Kidney stones, kidney stones, little stones hurt into the soul. I believe that those who have experienced this experience absolutely do not want to come again. In fact, kidney stones are just a kind of urinary stones, as well as ureteral stones, bladder stones, urethral stones and so on. But most of the origins are kidney stones. Some stones require surgery, some stones can be conservatively discharged, and some stones do not even need to be bothered. So which stones can be left out, and which stones can go back to take the medicine and discharge the stones? Let me tell you. First talk about which stones need not be ignored for now. Renal stones less than 1cm in diameter and not causing hydrocephalus can be ignored temporarily. As for how to judge whether it caused hydrocephalus, you need to rely on ultrasound to determine. Because relatively small stones do not often cause discomfort in the kidneys, many people do not feel even if they block a certain calyx outlet and cause hydrocephalus. Most of them are found during physical examination. Therefore, if it is a kidney stone with a diameter of less than 1cm and it does not cause hydrocephalus, you don’t need to pay too much attention. Usually you only need to pay attention to drink more water to prevent the stones from increasing further. However, once the stones fall into the ureter, it often causes severe pain, which requires emergency treatment. In fact, we will encounter some friends who have kidney stones more than 1cm and less than 1.5cm because they have no symptoms. They do not take any treatment because they have no symptoms. Although there is a risk in this way, in theory, as long as the stones It does not fall into the ureter and does not cause hydrocele in the renal pelvis or calyces. It can also be observed closely. Of course, we recommend active treatment for stones over 1cm. Let me talk about which stones can conservatively row stones. As mentioned earlier, if stones fall into the ureter, emergency treatment is required. This treatment is usually to relieve the pain first, and then do the imaging examination after the pain is stopped, mainly ultrasound and CT. Multi-slice spiral CT diagnosis of stones is close to 100%. If you find that ureteral stones are combined with the following conditions, you can conservatively discharge stones first. 1. Stones not exceeding 1cm, preferably not exceeding 0.7cm. 2. There is no obstruction of the urinary tract below the stone, which means that the ureter and urethra below the stone are not narrowed, but this is often not a good judgment at the beginning, even after CT. 3. The stones did not cause complete obstruction and stayed in the local area for less than 2 weeks. So whether it causes a complete obstruction often requires some inspection methods to judge according to the degree of hydronephrosis. If the stone stays in a certain part for a long time, it will stimulate local inflammation and edema, and even produce inflammatory wraps. This is difficult to get rid of by yourself. 4. Auxiliary row of stones after some surgical treatment. For example, after some large stones are treated with surgery, not all of the stone debris can be removed. At this time, auxiliary stone removal is needed. 5. Smooth stone surface. This can make a preliminary judgment from the ultrasound and CT images.  . The above conditions are suitable for conservative row of stones. If it does not meet the above conditions, it is recommended to take more active treatment to prevent damage to kidney function caused by delay. Then the next article will introduce how to scientifically carry out conservative stone removal, which medicines and which actions can exert the most effect of stone removal, and how much water is enough to drink. These issues will be explained in detail in the next article.  . Want to learn more related knowledge, make your life healthy and colorful? Then please follow me!
