Non Obstructing Nephrolithiasis
Likely not serious: Punctate renal stones almost always pass without problems. ...Read more
Solutes precipitate and combine to form stones formed of calcium oxalate usually around a nidus of uric acid. Other solutes that form stones are ca and mg phosphates, cystine, and uric acid staghorn calculi form in the presence of chronic urinary tract infections. Stones can be painful, may require ...Read more
1.1cm: Is a relatively large stone, and may lead to problems in the future, even though now it is non-obstructing. Discuss the risks/benefits with your Urologist in an informed decision making conversation/visit and decide the best option for your specific case. Good luck. ...Read more
Probably nothing: Stones in the kidneys are punctate hyperechogenicity shadowing. ...Read more
Multiple calcified densities at pelvis could represent phleboliths versus distal uretral lithiasis?
Kidney Stones: The pain that occurs as a result of kidney stones comes from one thing and that is obstruction. So, the answer to your question is no. Non-obstructing kidney stones can not be felt at all. However, a stone can sometimes move in and out of an obstructing position. Imaging studies may catch a previously obstructing stone when it is no longer causing blockage (obstruction). ...Read more
Treatment for multiple calcified densities at pelvis could represent phleboliths versus distal uretral lithiasis?
Treatment different: Phleboliths are calcified small veins that are not usually clinically important. There usually is no treatment unless associated with hemangiomas, usually in children. Calculus or stone in ureter is referred to ureterolithiasis. This can cause pain and obstruction to the ureter. The stone either passes on its own, or sometimes has instrumentation by urologist. ...Read more
had episode of gross hematuria. no infection. CT scan shows 2 non obstructing stones. Could stones have caused the hematuria?
Possible but: Are the2 stones in the kidney area or the ureter?What size?GROSS hematuria from small non obstructing stone would be quite unusual.In this context, cystoscopy to rule out bladder tumor and contrast CT-IVP with delayed films to rule out transitional cell tmr(the lining of the urinary tract)of a renal pelvis or ureter is a prudent diagnostic approach.The stones should be followed.Hope all turns well ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers
Yes, it can be but..: The presence of kidney stones has been known to be one of the causes for painless microhematuria, and at times, urinalysis (some 5% of times) may be normal even while stone is moving through the ureter with pain. But painless macroscopic hematuria could mean you have seen gross bloody urine with no pain as described; if so, you should be evaluated for painless gross heamturia ASAP. Bladder tumor? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
-mild hydronephrosis, right; up to mid-ureter
-consider possible partially obstucting lucent ureterolithiasis.
What it means?
Stones: You probably have a stone obstructing your right kidney's urine outflow tract that has caused the tract to become enlarged (hydronephrosis). Lucent just implies that the stone is not visible on xray or ultrasound. A ct scan should still be able to pick it up though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Impression = minimal lelft hydronephrosis no ureter dilatation A 5MM nonobstructing left renal calculas bladder shows norma out l?
Here are some…: Minimal hydronephrosis could be just a radiologist's subjective impression, but may not be related with a 5-mm non-obstructing stone. However, the key point still lies on how to manage this 5-mm stone, which can be deduced by analyzing the past history of stone activity and balancing medical necessity and professional possibilities. So, consult urologist timely. ...Read more
Very curable: Most bladder stones can be broken up into little pieces or dust by endoscopic laser or lithoclast lithotripsy (breaking up stone by laser or "jackhammer" type instrument passed via cystoscope). Broken pieces or "dust" can be irrigated, juctioned out or remaining small pieces grasped. Very large stones (> than an egg) are sometimes best removed by open surgery. Patient cured then prevent new ones. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

OBSTRUCTIVE HYDROURETERONEPHROSIS ON RIGHT SECONDARY TO A DISTAL URETERAL STONE(7mm). Kidney is inflamed. What are my options?
Subtle hyperechoic foci in both kidneys, probably renal calculi. Left renal cyst measured 17mm. There is no hydronephrosis or other masses. What does this kidney ultrasound mean?
no cancer: Renal cysts are very common and nothing to worry about. The subtle hyperechoic foci probably represent tiny kidney stones which may grow over time. No hydronephrosis means no evidence of something obstructing the flow of urine to your bladder. No masses means just that. Please see your doctor to review this report as well as current laboratory tests of your kidney function. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Recent cat scan showed prominence of the right renal pelvis without urethral dilates or calculus suggests an incomplete upj obstruction. ?
Several causes: Prominence of renal pelvis can be caused by stasis in capacious renal pelvis, extrarenal pelvis congenital normal variation, and sometimes ureteropelvic obstruction.Usually a nuclear renal scan with Tc99m DTPA or MAG3 can be used to differentiate stasis from true or significant obstruction. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
