Hello, I have got renal stones. I am 24 years old. Recently my doc told me this. What are the management methods for renal stone? Please leave your comments on this.
@abhideep Management of renal stones depend upon the stone type and etiology. There could be different kind of stores like calcium oxalate calcium phosphate magnesium ammonium phosphate, uric acid or cysteine. Primary good hydration is to be maintained to encourage diuresis if not causing any issue incidental stones can be ignored or monitor with x-ray. After renal or ureteric stone it would be unusual to have urgent surgery and associated renal infection is there this would mean a nephrostomy or a ureteral stent to drain and extracted kidney. Treatment would vary according to the size or position of the stone if the stone is small and in lower ureter medical expulsive therapy is used. Ureteroscopy is the most frequently used surgical treatment for stones in ureter that have not passed or are unlikely to pass by themselves. The stones can be broken up of an extent is left in the ureter at the end of ureteroscopy necessitating their removal at a later stage. Sometime lithotripsy is used for ureteral stone.
