Kidney Stones - When To Opt For Surgery?

Kidneys stones are a common condition. They are quite different from Gallstones which are formed in the Gall bladder. Gall stones are from bile concentration in the gall bladder. "Silent" Gallstones which are detected on an ultrasound done for another cause, can be left alone.

However, silent kidney stones should never be left alone. These can silently grow to a large size and cause kidney failure without the patient ever experiencing pain. Every patient of stone needs to be evaluated by blood tests, ultrasound and possibly CT-scan. Small stones 5 mm or less may pass out naturally, but should be monitored on Ultrasound to confirm clearance. Larger stones are cleared by a variety of Endoscopic Operations like Ureterorenorenoscopy, PCNL or ESWL. These need 1-2 days hospitalisation and have quick recovery. The stone removed should be analysed for contents so that appropriate preventive measure in diet and medicines can be started as soon as possible.

Gallstone Surgery Procedure - Things You Need To Know!

These Gallstones don’t cause any problems in most cases. But prompt treatment is required if stones block ducts and cause infections and inflammation in the pancreas. This may lead to the removal of the gallbladder through a surgery, known as cholecystectomy, which further includes techniques such as laparoscopic (keyhole) cholecystectomy or open surgery. Although it is a less vital organ, the body can cope up even after removal.

Procedure of surgery:

  1. The surgery involves removal of gallbladder and gallstones through several incisions in the abdomen. In order to see clearly, the surgeon inflates the abdomen with air or carbon dioxide.
  2. A lighted scope attached to a video camera is inserted into one incision near the belly button. The video monitor is used as a guide for inserting other surgical instruments into the other incisions to remove the gallbladder.
  3. Intraoperative cholangiography is the X-ray procedure which shows the anatomy of bile ducts. This is done before the surgeon removes the gallbladder.
  4. Bile flows from the liver through the common bile duct after the surgery into the small intestine. As the gallbladder has been removed, the gallbladder can no longer store bile between meals but has no effect or little effect on digestion.
  5. In case of open surgery, the surgeon reaches the gallbladder through a large, single incision in the abdominal wall.

Complications after gallbladder surgery:

This surgery carries some degree of risk like any other surgery. Complications such as internal bleeding, infection, injury to nearby digestive organs, injury to the bile duct and injury to blood vessels.

Types of gallstones:

There are three main types of gallstones. They are

  1. Mixed stones: They are made up of cholesterol and salts. They tend to develop in batches.
  2. Cholesterol stones: Mainly made of cholesterol, which is crucial to many metabolic processes. They can grow large enough to block the bile ducts.
  3. Pigment stones: The colour of bile is greenish-brown, due to some particular pigments.

Medical factors to consider before cholecystectomy:

The most important factor is a consideration of your medical history. This is because the pre-existing conditions influence decisions on surgery and anaesthetic and information about any bad reactions or side effects from any medications would be helpful for surgery.

Self-care after the surgery:

Taking rest is the most important thing after surgery. Avoid things such as heavy lifting and physical exertion. The usual recovery period after the surgery is one week.

Gall bladder surgery - Know Its Risks!

Surgery using a laparoscope is the most common way to remove the gallbladder. A laparoscope is a thin, lighted tube that lets the doctor see inside our belly. It is a minimally invasive surgery in which small incisions and specialized tools are used to remove a diseased or infected gallbladder.

The gall bladder is a small organ that sits right under the liver and is credited with bile storage, which can help the body in breaking down various kinds of fats that enter it. So, what all do you need to know about this operation? Read this list.

Reasons for Gall Bladder Operation: The gall bladder is not a very efficient organ. It can lead to blockages and choking as the bile it stores can become very thick and difficult to handle. Also, this bile can start to harbour deposits that are hard ball like substances, usually known as gall bladder stones. The size of these stones can vary from the size of a grain to the size of a golf ball. 

Further, these gall bladder stones can cause infections which can lead to symptoms like nausea, vomiting, bloating and more. Another reason can also be the gall bladder disease known as chloelithiasis, which can cause abdominal pain. Inflammation in the pancreas, also known as pancreatitis, can lead to gall bladder open removal surgery.

Risk: While the gall bladder removal surgery is usually considered a safe one, with little or no complications, there are risks attached to this surgery too. These include sudden and excessive bleeding and the creation of blood clots, allergic reactions to the drugs used as well as anaesthesia, blood vessel damage, accelerated heart rate which leads to an increased risk of contracting a heart attack or heart disease, infections, inflammation or swelling in the pancreas, and injuries caused to the bile duct during surgery.

You might also need this type of surgery if you have the following:

1. biliary dyskinesia, which occurs when the gallbladder doesn't fill or empty correctly due to a defect
2. choledocholithiasis, which occurs when gallstones move to the bile duct and potentially cause a blockage that prevents the gallbladder from draining
3. cholecystitis, which is an inflammation of the gallbladder
4. pancreatitis, which is an inflammation of the pancreas

Laparoscopic surgery is preferred over open cholecystectomy surgery because the smaller incisions that are made reduce your risk of infection, bleeding, and recovery time.

Preparation: To prepare for your gall bladder removal surgery, the doctor may ask you to have a prescription fluid so that your bowels are flushed clean. You may also be asked to fast for at least six hours before the surgery so that there is no hindrance to the same. Also, the use of an antibacterial soap to bathe is usually prescribed so that the risk of contracting infections decreases.

While this surgery can be a simple one, you will have to take due care after the surgery to ensure that the recovery is fast and virtually pain free.

Gallstones in Women - How To Deal With It?

Gallstones are bits of solid material that may be formed in the gall bladder. The gallbladder is a little organ located under the liver. You won't not know you have them until they've block your bile duct, causing pain that will need immediate medical intervention, and even hospitalisation in some cases.They may comprise of cholesterol, salt, or bilirubin, which consists of red platelets. Gallstones vary in size. They can be as little as a grain of sand or as even the size of an apricot in many cases.

Women are more likely to develop gallstones than men. Read on to know more:

Causes: There are a number of causes for this condition, especially in women. These causes are as follows:

  1. Intake of anti-conception medication pills, hormone trade treatment for menopause side effects, or pregnancy
  2. Fasting
  3. Malfunctioning of the gall bladder
  4. High cholesterol levels
  5. Gallstones may be created when there is excessive amount of cholesterol in the bile discharged by the liver. This bile normally separates the cholesterol and helps in the normal functioning of the liver and other digestive organs of the body.
  6. Bilirubin: Bilirubin is a substance created when your liver wrecks old red platelets. A few conditions, like cirrhosis of the liver and certain blood issues causes the liver to create more bilirubin than it ought to. This can lead to complicated conditions like gallstones.
  7. Bile: Your gallbladder needs to exhaust bile to be sound. In the event that it discharges its bile content, the bile turns out to be excessively thick which causes stones to shape.
  8. Weight: Being overweight or underweight can also cause a malfunction which can lead to the appearance of such stones. The diet also has a bearing in such cases.

Symptoms:

  1. Fever
  2. A yellowish tint in your skin or eyes, which can demonstrate jaundice
  3. Sickness or retching
  4. Clay coloured stools
  5. Pain in the right upper quadrant of your stomach area
  6. Nausea
  7. Vomiting
  8. Other digestive issues

Treatment:

Numerous individuals with gallstones may be asked to go through surgery to remove the gallbladder. These include the following:

  1. Laparoscopic cholecystectomyThe specialist passes instruments, a light, and a camera through a few little cuts in the midsection.
  2. Open cholecystectomy: The specialist makes bigger cuts in the belly to expel the gallbladder. You may have to spend a couple days in the hospital after the operation.
  3. Without getting operated: If you have a mild condition and your specialist feels you shouldn't have an operation, he may recommend medicines like chenodiol, ursodiol, or both. These medications work by dissolving cholesterol stones. One may experience mild loose motions as a side effect.

Laparoscopic Gallbladder Removal Surgery - What Should You Know?

Laparoscopic Gallbladder Removal Surgery - What Should You Know?

What is Laparoscopic Gallbladder Removal Surgery (Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy)?

Gallbladder removal is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures. Gallbladder removal surgery is usually performed with minimally invasive techniques and the medical name for this procedure is Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy or Laparoscopic Gallbladder Removal.

The gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ that rests beneath the right side of the liver. Its main purpose is to collect and concentrate a digestive liquid (bile) produced by the liver. Bile is released from the gallbladder after eating, aiding digestion. Bile travels through narrow tubular channels (bile ducts) into the small intestine. Removal of the gallbladder is not associated with any impairment of digestion in most people.

What Causes Gallbladder Problems?

Gallbladder problems are usually caused by the presence of gallstones which are usually small and hard, consisting primarily of cholesterol and bile salts that form in the gallbladder or in the bile duct.

It is uncertain why some people form gallstones but risk factors include being female, prior pregnancy, age over 40 years and being overweight. Gallstones are also more common as you get older and some people may have a family history of gallstones. There is no known means to prevent gallstones.

These stones may block the flow of bile out of the gallbladder, causing it to swell and resulting in sharp abdominal painvomitingindigestion and, occasionally, fever. If the gallstone blocks the common bile duct, jaundice (a yellowing of the skin) can occur.

Diagnosing 

  1. Ultrasound is most commonly used to find gallstones.
  2. In a few more complex cases, other X-ray test such as a CT scan or a gallbladder nuclear medicine scan may be used to evaluate gallbladder disease.

Gallstones do not go away on their own. Some can be temporarily managed by making dietary adjustments, such as reducing fat intake. This treatment has a low, short-term success rate. Symptoms will eventually continue unless the gallbladder is removed. Treatments to break up or dissolve gallstones are largely unsuccessful.

Surgical removal of the gallbladder is the time-honored and safest treatment of gallbladder disease.

What are the Advantages of Performing Laparoscopic Gallbladder Removal?

  1. Rather than a five to seven inch incision, the operation requires only four small openings in the abdomen.
  2. Patients usually have minimal post-operative pain.
  3. Patients usually experience faster recovery than open gallbladder surgery patients.
  4. Most patients go home the same day of the surgery and enjoy a quicker return to normal activities.

Are you a Candidate?

Although there are many advantages to laparoscopic gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy), the procedure may not be appropriate for some patients who have severe complicated gallbladder disease or previous upper abdominal surgery. A thorough medical evaluation by your personal physician, in consultation with a surgeon trained in laparoscopy, can determine if laparoscopic gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy) is an appropriate procedure for you.

Laparoscopy - How Is It Beneficial In Gallstone Surgery?

Laparoscopy - How Is It Beneficial In Gallstone Surgery?

Gallstones are a medical condition in which the formation of stones takes place in the bile duct or the gallbladder. One of the major factors responsible for the formation of gallstones is an elevated excretion of cholesterol by the liver, most of which remains undissolved by the bile. The undissolved cholesterol may crystallize resulting in the formation of gallstones (yellow cholesterol stones, a condition termed as Cholesterol Gallstones). In some cases, increased level of bilirubin in the bile (triggered by a liver problem, liver damage or other medical conditions), which doesn't undergo a breakdown, may lead to stone formation (known as Pigment Gallstones). Here, the stones appear black or dark brown in color.

Gallstones are common among women, especially those who are 40 years and more. Obesitydiabetes, liver disorders, unhealthy diet (rich in fats and cholesterol), certain medications (those containing estrogen) can also trigger the formation of gallstones. Gallstones left untreated and unattended can give rise to serious complications such as blockage of the pancreatic duct (resulting in Pancreatitis) or the bile duct. There may also be inflammation of the gallbladder. In extreme cases, a person may even suffer from something as serious as Gallbladder Cancer.

Laparoscopy to remove the gallstones

  • While a lot of treatments and medications are available to deal with gallstones, most people opt for Laparoscopy. What makes laparoscopic surgery superior to the other open surgeries is that it is minimally invasive with a better and quick recovery. Also termed as Cholecystectomy, the laparoscopic surgery for the removal of gallstones as well as the gallbladder involves the following steps.
  • General anesthesia is given to the patients before the surgery.
  • The surgeon makes 3-4 small incisions in the abdomen.
  • The surgeon then inflates the stomach to get a better view of the internal organs (including the organs affected). Carbon dioxide gas is passed into the stomach to inflate it.
  • In the next step, the surgeon carefully inserts a laparoscope (a narrow and long tube that comes with a high-density light and a front camera with a high-resolution) through one of the incisions (usually the one close to the belly button) to aid in the surgery.
  • Nex,t the surgeon inserts the surgical instruments needed to get the gallstones and the gallbladder removed.
  • Before the surgical removal of the gallstones and the gallbladder, an important X-ray of the bile duct called the Intraoperative Cholangiography (shows the bile duct anatomy) is done.
  • With the gallbladder and the stones removed, the laparoscope and the surgical instruments are then removed and the incisions stitched carefully.
  • The gallbladder is known to store the bile pigment. With the removal of the gallbladder, there is a small rearrangement. The bile pigments now move from the liver into the small intestine via the bile duct.
  • The patients may require spending 1-2 days in the hospital. The patient is expected to be in a better shape (less discomfort) within 2-3 weeks.
  • In case complications arise during the surgery, the surgeon may have to switch onto an open surgery. 

Keep an Eye on Your Weight as It May Increase the Risk of Gallstones

Keep an Eye on Your Weight as It May Increase the Risk of Gallstones

Gallstones are actually hard deposits or lumps that are formed in gallbladder. Gallbladder is a pear shaped, sac-like structure that is located in the upper right part of the abdomen that stores bile. Many people have gallstones present in their bladder but they never know it. This can be an alarming situation for people who have it.

What Causes Gallstones?

There may be several reasons, including:

  1. Your genes
  2. Your weight
  3. Problems with your gallbladder
  4. Diet
  5. Bile can be part of the problem. Your body needs bile, but if it has too much cholesterol in it, that makes gallstones more likely.
  6. It can also happen if your gallbladder can’t empty properly.

Who Is at Risk for Gallstones?
While your body produces cholesterol naturally, you can also take in excess cholesterol through your diet. Many risk factors for gallstones are related to diet. These include:

  1. being overweight or obese
  2. eating a diet that’s high in fat or cholesterol
  3. rapid weight loss within a short period of time
  4. eating diet that’s low in fiber
  5. having diabetes mellitus

What are the treatments available for this?

  1. Surgery: One of the famous treatments include surgeries. The famous surgery is Cholecystectomy (Removal of gallbladder) that further includes Laparoscopic surgery and Open cholecystectomy.
  2. Medications: The patients who cannot undergo surgeries can also use drugs like ursodiol and chenodiol . But this can take months or years to remove stones from bladder.

You can reduce your risk of gallstones if you:

  1. Don't skip meals. Try to stick to your usual mealtimes each day. Skipping meals or fasting can increase the risk of gallstones.
  2. Lose weight slowly. If you need to lose weight, go slow. Rapid weight loss can increase the risk of gallstones. Aim to lose 1 or 2 pounds (about 0.5 to 1 kilogram) a week.
  3. Maintain a healthy weight. Obesity and being overweight increase the risk of gallstones. Work to achieve a healthy weight by reducing the number of calories you eat and increasing the amount of physical activity you get. Once you achieve a healthy weight, work to maintain that weight by continuing your healthy diet and continuing to exercise.

पथरी का होम्योपैथिक इलाज - Pathri Ka Homeopathic Ilaaj!

आज पथरी का होम्योपैथिक इलाज संभव है. शरीर में पथरी बनने का कोई स्पष्ट कारण का तो पता नहीं चला है. पर शरीर में अतिरिक्त गर्मी बढ़ने से, गर्म जलवायु से, कम मात्रा में पानी पीने से इत्यादि कारणों से शरीर में जल की कमी होकर डिहाइड्रेशन की स्थिति हो जाती है जिससे पेशाब में कमी व सघनता हो जाती है. इस कारण शरीर में यूरिक एसिड की मात्रा अधिक हो जाती है, कैल्शियम आक्सलेट पेशाब के माध्यम से बाहर नहीं हो पाता है, इसके अलावा फॉस्फेट, अमोनियम फॉस्फेट, मैग्नीशियम कार्बोनेट आदि तत्व किडनी के नली जमने लगते है जो धीरे-धीरे पथरी का रूप ले लेते हैं. पाचन प्रणाली के खराबी के कारण भी इस प्रकार के दोष होते हैं व पथरी बनते हैं.
हालांकि पथरी (stone) कई हिस्से में हो सकते हैं, जैसे किडनी में, मूत्राशय में, गोल ब्लाडर में, पित्ताशय में, पेशाब के नली में इत्यादि. पर किडनी में पथरी की रोग अधिक पाये जाते हैं. किडनी में पथरी बनने का मुख्य कारण गलत खानपान व कम पानी पीना है. कम पानी पीने से शरीर में यूरिक एसिड की मात्रा बढ़ जाती है जिससे किडनी में पथरी बनते हैं.

पथरी के लक्षण-
पथरी के बनने पर पेट के निचले हिस्से में, पीठ में या कमर में तीव्र दर्द हो सकता है या चलने-फिरने पर भी दर्द हो सकता है. ये दर्द अचानक होते हैं जो धीरे-धीरे बढ़ कर असहनीय हो जाते हैं. चूँकि पथरी अलग-अलग स्थानों पर बन सकता है इसलिए दर्द का स्थान भी अलग-अलग हो सकता है. कभी-कभी पथरी का आकार छोटा रहने पर दर्द नहीं होता है जिससे पथरी होने का पता भी नहीं चलता है पर जब इसका आकार बढ़ जाता है तब या जब ये पेशाब के रास्ते में आ जाता है तब दर्द का एहसास होता है. पेशाब के रास्ता में पथरी आने पर अचानक भयंकर दर्द होता है और दर्द की तीव्रता बढ़ती जाती है जो जांघ, अंडकोष या महिलाओं में योनि द्वार तक चला जाता है. कभी-कभी मूत्रमार्ग में पथरी फँसने से पेशाब रुक जाता है या पेशाब में खून आने लगता है व पेशाब करते समय दर्द होता है. पथरी होने पर पेशाब का रंग बदल जाता है. पेशाब का रंग लाल, गुलाबी या हल्का भूरा हो जाता है. किडनी में पथरी होने पर पेशाब करते समय दर्द भी होता है व जी मचलने तथा उल्टी की भी शिकायत होती है. पथरी का दर्द इतना भयंकर रहता है कि इसके वजह से मरीज न तो बैठ सकता है न लेट सकता है और न खड़ा ही रह सकता है. इस दर्द में एक बेचैनी सी रहती है.

पथरी से बचाव व इलाज-
पथरी से बचने के लिए अधिक मात्रा में पानी पीना चाहिए. भोजन में कैल्शियम व आक्सलेट युक्त पदार्थ का सेवन सीमित मात्रा में ही करनी चाहिए. पथरी होने पर टमाटर, मूली, भिंडी, पालक, बैगन व मीट का सेवन नहीं करना चाहिए. पथरी होने पर एलोपैथी चिकित्सा पद्धति में इसे ऑपरेशन करके या ‘लिथोट्रिप्टर’ नामक यंत्र से किरण के माध्यम से गलाकर बाहर निकालते हैं. यह अत्यधिक महँगा इलाज है और इससे पथरी निकल तो जाती है पर इससे पथरी बनने की प्रवृति समाप्त नहीं होती है. पर होमियोपैथी चिकित्सा पद्धति में कई ऐसे चमत्कारी दवाई हैं जिनका लक्षण के आधार पर सेवन करके बिना ऑपरेशन के दवाई द्वारा ही पथरी को निकालकर पथरी बनने के कारण को भी समाप्त किया जा सकता है. पथरी यदि छोटा (समान्यतः 3 मिमी से छोटा) रहता है तो दवाई के प्रयोग से ही यह आसानी से बाहर आ जाता है. पर पथरी बड़ा रहने पर होमियोपैथी दवा के साथ अन्य आधुनिक उपचार की भी जरूरत होती है. आइये पथरी का होमियोपैथिक इलाज से संबंधित कुछ दवाओं पर नजर डालें.

पथरी के इलाज के लिए होमियोपैथिक दवाई-
बर्बेरिस बल्गारिस (Berberis Vulgaris): - किडनी व पित्ताशय दोनों तरह की पथरी के लिए यह उत्तम दवा है. किडनी के जगह से दर्द शुरू होकर पेट के निचले हिस्से तक या पाँव तक दर्द का जाना, हिलने-डुलने या दबाव से दर्द बढ़ना, दर्द कम होने पर रोगी का दाहिने ओर झुकना, म्यूकस युक्त या चिपचिपा लाल या चमकदार लाल कण युक्त पेशाब होना, पेशाब में जलन होना, बार-बार पेशाब होना, पेशाब करने के बाद ऐसा महसूस होना जैसे कुछ पेशाब अभी रह गया हो, पेशाब करने पर जांघ या कमर में दर्द होना इत्यादि लक्षण में इस दवाई का सेवन करना चाहिए.
लाइकोपोडियम (Lycopodium): - पेशाब होने से पहले कमर में तीव्र दर्द होना, दायें किडनी में दर्द व पथरी होना, मूत्रमार्ग से मूत्राशय तक जानेवाला दर्द होना, बार-बार पेशाब जाने की इच्छा होना, पेशाब में ईंट के चुरा जैसा लाल पदार्थ निकलना, किसी शीशी में पेशाब रखने पर नीचे लाल कण का जम जाना व पेशाब बिल्कुल साफ रहना, पेशाब धीरे-धीरे होना आदि लक्षणों में इस दवाई का सेवन करना चाहिए.
सारसापेरिला (Sarsaparilla): - बैठकर पेशाब करने में तकलीफ होना व बूंद-बूंद पेशाब उतरना जबकि खड़े होकर पेशाब करने में आसानी से पेशाब उतरना, पेशाब का मटमैला होना व पेशाब में सफेद पदार्थ निकलना, पेशाब के अंत में असह्य दर्द होना व गर्म चीजों के सेवन से यह दर्द बढ़ना आदि लक्षणों में इस दवाई का सेवन करना चाहिए.
कैल्केरिया कार्ब (Calcarea Carb): - यह दवा दर्द दूर करने का उत्तम दवा है. किडनी के पथरी में इसे दिया जा सकता है. मूत्र नली में पथरी हो या पथरी के जगह पर तीव्र दर्द हो, रोगी को खूब पसीना आ रहा हो आदि लक्षणों में इस दवा का प्रयोग किया जा सकता है.
ओसिमम कैनम (Ocimum Canum): - तुलसी पत्ता से बनने वाली इस औषधि में यूरिक एसिड बनने के प्रवृति रोकने की गुण है अतः यूरिक एसिड से बनने वाली पथरी में यह दवा लाभकारी होता है. पेशाब में लाल कण आता हो, दाहिना तरफ किडनी के जगह पर दर्द हो तो इस दवा का सेवन किया जा सकता है.

नोट: -
यहाँ पथरी के इलाज संबंधी कुछ होम्योपैथिक दवाई का उल्लेख किया गया है, जो जानकारी मात्र के लिए है. पाठकों को सलाह दी जाती है कि वे अपने चिकित्सक के देखरेख में ही इलाज कारायें व चिकित्सक के परामर्श से ही किसी भी प्रकार का दवाई का सेवन करें.
