Master S.K., was referred to us with pain on right side of tummy and hematuria (blood in urine) on and off for last one month. Ultrasound scan showed a 1cm sized stone in the pelvis of right kidney. There was minimal hydronephrosis seen.
Since the size of stone was small, we planned the child planned for Extra-corporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL).
Under anesthesia, as a first step cystoscopy was done and a DJ stent (a small plastic pipe) was placed into kidney. This DJ stent allows the small stone fragments to be passed without much pain/ blockage
The child was placed on the ESWL table under sedation (sleep). The x-ray machine and ESWL machine was focused on the stone and lithotripsy started. The stone was seen to fragment completely within 30 minutes.
Child was sent home in the evening of procedure. A check Ultrasound and x-ray 2 weeks later showed complete clearance of stone fragments and the DJ stent was removed.
