Ureteric Stones

Overview

What are ureteric stones?
Ureteric stones refer to the kidney stones that get stuck in either one or both of the ureters, i.e., the long tube that carries urine from the kidneys to the bladder. The size of the stone varies from one person to another and larger stones can completely obstruct the flow of urine. This can lead to severe pain. Ureteric stones can be removed surgically if other treatment options fail to work. 
Complications:

  • Renal failure
  • Ureteral stricture
  • Sepsis
  • Urine extravasation
  • Perinephric abscess. 

Causes:

  • Low fluid intake
  • Hypercalciuria
  • Excessive intake of Vitamin D
  • Unhealthy lifestyle habits
  • High intake of sodium and protein

Symptoms:

  • Experiencing pain/burning sensation during urination
  • Traces of blood in the urine
  • Increased urge to urinate
  • Pain in the back and on the sides
  • Pain that radiates towards the groin

Diagnosis:
Your doctor will first assess your medical history and conduct a detailed physical examination. A urine test will be done to check for the presence of any suspectable mineral. Your doctors may ask you to go for blood tests to check for any other problem that may be held accountable for kidney stones. The size and location of the stones are determined with the help of a CT scan. 
 

Symptoms

Treatment

Ureteric Stones

The treatment approach varies depending upon the location and size of the stone.

Various treatment options available include:

  • Shock wave lithotripsy, that focuses shock waves on the stone in order to break it down
  • Ureteroscopy, which involves the removal of the stone using a ureteroscope
  • Percutaneous nephrolithotomy, which aims at removing large and irregular stones. 
     

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) More information

How should I prepare for the surgery?

To prepare for surgery, take good care of your health and try to learn as much as you can about the procedure. Planning ahead can help ensure you have a successful procedure and heal faster with a smooth recovery. 

Do I need to take any medicine before my surgery?

Depending upon the procedure and the patient's health, our surgeons may recommend some patients to medications. However, these medications are prescribed after a thorough evaluation of their medical history and overall health. Therefore, you need to inform the doctor about your allergies and previous medical conditions in advance

How long will it take to recover?

Recovery time after the surgery may vary from one patient to another. Usually, it depends on several factors, such as the patient's age, the type of surgery and the adversity of the problem that is being addressed during the surgery. Therefore, it is important to talk to your doctor about the same prior to your surgery.
