Could a broken up kidney stone clog more holes and make the situation worse?

Could a broken up kidney stone clog more holes and make the situation worse?

This can lead to another surgery if the stones are large or if there are many stones piled on top of each other in the ureter since they may not pass spontaneously. ...Read more

Is it possible for a kidney stone that breaks up to clog more holes and make the situation even more dangerous?

Is it possible for a kidney stone that breaks up to clog more holes and make the situation even more dangerous?

Not necessarily.: If a kidney stone breaks up, the smaller fragments are usually more likely to pass. The biggest worry is not that "more holes are clogged", but that the outflow tube of the kidney, called the ureter is blocked, preventing urine to pass. The fragments of very large stones can block the ureter, a condition called 'steinstrasse' after shockwave lithotripsy, limiting its use in very large stones. ...Read more

What is worse a kidney stone or a kidney infection?

What is worse a kidney stone or a kidney infection?

Comparative severity: Both are nobody's idea of fun. Kidney stones can result in secondary uti. Kidney infections often require long periods of antibiotic therapy and can potentially produce severe damage. Depending on the cause of stones they can represent disease elsewhere (i.e., hyperparathyroidism, etc.). Would not rate them since both are potentially severe. ...Read more
