  • What Is ESWL Treatment?

    ESWL procedure, or Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy, is a non-invasive treatment for kidney stones that uses shock waves and x-ray/ultrasounds to break down the stones and help them pass naturally. It works best for kidney stones that are small in size and even eliminates the need for major surgery in several cases. Since ESWL procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, it does not require a hospital stay and even has a short recovery period which serves as a bonus. On top of that, the risk of postoperative complications is incredibly low. Reach out to Pristyn Care to get effective ESWL treatment.

    What Happens During ESWL Kidney Stone Treatment?

    ESWL Diagnosis

    In general, the doctors suggest the following tests before ESWL treatment: 

    • Imaging tests (X Rays, abdominal ultrasound, MRI)
    • Blood urea nitrogen (BUN) test
    • Blood test
    • Urinalysis

    ESWL Procedure:

    Tfhe patient is made to lie on a water-filled tub or cushion. The water or cushion prevents the surrounding organs from getting damaged. 

    In the process, the surgeon uses various imaging tests like x-rays or abdominal ultrasounds to locate the stone. Upon locating the stone, the surgeon releases a series of high-energy sound waves to break the stone into fine pieces. The surgeons adjust the sound waves’ power and intervals accordingly to break the stone into smaller fragments.

    Once the stone is broken into smaller pieces, they are flushed out of the body.

    The ESWL procedure generally takes 30-45 minutes, depending on the stone density, the medical health of the patient, and the surgeon’s expertise. ESWL procedure may not be effective for all types of kidney stones and may require multiple sessions to break the stones completely. The surgeon may also choose to insert a ureteral stent in case of a large stone. A stent enlarges the passage of the ureter for smooth movement of stones and helps reduce the pain during the stone expulsion.

    How to prepare for ESWL Treatment?

    All urologists provide specific instructions before ESWL procedure to help you prepare for the procedure. Listed below are the common preparation tips for the ESWL procedure. 

    • Wear loose-fitting clothes to avoid discomfort around the surgical site.
    • Inform your urologist about any ongoing medications or health conditions before the ESWL treatment.
    • Avoid smoking tobacco or anything else before the treatment.
    • Talk to your doctor about any allergies related to anesthesia.
    • Avoid eating or drinking 8 to 9 hours prior to the treatment, as it can delay the effects of anesthesia.

    How to recover after ESWL treatment?

    Recovery after ESWL treatment generally takes a week. But, patients can resume their day-to-day tasks within 2 to 3 days. Some after-care tips can speed up the recovery process, including: 

    • Avoid strenuous activities. However, you can indulge in minimal physical activity. 
    • Increase your consumption of water. 
    • Add more fiber to your diet. 
    • Do not eat food that’s too spicy or contains high animal protein for a few weeks post-ESWL. 
    • If you experience any abnormal symptoms, reach out to your doctor immediately. 

    What Are The Benefits of ESWL Treatment?

    ESWL procedure is a relatively new procedure that accompanies fewer risks and complications compared to traditional treatment methods. Some benefits of extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy include: 

    • It involves no cuts or stitches
    • It does not cause bleeding
    • The recovery period is much shorter than conventional surgeries
    • Shorter hospital stay
    • It is performed on an outpatient basis
    • You can resume daily activities within a week

    FAQs on ESWL Treatment for Kidney Stones

    What are some possible side effects of ESWL?

    ESWL procedure does not cause severe side effects. However, some patients might notice blood in the urine and mild abdominal pain for a few days after the treatment. Doctors generally suggest medicines to manage these symptoms. 

    Will I experience pain during ESWL treatment?

    No. ESWL procedure is a non-invasive treatment that is performed under anesthesia. Therefore, it is highly unlikely for a patient to feel pain or discomfort during the treatment.  

    What size kidney stones can be treated with ESWL procedure?

    ESWL procedure is best used to treat kidney stones that are bigger than 5 mm in size. These stones are the ones which do not get flushed on their own and require medical intervention for elimination.

    Can pregnant women undergo ESWL procedure?

    No. ESWL procedure uses high-intensity acoustic waves that can be harmful to the baby.

    What is ESWL treatment Cost in India?

    ESWL Treatment Costs in India can vary from Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 50,000.
