Lithotripsy is a procedure that crushes and grinds kidney stones into very small pieces. Being small, they can be easily removed through urine afterwards.
Kidney stones are small deposits of solid minerals, which are accumulated into the urinary tract. Most kidney stones travel through the urethras and the tubes leading from the kidneys to the bladder and then reach the bladder.
Sometimes, kidney stones get stuck in the urethras or bladder and cause painful obstructions. The blockage can lead to serious infections and kidney damage. Anyone with kidney stones that cause obstruction, infection or severe bleeding may need lithotripsy.
Statistics show that this condition is more common in men, but in recent years there has been a considerable increase in the number of women suffering from kidney stones. Although pain is strong irrespective of sex, the man feels pain more intensely as his urinary tract is longer than the female’s and remove the stone harder, causing more pain.
