Lithotripsy is also called shock wave lithotripsy, as this non- invasive procedure uses shock waves. In this procedure stones are broken up that form in the kidney, ureter and urinary bladder by the help of shock waves. There are many forms of it. But the most common is extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy. Extracorporeal means outside the body. If you have stone in kidney, ureter or urinary bladder then surely you are the one for this treatment. It is important to keep in mind the size, location, shape and number of stones in the urinary organs. Doctors will instruct you not to eat or drink anything before this procedure. Before this procedure a whole physical examination will be taken to determine the number of stones in urinary organs. This test is called Intravenous pyelogram. This is a radio- opaque dye which will show up on x-ray as it travels through the bloodstream and will be excreted by the kidneys. There are some risks involved with this surgery, which are pieces of stone are left in the body, kidney may suffer from bleeding, damage to nearby structures in stomach by ESWL, blockage of urine flow from the kidney, and sign of infection may also occur like strong need to urinate, severe pain, blood in urine. Abdominal pain is fairly common after ESWL, but it is usually not a cause for worry. However, persistent or severe abdominal pain may imply an unexpected internal injury. Occasionally, stones may not be completely fragmented during the first ESWL treatment and further lithotripsy procedures may be required. Some people are allergic to the dye material used during an IVP, so it cannot be used. For these people, focused sound waves, called ultrasound, can be used to identify where the stones are located.
