Recently, more and more people are facing the development of urolithiasis. This ailment is very common due to the ease of appearance — it can be caused by a metabolic disorder and malnutrition.
It is important to pay attention to pain signals. At first it may seem that nothing serious is happening, but in neglected cases, kidney colic is possible, accompanied by severe pains.
Diagnosis can be detected using ultrasound diagnostics.
If the disease is not treated, then there may be problems with urination, and in the future, and the development of renal failure.
Urolithiasis can be treated in two ways:
Drug treatment will give results only if the disease is at an early stage. If there are already formed stones in the urinary tract, then surgical intervention cannot be avoided.
There are two ways to perform the operation:
- Ureterolithotomy or pyelolithotomy. This is a traditional surgical procedure with a cut at the anterior abdominal wall or at the waist. The place depends on the location of the stones. This method is quite traumatic, after surgery the patient can stay in hospital for up to 10 days. Work capacity is also limited (up to 30 days).
- Laparoscopic lithotomy. Gentle mode of surgical intervention. It is performed with a laparoscope. The surgeon makes only a few small incisions in the anterior abdominal wall. Thus, less blood loss, less traumatized tissue, shorter recovery period (in hospital you need to stay about three days), the patient quickly returns to the usual life (from seven days).
The Center of Progressive Medicine «AVICENNA MED» always keeps pace with the times and offers the most modern medical technologies.
To remove stones in the bladder, ureter and kidneys, the center’s doctors also use contact laser lithotripsy. The undeniable advantage of the method is that no cuts are made. A high-precision endoscope and laser are inserted into the patient’s body through physiological holes. Laser breaks large stones into parts that are extracted with equipment.
This is a safe and very gentle technique. There is no need to make cuts, there is no blood loss, a short recovery period (stay in the hospital — only 1-2 days, return to active life after 3-4 days) and in principle invaluable psychological comfort of the patient.
