RIRS stands for Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery, is a surgical procedure which is performed inside the kidney through viewing tube, known as a fiberoptic endoscope. It is performed to remove stones from the kidney. It is generally performed by inducing spinal or general anaesthesia.
What is RIRS?
It is an advanced technique of removing stones from the kidney by the use of the fiberoptic endoscope. It is performed to eliminate long term pain and illness caused due to stone.
When RIRS is required?
RIRS is an advanced technique over traditional surgical methods to remove stones present inside the kidney by the use of a tube which is placed in the bladder and further crushed and removed. It provides relief from long term pain.
Why RIRS is performed?
It is performed to remove stones which occur due to several reasons enlisted below:
- Prolong pain and illness in belly, side, and back
- Burning sensation during urination
- Urinary urgency
- Urine with blood
- Foul smell in urine
- Frequent travel to the washroom
Tests before RIRS
Physical examinations are performed one or two weeks before the surgical procedure starts. Post-operative tests are as follows:
- Blood tests
- Blood coagulation profile
- Blood chemistry profile
The surgery is performed by our best urologists by passing the tube, fiberoptic endoscope into the bladder through the urethra. The endoscope then reaches within the kidney where the stone is present. The stone further is blasted using a laser. A Dj stent is placed in the kidney a few days before surgery which helps in the quick recovery of the patient post-surgery.
