Kidney Stone Plus...: Urinary tract infections lead to obstruction of urine flow which leads to stasis which in turn promotes infection (charcot's triad) urinary calculus is a kidney stone. Dehydration, metabolic disorders and anatomic abnormalities can also lead to kidney stone. Hydronephrosis is back up of urine into the kidney producing increased pressure. You need to have this adressed right away to prevent injury. ...Read more

I have few calculi in upper and mild calyx largest measuring 5mm at right kidney. Calculus measuring 4mm in left kidney. Along with left minimal hydroureteronephrosis with dilated entire left uretre.

I have few calculi in upper and mild calyx largest measuring 5mm at right kidney. Calculus measuring 4mm in left kidney. Along with left minimal hydroureteronephrosis with dilated entire left uretre.

See urologist: Your calculi seem not large enough for lithotripsy. These may pass on their own. The passage may be facilitated by placing a stent. It would be prudent to consult a urologist for proper treatment. Left untreated, even stones, this small, can damage the kidney.
Drink enough water every day so that your urine is mostly colorless. ...Read more

What is the difference between hydroureteronephrosis and hydronephrosis?

Somewhat technical: Hn applies to the kidney per se where hun implies distinction of the kidney and ureter (the tube carrying urine from kidney to bladder). Often they mean the same thing, unless the point of obstruction is before the ureter begins, eg, the ureteropelvic junction. ...Read more

Hi. Regarding my son 2months old has hydroureteronephrosis. What is the cause and management for this? Febrile uti is diagnosed

Hydronephrosis: Is a condition where the ureter does not drain urine in just one direction and there is back pressure on the kidney. This can lead to kidney infection and possible damage. Often children are put on low dose antibiotics to prevent infection. Ultimately it requires surgery ...Read more

My son 2 months old has hydroureteronephrosis in ultrasound. Diagnosed with fever uti. What is the best management for this?

Depends on grade?: I'm so sorry to see he is ill! The treatment depends on the severity of the hydronephrosis. The lower grades are treated with medical management, namely with a prophylactic antibiotic. Only the highest grade will typically need surgical treatment. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I have a calculus of size 4.1* 3.8 mm (+422Hu) in the left Vesicourteric junction. Please advise?

Urology visit: Usually a special type of doctor called a Urologist can help you with the kidney stones. There are specific procedures like lithotripsy- in water ablation by shockwaves of the kidney stones to help break them up. This is done under the directions of a Urologist.
Drinking more water is also helpful to passing them. ...Read more

I have a 4.5 mms calculus in the left vesico-ureteric junction. Please suggest the safest treatment, preferably non-invasive.

Pass it: The statistics say you have an 80% chance to pass this stone. Drink lots of fluids to generate a high urine output, soak in a hot bath, and take an Alpha blocker like flomax (tamsulosin). After that, the most reliable direct way to remove the stone is with ureteroscopy. This can be done on an outpatient basis and is very reliable. ...Read more

Treatment for RIGHT VESICOURETERIC JUNCTION CALCULUS MEASURING 5.3mm.

Supportive: There are many variables involved in the treatment of renal calculi or "kidney stones".

Generally, a stone the size of 5.3mm should pass spontaneously with time. Drink plenty of water and use pain medication as needed. Stones that do not passed can sometimes by treated with lithotripsy or ureteral stenting. ...Read more

I have a calculus of size 8*4 mm in the left pelvic ureter, about 2.5 cm from the UV junction. Is it possible to pass through urine?

Probably: As Urologist, we say 5 mm stones on the move will likely pass. 8mm will probably need help. Your Urologist may want to try Flomax (tamsulosin) for a week or so which relaxes the muscles. If the stone does not pass in 3-4 weeks... Best for cystoscopic removal... Laser, stone basket ETC. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with mild calyceal dilation in right kidney suggesting hydronephosis, a 4mm calculus at ureter bladder junction. Is this serious?

I have been diagnosed with mild calyceal dilation in right kidney suggesting hydronephosis, a 4mm calculus at ureter bladder junction. Is this serious?

Probably not: A Stone in the ureter can cause back pressure in the kidney which results in dilation of the collecting system. The kidney can tolerate this for relatively short periods of time however if this continues it can damage the kidney. I would suggest you consult a urologist. ...Read more

I suffering from kidney pain, due to 9mm stone in the right vesicouretric junction, is it possible to pass through medicines.

Probably not...: If the stone is at that site longer than 2 weeks, it would be very unlikely to pass a 9-mm stone by its own, except you had Hx of passing that size of stone from right side. So, watch it with care but accept intervention to remove it timely. Best wish... ...Read more

What is a punctate calculus in the lower pole of the kidney?

What is a punctate calculus in the lower pole of the kidney?

A tiny kidney stone: A punctate calculus refers to a very small kidney stone, generally 1-2 mm in size picked up on a CT scan as this is the most sensitive imaging study. A stone of this size should be passable if it decides to move down the ureter. I would recommend excellent fluid intake of 70-80 ounces daily and orange juice and lemonade daily. Your doctor should also monitor this stone periodically for growth. ...Read more

I have a calculus of 5mm in left kidney, what must be done to outlet it?

Kidney stone: Most kidney stones that are 4 mm or smaller can be passed spontaneously. Stones that are bigger than 4 mm are more difficult to be passed spontaneously. There is a progressive decrease in the spontaneous passage rate, which is unlikely with stones ≥10 mm in diameter. With a stone diameter between 4 and 6 mm, about 50 percent required intervention. Drink lots of water and discuss with ur urologist. ...Read more

I have ureteric calculus about 5.3mm. What does this mean and how it is cured?

Drink lots of fluid: Ureteral stones often pass spontaneously when <6mm, but not always. The amount of pain they cause when traveling from the kidney to the bladder can also vary quite a bit. You need to keep well hydrated wth lots of fluids. About 50% of first stone formers will form another stone within 5 years. If pains persist after several weeks--see a urologist. ...Read more

I have calculus in left kidney measuring 4.5mm what procedure I will do for cure?

Depends: 4.5 mm stone is at the upper limits of what may be passable through the ureter and into bladder. Usually < 5mm. Most urologists will give you a month trial to pass provided your kidney isn't swollen and functioning ok. He/she may also put you on something to help pass it. If becomes severely painful ESWL is the preferred choice if in kidney (shock wave). If moves, urologist may fetch. ...Read more

I have a 14mm renal calculus without hydnephrosis. Is this something that can pass on its own?

Difficult to guess: Renal calculus, or kidney stones, are typically treated with regards to their size, location, composition, and complications. Any stone over 10 mm is considered large and unlikely to pass on its own. These stones are usually treated with an intervention by a Urologist to help safely remove the stone and avoid associated complications. The specific approach should be decided between you and your MD ...Read more

Right mild hydronephrosis due to rght renal pevis calculus. Mild prostatomegaly. Small simple corticalcyst. My grandpas sonography results say dis. Help?

Seperate issues: These are three separate and unrelated issues. Prostatic enlargement is exceedingly common and octogenarians. A simple renal cyst is rarely a problem at any age. The non-painful kidney stone possibly could be addressed with minimally invasive procedures such as eswl. You should consult a urologist about the kidney stone. ...Read more

4 months ago, I had hydronephrosis with 9mm stone in urinary junction.?

Being followed?: Apparently, this 9-mm stone was at the very starting part of ureter and may act like a ball valve to cause intermittent symptomatic blockage & hydronephrosis. Have you had this stone followed properly and how has it been behaving? In general, the odd to pass a 4-mm stone is about 75-80% in 2 wks. But, a stone of > 4 mm may still pass spontaneously, & one of <4 mm may not always pass. So, ask doc.. ...Read more
