What Is Urinary Stone or Kidney Stone?

The urinary system consist of kidney, ureter and bladder (KUB). Stone is generally formed in kidney by aggregation of small crystals in kidney PCS and from there may migrate in ureter or bladder. Kidney stones are abnormal, hard, chemical deposits that form inside the kidneys. This condition is called as nephrolithiasis or urolithiasis. However, the deposits are at time much larger than the size of a pea, a marble or even larger. Some of these larger stones are too big to be flushed from the kidney.

What are the different types of Kidney stones?

There are different kinds of kidney stones that form because of a varied reaons. Thereforem they have been identified into four different groups and families, based on their chemical composition.

  • Calcium oxalate stones – These stones account for most kidney stones. Several factors increase the risk of calcium oxalate stone formation in the kidney.
  • Uric acid stones – Uric acid stones form because of an abnormally high concentration of uric acid in the urine. They are more likely to occur in people who have gout because of an over production of uric acid. Gout is a disorder in which uric acid builds up in the blood and gets deposited in joints.
  • Cystine stones – These rare stones are the least common type of kidney stones. They are composed of the amino acid cystine. Cystine is a building block of proteins. Cystine stones are caused by an inherited defect.

Common symptoms of kidney stones involve:

  • Severe pain in the back or side
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Blood in the urine (urine may look pink, red, or brown)

  • A stronger urge to urinate
  • A burning sensation while urinating

  • Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy- Shock waves are applied externally to break the kidney stones into smaller fragments. The fragments are then swept away in the urine stream.
  • Percutaneous ultrasonic lithotripsy – A narrow, tube-like instrument is passed through a small incision in the back of the kidney. There, ultrasound breaks up the kidney stones. The stone fragments are then removed.
  • Laser lithotripsy – A laser breaks up stones in the ureter. The stones then passes on its own.
