About Kidney Stones

What is Kidney Stones?

Kidney stones are a major problem nowadays that arises when the kidney fails to filter out certain waste. 1 out of every 10 people is suffering from kidney stones. Half of them end up with kidney failure if left untreated. Recurrence is very high with each passing year.

The function of the kidney is to get rid of waste products and maintain electrolyte levels in the body; Kidneys also help control blood pressure. Sometimes, certain wastes like salts, and minerals that cannot be filtered sticks to the inner lining of the kidneys. These wastes that are not filtered accumulate and form hard deposits like a stone. These stones can range from the size of a sugar crystal to a much larger size than it which can cause a blockage.

Percutaneous nephrolithotomy is also a minimally-invasive process for the removal of stones from the kidney. A small piercing wound is made which is of about 1 cm into the skin. After which, the stones of more than 2 cm in size are removed. These large stones are usually present near the pelvic region area.
