An irregular-shaped solid mass or crystal that can be as small as a grain of sand or can be the size of a golf ball is called a Kidney stone. Small stones can pass through the urinary tract while large stones need surgery. A larger kidney stone can get trapped in the ureter. When this happens, the stone can cause bleeding and keep urine leaving the body. There are four types of kidney stones: calcium oxalate, uric acid, struvite, and cysteine. Shockwave Lithotripsy, Ureteroscopy, and Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy surgeries are used to treat kidney stones.
It is a daycare procedure. The surgery is used to treat stones in the kidney & ureter. Shock waves are focused on the stone using x-rays or ultrasound to pinpoint the stone. Repeated firing of shockwaves breaks the stone into pieces and these pieces pass out in the urine over a few weeks.
Lithotripsy is performed to extract stones from the kidney. The procedure takes about 45 minutes to an hour. There are chances that the patient may need more than one session to treat the stones completely.
A stone that’s smaller than 4mm could take about two to three weeks to completely pass.
Surgical treatment is recommended for stones 0.5 centimeters in size and larger as well as for patients who fail conservative management.
Costs of kidney stone treatment depend on the severity of the ailment, the City of your residence, diagnostic centres, hospital, and equipment used by healthcare experts.
Avoid stone-forming foods: Beets, chocolate, spinach, rhubarb, tea, and most nuts are rich in oxalate, which can contribute to kidney stones.
Left untreated, kidney stones can block the ureters or make them narrower. This increases the risk of infection, or urine may build up and put added strain on the kidneys causing further complications.
