If you can not remove the stone from the ureter by conservative treatment, more radical techniques are needed. In the current urology, their spectrum is quite wide: catheterization, urethroscopy, remote and contact lithotripsy, percutaneous nephrolithotomy, surgical intervention. To understand which of them will give the result in a particular case, the doctor appoints:
If the stone is more than 8 mm stuck in the mouth of the ureter and can not move independently, a catheterization is prescribed. This technology is popular among endovezikalnoy therapy. The technique is effective in cases of difficulty urinating and renal colic. Its essence consists in the introduction into the urinary canal of medicines, which intensify peristalsis (novocaine, "Papaverin formitol). To achieve the result, the procedure is repeated several times, often using thin catheters: about 50 cm long and 1-3 mm wide.
In addition, the removal of stones from the ureter can be performed by electrical stimulation of the upper urinary tract through the electrodes of the catheter. In the medical arsenal, many ureteral loops have been proposed for the removal of solid formations. They are not recommended when the stone is set above the iliac vessels. If such methods can not help the patient, the urethral opening is dissected, and the concrement is allocated for 2-3 days. According to some experts, this method entails narrowing of the ureter and reflux.Back to contents
If a stone measuring no more than one centimeter has reached a third of the ureter or has sat down in its lower part, resort to ureteroscopy. Removal of the stone from the ureter through the urethra is done by a flexible instrument equipped with forceps, a camera and a basket. The procedure is painless, as it is accompanied by anesthesia and occurs without a single incision, the urethroscope is inserted into the urethra naturally. After the end, put a catheter to wash the urethra. A significant disadvantage of urethroscopy is severe pain after anesthesia, blood staining in urine, burning, frequent desires that can last up to 3 weeks. Remove these feelings with anesthetics.Back to contents
This term in medicine means the crushing of concrements with the help of a special device that generates waves. When they hit their pebbles, they scatter and eventually wash out with urine. The procedure is not traumatic, it is performed if the crystal in diameter does not exceed 5 mm and can be easily seen on X-ray images. Among the contraindications: the onset of inflammation, severe pain and ureteral overlap.Remote lithotripsy is considered ineffective, since the destruction of stones affects the surrounding walls of the organs, often repeated procedures are needed.Back to contents
This method for removing stones is more effective and is considered one of the main among all types of stone crushing. It consists in the features of different equipment, which is involved in the process:
If the stone in the ureter exceeds 2 cm in diameter, it is removed by inserting through the small incision with instruments. The procedure is accompanied by anesthesia, the concretions are extracted in a crushed form. The method is effective in coral formations, which are characterized by compacted and sharp edges. A nefoscope can extract calcium fragments even from the kidneys. In pregnancy, inflammation and malignant tumors in urogenitalia, percutaneous nephrolithotomy is strictly prohibited.Back to contents
If the stones in the ureter are large and do not leave for a long time, and also provoked infectious inflammation in urogenitalia, severe pain, blocked the outflow of urine, their excretion takes place only by operative by way of. These are emergency measures aimed at saving the kidneys. Practically in all urological departments specialize in cavitary operations, in which the specialist reveals the ureter, overlaps the clamps on both sides of the site with a concretion and just above it dissecting. After checking the patency of the channel, stitches are applied. Operations are dangerous hemorrhage, tissue damage, passing infections and newly formed hernias. The rehabilitation period after the surgical intervention can last for a month.Back to contents
Small stones from the ureter can be removed at home.To remove a stone does not mean to cure urolithiasis. Further measures should be aimed at eliminating the causes of stone formation.The list of necessary measures includes:

In particular, they are prepared according to one recipe: 2 handfuls of the collection are poured into 3 liters of boiling water and kept on the fire for 10 minutes.

In warm baths are added essential oils: lavender, thyme, mint, chamomile.
Baths contribute to vasodilation, relaxation of the smooth muscles of the urinary system, improve blood circulation and expand the walls of the ureter. Stones up to 7 mm can leave themselves after the first 10-15 minutes of a warm or hot bath. Longer procedures are more harmful than good, because they contribute to profuse sweating and reduce the allocation of urine.Back to contents
Diuretic tinctures are effective in combination with therapeutic baths. It should be noted that when stone formation is in the kidney, such decoctions can significantly harm, pushing them to the movement and causing renal colic and acute inflammation. If the stone is in the ureter, this way it can speed up its exit. They use herbal preparations from juniper, dog rose, birch and madder, horsetail, rosemary, thyme, cowberry.
