How are bladder stones diagnosed?

Based on the signs and symptoms, your urologist will ask you to get a few investigations to detect a bladder stone, including:

  • X-ray KUB – A basic investigation that can help diagnose a bladder stone.
  • Ultrasound – This can tell us about the presence of stone as well as the size of the prostate and the health of the kidney.
  • NCCT KUB - This is the investigation of choice for detecting stones. It tells us the exact size and location of not only bladder stones but also a stone in the kidney and the hardness of stone can be judged based on Hounsfield units.
  • Uroflowmetry - To rule out narrowing of urine passage i.e. structure urethra before planning surgery of bladder stones.
  • Urine routine/microscopy and urine culture - This test is a must to rule out infection before planning any surgical intervention for the treatment of bladder stones.
How are bladder stones treated?

These are various methods to treat bladder stones depending upon the size of the stone and the age of the patient.

• TRANSURETHRAL CYSTOLITHOCAPAXY

In this method, a small tube with a camera at one end a cystoscope is introduced from the urine passage into the bladder. The stone is visualized and broken into smaller fragments with the help of laser or pneumatic lithoclast. These small fragments are then removed from the bladder.

• PERCUTANEOUS CYSTOLITHOTOMY PCCL

Under endoscopic guidance, transurethral a small incision is made (around 1-2cm) in the lower abdominal wall in the region of the bladder. Using another telescope called nephoscopy we then enter the bladder to visualize the stone, break them into smaller pieces and then remove them. This is usually done for very large stones.

• OPEN CYSTOLITHOTOMY

In cases of small children to prevent damage to their urine tube (urethra) and in old patients with very large prostates, an open surgical method is used to remove the stones. In this method, a small incision is made through the skin and onto the bladder. The stone is removed and the bladder is then stitched back.

What to expect in the post-operative period?
  • Post-surgery a catheter is inserted into the bladder which usually remains for 24 to 48 hrs.
  • Some patients may notice a light pink-colored urine for a few days post-surgery. They should not get alarmed at this.
  • An antibiotic is given for 5-7 days post-surgery to prevent infections.
  • After removal of the catheter patient may experience a little frequency of urination and burning while passing urine for a few days.
