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.

Treatment options for kidney stones

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.

What size kidney stones require surgery?

  • Kidney stones less than 100 mm do not require surgery and 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 surgical treatment.
  • Stones larger than 20 mm are usually treated by ESWL.

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 types 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. 

Tests for kidney stones diagnosis

If your pain indicates kidney stones, the urologist may recommend you undergo the following tests.

1. 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.

2. Imaging tests - The urologist may recommend imaging tests such as X-ray and CT scan to confirm the existence of the kidney stones around can also help in kidney stone diagnosis.

3. Urine test - You may be recommended to undergo a urine test over two consecutive days. The urine collection may show the level of minerals that you are excreting with your urine.

What are the symptoms of kidney stones?

The most common symptom of kidney stones is a sharp pain or cramping in the lower back of the body. The pain often starts suddenly and comes back in waves. Other symptoms of kidney stones may include:

  • Burning sensation while passing urine
  • An intense urge to urinate
  • Urine that is dark red in color
  • Blood in the urine
  • Nausea and vomiting

What are the causes and risk factors of kidney stones?

  • A family history of kidney stones can put you at a greater risk of developing kidney stones.
  • Not drinking enough water is one of the major causes of the formation of kidney stones. If your daily water intake is very low, you are likely to suffer from kidney stones.
  • Overweight or obesity has also been linked to kidney stones. If your BMI is too high, you may develop kidney stones down the line.
  • Consuming a diet rich in animal protein and sugar can also increase your risk of kidney stones. Too much salt in your food can also be a reason for kidney stone formation.
  • Medical conditions such as tubular acidosis, thyroid, diabetes, cystinuria are major risk factors for kidney stones.
  • Medications including calcium and vitamin c supplements and antidepressants can increase the risk of kidney stones.
  • Previous incidents of kidney stones where the stones were flushed out completely may also develop symptoms again.

Important facts on kidney stones:

  • The global prevalence of kidney stones ranges between 2-10%.
    Kidney stones are most commonly reported between the age of 30-60 years.
  • According to studies, there is a positive correlation between the temperature and prevalence of kidney stones.
  • The stones are formed as solid crystals crystallizing out of dissolved minerals from the urine and may be triggered by metabolic or environmental factors.
  • Almost 70% of renal stones (kidney stones) in developed countries are formed from calcium oxalate and/or phosphate stones.

What happens if you delay kidney stone removal surgery?

Delaying kidney stone removal 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 surgery can lead to complications and kidney damage. 

Small kidney stones may pass out on their own, sometimes with or without pain. But if the stone is large in size or is causing an obstruction in the urinary tract, your urologist will suggest surgery to treat the condition effectively. A major risk of delaying kidney stones is hydronephrosis. Hydronephrosis is a serious medical condition caused due to a blockage in the ureter, often caused due to kidney stones stuck in the ureter. 

Large kidney stones or kidney stones that remain untreated after a long time can also cause permanent damage to the kidney and may even lead to kidney loss. Severe kidney damage associated with untreated or large kidney stones often occurs without any symptoms, which is why it is very important to undergo kidney stone removal surgery to treat the condition. Delaying treatment for kidney stones is also associated with an increased risk of patient morbidity and more frequent use of antibiotics.

Why minimally invasive surgeries are better than open surgeries for kidney stone removal?

Undergoing conventional open surgery for kidney stone removal is nothing short of adding to the already existing pain. With modern and advanced treatments, you can easily say goodbye to the discomforts of kidney stones without any pain, incisions, or stitches. These advanced surgical procedures offer a speedy and smooth recovery, thereby making the treatment even more convenient for you.
