - These are the most common type of kidney stones a person may develop. Calcium stones form due to deposits of calcium oxalate. Causes of calcium stones include high amounts of vitamin D, ill-dietary habits, intestinal bypass surgery, and metabolic disorders. 

Struvite stones - Struvite stones may form from a urinary tract infection. These stones grow faster than any other type and do not show any symptoms in most cases.

Uric acid stones - These stones often form when people lose too much water from their bodies due to conditions like chronic diarrhea. They can also form when a person's protein intake is too high. Genetic factors like diabetes can also be a reason for uric acid stones. 

Cystine stones - People with a hereditary disorder called cystinuria can develop kidney stones. Cystinuria is a condition in which the kidneys excrete too much amino acid. 

What is the cost of kidney stones treatment in Delhi?

The average cost of kidney stone treatment in Delhi varies depending on the patient’s medical needs and health condition. The cost of kidney stones surgery may vary from one person to another. The estimated cost of different treatment options for kidney stone removal in Delhi are:

  • URSL- INR 65,000 to INR 75,000
  • RIRS- INR 95,000 to INR 1,05,000
  • ESWL- INR 35,000 to INR 45,000
  • PCNL- INR 65,000 to INR 75,000

Techniques used to treat kidney stones according to their sizes

  • Kidney stones less than 100 mm can be flushed with water and medication.
  • For kidney stones between 10-20 mm, the location and the composition of the stones need to be considered before deciding the treatment.
  • ESWL usually treats stones larger than 20 mm

How to reduce the risk of kidney stones at home?

  • You should drink enough fluid to prevent your urine from becoming concentrated with waste products. You can know whether your urine is concentrated or not just by the color of the urine; the darker the color, the more concentrated it is. If you exercise or if the weather is hot and humid outside, keep drinking water to prevent the body from getting dehydrated.
  • Eat more fruits and vegetables to make your urine more acidic in nature. If your urine is not acidic in nature, there are fewer chances that you will develop kidney stones. But, if your intake of animal protein is very high, your risk of developing kidney stones can increase.
  • Reduce excess salt from your diet. Cut down on foods such as packaged meals, sandwich meats, canned soups, etc.
  • If you are overweight, try to get to normal body weight. Seek guidance from a dietician and begin a weight-loss procedure to reduce the risk of getting kidney stones.

What happens if you delay kidney stone treatment?

Delaying kidney stone treatment is a common mistake many people make. If you or your loved one has a kidney stone, it is important to know that delaying kidney stone removal can lead to complications and kidney damage. Untreated kidney stones can cause hydronephrosis, a condition where the kidney swells up due to the build-up of urine. If the stones disrupt the flow of the urine and prevent it from getting drained properly, it can lead to urine accumulation. Untreated stones may clog the ureter and form kidney infections. When left untreated for a long time, the stones can also make the ureters narrower. Untreated kidney stones that grow and cause complications, such as infection​, fever, or blood in the urine, can be particularly dangerous.

Different treatment options for kidney stones based on the size and location of the stone.

Kidney stones or renal calculi occur in different shapes or sizes depending on how long they are present in the body. Sometimes, these renal stones are minute and get flushed out through urine without medications or therapies. However, some stones can be stubborn and keep on accumulating over a period of time. Renal stones of such stubborn nature often obstruct ureteral passage or even form staghorn calculus. Some of the treatment options for kidney stones are as below-

Non-surgical methods - When the size of the stone is less than 5mm, urologists usually recommend non-surgical procedures for removing kidney stones. These may include home remedies, therapeutic medicines, medications such as pain-relievers, etc., that can help flush out kidney stones. The doctors usually recommend drinking excess water and staying hydrated to increase the fluid concentration in the urine. Several medications for kidney stones include -

  • Ibuprofen (Advil) for pain
  • Acetaminophen (Tylenol) for pain
  • Naproxen sodium (Aleve) for pain
  • Allopurinol (Zyloprim) for uric acid stones
  • Thiazide diuretics to prevent calcium stones from forming
  • Phosphorus solutions to prevent calcium stones from forming
  • Sodium bicarbonate or sodium citrate to make the urine less acidic

In addition, the doctor may recommend some alpha-blockers such as tamsulosin (Flomax), dutasteride, etc., that can help the muscles in your ureter relax, making it easier for you to pass the stone quickly and with less pain.

Surgical methods - Surgical or less invasive procedures are regarded as the most effective way to treat large kidney stones. Doctors usually recommend surgical procedures for kidney stones if the size of the stones is greater than 5mm. There are 4 procedures to remove kidney stones -

  • Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (URSL) - It is a non-invasive surgery that uses external shockwaves to break the stones into smaller pieces. The patient is administered spinal anesthesia to reduce the pain as the stones are flushed out of the body. ESWL is a conventional procedure that may require multiple sittings to break the stones completely.
  • Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy/Nephrolithotripsy (PCNL) - PCNL is an advanced procedure to treat kidney stones of size greater than 14mm. It is also known as tunnel surgery due to the nature of small incisions. It involves small incisions near the flank area while the patient is under general anesthesia. The surgeon then uses a nephroscope to locate and break the stones into smaller pieces. If the stone is removed in its intact state, it is called nephrolithotomy, and if the stone is broken into smaller fragments, it is termed as nephrolithotripsy.
  • Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery (RIRS) - RIRS is an advanced procedure to treat kidney stones with sizes between 8mm to 15mm. The patient is first administered with either spinal or general anesthesia for a painless procedure. The doctor then inserts a thin, flexible endoscope attached with a tiny laser on the other end. The stones are subsequently broken into smaller fragments and flushed out through urine. The surgeon may choose to insert DJ stents before RIRS treatment. Stents enlarge the passage of the urinary tract for smooth movement of stones. The stents are removed when the stones are thoroughly flushed out of the body.
  • Ureteroscopic lithotripsy (URSL) - Similar to RIRS, ureteroscopic lithotripsy also uses a thin ureteroscope that is attached to the camera and laser on the other end. URSL is also an effective surgical option for moderately sized kidney stones. The camera guides the surgeon inside the body to locate and break the stones. The urologists may insert ureteral stents to ease the movement of stones during the expulsion. The patient is administered with local or general anesthesia for a painless procedure.

What to expect after your kidney stones procedure?

The patient is usually under the effects of anesthesia after the surgery and may suffer from mild dizziness and discomfort in case of stent insertion. Patients who have undergone invasive surgery may feel slight numbness around the site of the incision. Doctors at Pristyn Care guide you through the recovery period and monitor your health regularly to ensure you are in the best of your health. You may experience the following after your kidney stone surgeries -

  • A small amount of bleeding in your urine for a few days to a few weeks after the surgery due to stent insertion.
  • Mild pain and nausea as the stones are expelled from the body after the treatment.
  • Some bruising on the back or side after your shock waves lithotripsy procedure.

Complications of untreated kidney stones

Kidney stone is a major condition that usually results in unbearable pain. However, people are at greater risk if they ignore the symptoms by prolonging the treatment. It can lead to several complications that can eventually become life-threatening-

  • Hydronephrosis - When the stone blocks the ureteral passage, it creates difficulty for the urine to completely drain out from the kidneys. This leads to the accumulation of urine in the kidneys, causing swelling of a kidney. Hydronephrosis can occur in one or both kidneys, depending on the size and number of stones.
  • Renal scarring - Urinary tract infection is a common bacterial illness that occurs due to prolonged kidney stones in the ureter. These stones can cause continuous scarring around the stone damaging the tissues and organs around the kidneys causing permanent renal failure.
  • Kidney failure - Prolonged kidney stones can cause loss of kidney functions which can result in the need to remove either of the kidneys (nephrectomy).
