Treatment procedure ?
By conducting tests like CT scan, X-rays, ultrasound, and urinalysis doctors confirm the presence of kidney stone. Sometimes blood tests are conducted for finding the minerals which help in the formation of stones.
- Medication : Pills like alpha blockers helps to widen the wall of the ureter so the stone can pass through it. Later medicines are given for preventing the formation of new stones.
- Shock Wave Therapy : Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy or shock wave therapy is the most common method to cure this. In this high-intensity shock waves are used to break the stone into little pieces. Later it passes through the urinary tract.
- Ureteroscopy: If the stone is situated near the bladder , a doctor inserts a small tube through the urinary tract. Then the stone is crushed and removed through the tube.
