Kidney Stones Treatment in Patna

Diagnosis for Kidney Stones

Before carrying out the treatment process, the doctor will perform a number of diagnostic procedures to determine the right approach of treatment available for the patient. During the initial consultation, the doctor will physically examine the condition and ask the patient about the medical history and the symptoms that he/she is experiencing. Additionally, to complete the diagnosis, the kidney stone specialist doctor may recommend the patient to go for any one or more of the following tests:

  • Urinalysis
  • Blood Tests
  • Imaging Tests
  • Creatinine Test
  • Blood Urea Nitrogen [BUN] Test

4 Methods for Kidney Stone Removal

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.
  • Lithotripsy (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.

Surgical Methods for Kidney Stone Removal

Let us understand the four major surgical procedures performed for the removal of kidney stones, depending on the size and location of the stones:

  • Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy [ESWL]: This is a non-invasive procedure for the removal of kidney stones. In this procedure, the surgeon uses a series of shock waves generated by a machine known as a lithotripter. The shock waves are focussed onto the renal stone externally through the skin and tissues to break them into smaller fragments. Once the stones are broken down, they are flushed out of the body through urine. This procedure can take multiple sittings to completely break the stones. The whole procedure is performed under general or spinal anesthesia to make sure that the patient does not feel any sort of pain or discomfort throughout the entire procedure.
  • Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery [RIRS]: This is one of the most advanced methods of treating kidney stones that are of the size of 8mm to 14mm. Performed under the influence of anesthesia, the surgeon in this procedure inserts a double JJ stent into the ureter via the urethra. The stent enlarges the urethral passage for a smooth movement of the stones. The surgeon then uses a thin, flexible endoscope, fitted with a tiny laser at the end of it. The surgeon uses x-rays and imaging tests to locate the stones and accordingly break them into smaller fragments with the help of the laser. This procedure may require multiple sittings to completely break the stones and flush them out of the body. Once the stones are flushed out, the stents will be removed. However, in the case of a staghorn calculus [type of kidney stone that resembles the horns of a stag], it may take a while longer for the surgeon to completely break the stones.
  • Ureteroscopic Lithotripsy [URSL]: This procedure is carried out when the size of the stone is between 8mm to 14mm. During this procedure, the patient is first administered spinal anaesthesia to sedate the lower half of the body. The surgeon in the procedure may choose to insert stents through the ureteral passage for a smooth movement of the stones. A medical equipment known as ureteroscope is passed through the ureter with a camera and laser attached to the end. The camera guides the surgeon by providing live images of the organs and tissues inside the body. The stones are then subsequently broken down into smaller pieces with laser and are flushed out through urine. Once the stones are completely removed, the surgeon removes the stents.
  • Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy [PCNL]: This is a minimally invasive surgery for the removal of Kidney stones that are larger than 14mm. Performed under the influence of anesthesia, the surgeon begins the procedure by making a keyhole incision of about 1cm on the lower back area. The surgeon then inserts medical equipment known as a nephoscope through the incision to break the stones into smaller pieces. The stones are then removed after breaking them up into small fragments. Once the stones are removed, the surgeon closes the wound/incisions using surgical sutures.

How to prepare for kidney stone removal surgery?

There are a set of instructions given by the hospital or your urologist before your kidney stone treatment. Here are some pre-surgery instructions for kidney stone removal surgery –

  • Inform your doctor of any current medical condition.
  • Do not eat or drink anything after midnight prior to the day of the kidney stone removal procedure. It can hinder the effect of anesthesia and or cause medical problems.
  • If you smoke or consume alcohol, stop smoking and drinking.
  • Inform your doctor of any ongoing medications. Some medicines such as blood thinners shouldn’t be taken before the surgery.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothes to avoid pressure on the surgical site.

What to expect after your kidney stone removal surgery 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).
