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.

Diagnosis & Treatment

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. 

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.
