What are kidney stones/renal stones?

Kidney stones, also known as renal calculi, are hard deposits of minerals and salts that form inside the kidneys. They can vary in size, ranging from tiny particles to larger stones that can be several centimeters in diameter.

Causes of kidney stones

Kidney stones can develop when certain substances in the urine, such as calcium, oxalate, and uric acid, become highly concentrated and form crystals. These crystals can then join together to form stones over time. They can also occur if there is a risk of

  1. Dehydration
  2. Dietary changes
  3. Family history
  4. Obesity 
  5. Medical conditions like urine infections and hyperparathyroidism

Symptoms of kidney stones

Kidney stone removal methods, treatments, and surgeries

  1. Fluid Intake: Increasing fluid intake, particularly water, is often the first step in managing kidney stones. Drinking plenty of fluids helps flush out the urinary system and can help smaller stones pass more easily.
  2. Pain Management: Severe pain associated with kidney stones may require pain medication, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen or prescription pain relievers.
  3. Medications: Certain medications may be prescribed to help facilitate the passage of kidney stones or to prevent the formation of new stones. These may include alpha-blockers to relax the muscles in the ureter, which can help the stone pass more easily, or medications to reduce the levels of certain substances in the urine that contribute to stone formation.
  4. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL): ESWL is a non-invasive procedure that uses shock waves to break kidney stones into smaller pieces, making them easier to pass through the urinary tract. This procedure is typically used for smaller stones located in the kidney or upper urinary tract.
  5. Ureteroscopy (URS): URS involves passing a thin, flexible scope (ureteroscope) through the urethra and bladder to access the ureter and kidney. Once the stone is located, it can be fragmented using a laser or other tools, and the smaller pieces can be removed or allowed to pass naturally.
  6. Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL): PCNL is a minimally invasive procedure used to remove larger kidney stones or stones located in the kidney’s inner part. During the procedure, a small incision is made in the back, and a nephroscope is inserted to locate and remove the stones.
  7. Surgery: In some cases, particularly if other treatments are unsuccessful or if there are complications such as severe blockage or infection, surgery may be necessary to remove the kidney stones. This may involve open surgery (rarely performed) or minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopic surgery.
