By | February 21, 2020

A 45 years old patient was having 856 kidney stones, the surgery was carried out and all the stones were thrown out from the kidney. Doctors at the Shalimar Bagh Fortis Hospital have successfully removed 856 stones. This has been achieved through the acceptance of minimally invasive procedures.

After the checkup of a patient, it was found that they had the right pelvic stone. Doctors decided to break the stone by a procedure called percutaneous Nephrolithotomy, which occurs when stones cannot be transmitted from the body by themselves. All the pillars were separated with a single 1 cm resection from the left kidney and urinary tract/pelvis.

Patient Munesh Kumar Gupta had been diagnosed with blood in his urine at Fortis Hospital, Shalimar Bagh. The Kidney Stone Surgery in India was carried on this patient at Fortis Hospital. There were no other symptoms similar to kidney stones. The ultrasound revealed that two large stones were present in the kidney. The doctors were however shocked during the surgery, as 856 stones were located in the left kidney and urinary tract. Generally, Ureteroscopy would remove the ureteric stones but this patient had a stone in the pelvis. It involves a procedure comprising 15 days of hospitalization, with a high risk of incisional hernia. Thus percutaneous Nephrolithotomy was necessary, the doctor said.

On further examination, it was discovered that swelling existed in the left kidney and the functioning of the kidney was affected. After extracting the stones a temporary tube was inserted in the left ureter to bypass the ureteric obstruction. The patient was subsequently scheduled to rectify the obstruction with minimally invasive procedure laser Endopyelotomy for second-stage surgery.

“There was a history of stone in the left kidney and the first surgery took place in 2007,   and there were no clear signs of kidney stones at this time, but only two days before the operation it started passing blood through urine, said by Dr. Rajinder Yadav, Director, and Department of Urology Kidney Transplant.

Two stones, each approximately 33 millimeters in height, were detected in the ultrasound. 856 stones in the left kidney and urinary tract were discovered as the procedure proceeded. The surgery was done using methods that had been minimally invasive, which led to reduced discomfort and blood loss for over two hours. The next day after the operation, the patient was released. Kidney Stone Surgery in India help the patient to remove 856 stones from the left kidney and the surgery was successful.

Kidney work as a blood recycling system. Kidney stones are hard deposits of minerals and salts within the kidney that concentrate the urine and cause minerals to crystallize and bind together. The chance for stones is minimized by drinking a lot of fluids.
