Endoscopic removal of bladder and ureteral stones
ENDOSCOPIC REMOVAL OF BLADDER AND URETHERAL STONES
URS surgery is indicated if you have a large stone in your kidney or ureter. The surgery typically takes 30 minutes to two hours and can be done as an outpatient procedure. You should be able to resume normal activities in two to three days. After you are under anesthesia, your doctor inserts a telescope-like instrument, called a ureteroscope, through the opening of your urinary tract and into the bladder, which means there are no surgical cuts or incisions made. Your doctor uses the scope to examine your urinary tract – including your kidneys, ureters and bladder – then locates the kidney stone and breaks it apart using laser energy or removes the stone with a basket-like device.To help control swelling and allow the kidney to drain urine, your doctor may insert a small plastic tube, called a ureteral stent, in your urinary tract at the end of the procedure. The stent will be removed at a follow-up appointment.
ystoscopy (sis-TOS-kuh-pee) is a procedure that allows your doctor to examine the lining of your bladder and the tube that carries urine out of your body (urethra). A hollow tube (cystoscope) equipped with a lens is inserted into your urethra and slowly advanced into your bladder.
Cystoscopy may be done in a testing room, using a local anesthetic jelly to numb your urethra. Or it may be done as an outpatient procedure, with sedation. Another option is to have cystoscopy in the hospital during general anesthesia.
