What Is URSL Surgery?

URSL or Ureteroscopic Lithotripsy is a common treatment for kidney stones, which is generally used to remove kidney stones that are small to medium in size (7 to 10 mm). This modern technique is also used for stones that turn immune to conservative methods of treatment such as medicines and other non-surgical solutions. It uses high-precision laser technique to extract kidney stones stuck in the ureter and offers relief from painful and discomforting symptoms while causing minimal complications.

What Happens During URSL Surgery?

What Happens During URSL Surgery?

Diagnosis

The urologists need to make some assessments before performing URSL. These assessments are made through a couple of diagnostic tests, including Imaging tests (X-ray, Abdominal Ultrasound, MRI), Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) test, Blood Test, and Urinalysis. The aim of carrying out these assessments is to figure out the size of the stone, the number of stones that need to be removed, and their location. 

These tests also help doctors look for any underlying diseases that can cause complications in the procedure. The urologists will proceed with the procedure only after assessing the results of the tests carefully.

Procedure

This surgery is performed in the following steps: 

  • The patient is administered spinal or general anesthesia, depending upon the requirement. 
  • Then, the surgeon inserts a thin, long fiber-optic scope called a ureteroscope into the ureteral passage through the urethra. Simultaneously, the surgeon uses x-ray to see inside the kidneys and ureters and locate the stones exactly.
  • Once the stone is located, it is collected in a stone basket and eventually pulled out of the system. 
  • If the stone is too large in size, then the surgeon uses a precision laser to break it into smaller pieces. The small stones can pass through the system naturally. 
  • The surgeon usually inserts ureteral stents to help flush out the stones from the body. The stent expands the passage of the ureter, which makes it easier for the stone fragments to travel through the ureter and out of the body.

How to prepare for URSL surgery?

How to prepare for URSL surgery?

If you’re about to undergo URSL surgery, it is advisable to prepare yourself for the surgery in advance. This includes following some precautions and making some lifestyle changes to promote the effectiveness of the surgery. Here are some ways in which you can prepare for your URSL surgery: 

  • Talk to your doctor and discuss your symptoms, medical history, and other important details in advance. You can also ask the doctor to explain the treatment procedure in advance and the risks associated with it. 
  • If you’re taking some medication, convey it to your doctor in advance. The doctor might ask you to discontinue some medicines before surgery, such as blood thinners, etc. 
  • If you’ve had an allergic reaction to anesthesia in the past, make sure your doctor is aware of this detail. An allergic reaction to anesthesia can delay the surgery, and may also lead to other complications. 
  • Avoid eating or drinking anything 6 to 8 hours before the surgery. This measure helps in preventing complications related to anesthesia.
  • Stop smoking or using any product that contains tobacco as it might affect the effectiveness of the surgery. 

What to expect post URSL surgery?

What to expect post URSL surgery?

Here’s what you can expect after URSL surgery: 

You will be shifted to a recovery room, and the doctors will monitor your condition. If the doctors do not suspect complications, you’ll be discharged on the same day. 

It is normal to experience some pain and discomfort due to stent insertion. The doctor will prescribe medicines to help relieve the pain. 

Some people might notice blood in their urine, which is also very normal and generally subsides within a week or two of the surgery. 

Recovery after URSL surgery

Recovery after URSL surgery

The recovery period after URSL surgery is quite short and most patients can resume their routine within a week of the surgery, without experiencing any complications.Taking some precautions and making some changes in your lifestyle can help you recover even faster. Here are some tips that can help you recover quicker: 

  • Eat a healthy diet and drink plenty of fluids. Make sure that your diet is packed with fiber. 
  • Do not indulge in heavy workout for a couple of days after the surgery. 
  • Make sure you take the medicines prescribed by the doctor without fail. Skipping these medicines can delay the recovery process. Also, if you experience abnormal symptoms, get in touch with your doctor immediately.
