What are Kidney Stones?

kidney stone is a solid mass consisting of a crystalline structure with millions of microscopic crystals. On the inside of the kidney, where urine exits the kidney tissue and is collected by the urinary collecting system, most kidney stones are formed. In certain cases, kidney stones might be as little as a tiny pebble or grain of sand, but in most cases, they are considerably bigger.

The kidneys are responsible for maintaining the body’s water, mineral and salt balance. This filtration procedure yields urine as its end product. It’s possible to form crystals from components like calcium and oxalate in urine when they’re overly concentrated in certain circumstances. Crystals in the urine from a mass known as a kidney stone when they stick together and form a lump. The one who treats kidney stones is known as a kidney stone specialist.

When to see a kidney stone specialist?

Kidney stones occur in around one in 10 persons, although many are so little that they don’t produce any symptoms. When they move, stones may be very uncomfortable. Urinary tract infections may be caused by large stones that get lodged in the ureter. You need to go to a kidney stone hospital and consult a specialist if you have any one of the following symptoms.

  • Acute or excruciating lower back discomfort
  • Agonising pain that radiates from your back to the front of your abdomen and even to your groyne and genitals
  • Blood in your urine
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Wanting to pass urine often or urgently
  • Feeling hot and sweating in general
  • Feeling restless and uncomfortable
  • Weariness
 If you detect blood in your urine, consult a kidney stone specialist without delay. The location of a stone, rather than its size, determines the intensity of your kidney stone discomfort.

Some kidney stone treatments in our hospital

Medications to dissolve uric acid stones may be prescribed by your doctor. These work to increase the alkalinity of your urine by altering its pH. (less acidic). A dipstick test will be used to check the pH of your urine, and you will have to adjust your dosage based on the results.

By altering the urine’s pH, these products provide assistance. It is estimated that one in five kidney stones will not dislodge without surgery. Depending on the size, nature, and location of your stone, your kidney stone specialist will choose the best course of action.

To see whether the stone has migrated, your doctor may recommend another X-ray or scan. You’ll be asked to provide a urine sample, and you’ll be given antibiotics if necessary.
  • Ureteroscopy (URS) with Laser Treatment: Ureteroscopy is a procedure that uses a ureteroscope, a tiny, flexible or stiff instrument, to view and cure stones. Once the stone is found, a ureteroscope is introduced into the bladder and up the ureter to take video images and perform tiny “working” channels. A laser fibre may then break apart the stone.
 
  • Ureteroscopy (URS) with Lithotripsy Treatment: A short, long tube with a light source and a camera at its tip is introduced into the urinary urethra and directed up the urinary system until the stones are detected, when the lithotripsy process is carried out. It is then common to use a grater or a wire basket to remove the broken bits from the pee, or leave them in the urine and let them flow out naturally.
 
  • RIRS with Laser Treatment: A fiber optic endoscope and a Holmium laser fiber to remove kidney stones are used. Using an endoscope, which is a thin, flexible tube, a doctor may access the bladder via the urethra and then to the kidney’s filtration region. Following this, the endoscope will find stones and either crush them with a laser or manually remove them with forceps, depending on the procedure.
 
  • Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL): An incision is made in your back, and a hollow tube is inserted into the kidney to reach the stone-filled portion of your organ, which is then removed. The stones are either taken whole or broken up into smaller pieces and then removed with the use of a stiff metal telescope.

8. Do kidney stones continue to grow?
Calcium, oxalate, and uric acid are some of the ions and minerals that may build up in the kidney's funnelling section and cause kidney stones. Stones may continue to develop in size and "fall out" of the kidneys if the sediment isn't flushed out of the body with the urine.
9. What will a urologist do for kidney stones?
The kidney stone may be removed or broken into little pieces by a urologist using the following treatments: shock-wave lithotripsy. If the kidney stone is too large, the doctor may employ shock wave lithotripsy to break it into smaller pieces. Your urinary system then removes the tiny fragments of kidney stone.

Urinalysis is a procedure in which a medical practitioner examines a sample of your urine. At a doctor's office or at a lab, a medical expert will take a urine sample for testing. A urine analysis may reveal whether you have blood or minerals in your urine that might develop kidney stones.
