Can kidney stone lithotripsy cause seizures?

Not typically. There is nothing inherent to this procedure which would lower a persons threshold for seizure. Individuals at risk for seizure should know that these procedures often require anesthesia and the use of those medications may change the effectiveness of anti-seizure medications. This can be discussed with the anesthesia team prior to scheduling a procedure.

Kidney disease. You need to see the urologist who placed the stent to get further information as soon as possible.
