Diagnosis and Testing for Kidney Stones
Blood tests may detect the presence of too much calcium or uric acid in your blood. It assists physicians in determining the health of your kidney.
Urine Testing: Your doctor may recommend that you undergo two urine collections on two consecutive days to determine the quantity of stone-forming minerals in your urine.
Simple abdominal X-rays, CT Scan, and ultrasound may be used to detect the existence of kidney stones in your urinary system. Intravenous urography is a sophisticated test in which a dye is injected into an arm vein and x-rays or CT images are acquired while the dye travels through the kidney and bladder.
Kidney Stones Treatment in Vadodara
Ureteroscopy: The urologist inserts a tiny, illuminated tube called a ureteroscope with a camera at the tip up the urethra — the tube that discharges urine from the bladder and outside of the body — during this minimally invasive procedure. Once the scope is put into the ureter, a small wire basket is passed into the ureter to draw out the stone. For bigger stones or stones that have become lodged in the ureter, the surgeon may use a small laser device sent via the scope to break the stone down so that the pieces may pass on their own.
Nephrolithotomy (percutaneous nephrolithotomy) or nephrolithotripsy (nephrolithotripsy): Urologists must make a small incision in the patient’s back to establish a pathway to the kidney, through which they insert a nephroscope or a tube with a camera on the tip. Using this scope, surgeons may insert surgical equipment into the kidney. Nephrolithotomy is a treatment in which surgeons utilize these instruments to remove a kidney stone. The treatment is known as nephrolithotripsy if they employ these instruments to break up the stone initially.
Robotic-assisted laparoscopic nephrolithotomy: If the stone is large, robotic-assisted laparoscopic nephrolithotomy to remove it. Surgeons use small incisions in the abdomen to introduce a scope and small surgical equipment into the kidney to access and open it up to collect the stone. The surgeon uses a computer console in the surgery room to control the surgical equipment. robotic surgery causes less scarring and bleeding than open surgery, which needs a wider incision.
