Of late, urologists have noticed a rise in kidney stone sufferers. This could either be connected to a huge change seen in people’s choice of foods eaten, leaning more towards unhealthy, nutrition lacking, highly processed fast foods; or to the advance in diagnosing techniques that increases the ability to detect stones in a brief period of time.
Kidney stones develop when the amount of mineral matters and salts in urine is greater than required. These are crystal forming substance, which when not flushed out of the system in a proper manner end up to form a solid mass. Generally, tiny crystals formed are eliminated out through urine spontaneously with the person remaining unaware of its existence. Though they are not likely known to cause any physical damage, the size of the stones formed does matter. As earlier stated, small stones are capable of being voided on their own, it is the larger stone that can bring about various other unfavorable kidney diseases. Some tiny stones may at times adhere to the walls of the kidney and remain there for a long time. Eventually they grow in size, large enough to occupy the entire kidney. This will obviously interfere with proper urine production. Or in some cases, stones that travel from the kidney to the ureters so as to deposit themselves into the urinary bladder, may lodge themselves in the ureters and grow big in size over time. In such a situation, urine flow is blocked causing incomplete urine voiding. Accumulation of urine will again only encourage more stones to develop as well as may lead to urinary tract infections.
While it is understood that destroying further growth of tiny stones is of utmost importance, detecting asymptomatic kidney stones cannot be easily done. It becomes evident only when they grow large enough to cause pain through its every movement made in the urinary tract while attempting to move out of the body.
Kidney stones are of various kinds, each one’s composition different from another and are normally made from uric acid, calcium, oxalates, phosphates, and in very rare cases – cystine. In order to prevent further growth of tiny stones formed, it is vital to flush the existing stones out of the system. This is possible by drinking plenty of water. When the urinary tract is supplied with sufficient water and fluids, it is constantly flushing out germs and waste material from the system, providing very little chance for crystals to get formed in the first place.
However, for those stones that have already grown moderate in size, and have been detected, then performing extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy procedure will assist in fragmenting the pieces further down to be successfully expelled from the body. A lithotripter machine generates shock waves and passes it through the person’s body, aiming the high energy waves on the stones to break them into smaller pieces. Even though this is a non-invasive procedure, it will be conducted under general anesthesia, but no overnight stay in hospital will be required. Once it is done, the patient will be asked to go home and wait for the stones to pass out spontaneously. It is normal to note blood in urine while voiding.
Several more attempts at shock wave lithotripsy may be required if the stone is very large. In such a situation, ureteral stents will be left in place until the fragmented stones void out.
