Kidney Stone Medicine


A kidney stone, also known as a renal calculus, is a solid concretion or crystal aggregation formed in the kidneys from dietary minerals in the urine.Urinary stones are typically classified by their location in the kidney (nephrolithiasis), ureter (ureterolithiasis), or bladder (cystolithiasis), or by their chemical composition (calcium-containing, struvite, uric acid, or other compounds). About 80% of those with kidney stones are men. Stones can form when urine contains too much of certain substances that form crystals. These crystals can develop into stones over weeks or months.Calcium stones are most common. They are most likely to occur in men between ages 20 - 30. Calcium can combine with other substances to form the stone.Oxalate is the most common of these. Oxalate is present in certain foods such as spinach. It's also found in vitamin C supplements. Diseases of the small intestine increase your risk of these stones. You may not have symptoms until the stones move down the tubes (ureters) through which urine empties into your bladder. When this happens, the stones can block the flow of urine out of the kidneys.The main symptom is severe pain that starts suddenly and may go away suddenly. Pain may be felt in the belly area or side of the back. Pain may move to groin area (groin pain) or testicles (testicle pain). When a stone causes no symptoms, watchful waiting is a valid option. For symptomatic stones, pain control is usually the first measure, using Kidney Stone Medicine medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or opioids. More severe cases may require surgical intervention. For example, some stones can be shattered into smaller fragments using extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy. Some cases require more invasive forms of surgery. Examples of these are cystoscopic procedures such as laser lithotripsy or percutaneous techniques such as percutaneous nephrolithotomy. Sometimes, a tube (ureteral stent) may be placed in the ureter to bypass the obstruction and alleviate the symptoms, as well as to prevent ureteral stricture after ureteroscopic stone removal.

Kidney Stone Medicine conference provides quality education and updates in the treatment and management of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and related conditions, as well as Kidney Stone removal to help improve patient outcomes. The Kidney Stone Medicine program is designed for nurse practitioners, nurses, Kidney stone doctors, dietitians, social workers, and healthcare professionals who care for individuals with kidney stone disease.

National symposium and workshops bring together nurse practitioners, nurses, dietitians, social workers, and healthcare professionals who care for individuals with kidney disease, and in the fields of dialysis and kidney stone medicine. The Conference provides an open forum for presenting the latest results in the field of kidney stone medicine. Around 20 National symposiums and Workshops are going to be held across the globe which includes ‘KidneyWeek 2014’, ‘American Nephrology Nurses' Association 45th National Symposium’, ‘American Urological Association (AUA) Joseph Segura Annual Urolithiasis Update Course’, ‘Kidney Stones: Medical, Surgical and Dietary Approaches’, ‘Topics in Nephrology, Urology and Men's Health - Eastern Caribbean Cruise Conference’. The Renal Association is the professional body for United Kingdom nephrologists (renal physicians, or kidney doctors) and renal scientists in the UK. From its foundation in 1950, the Renal Association has been active in promoting and disseminating research that may ultimately improve outcomes for patients with kidney disease. The Association has also taken a leading role in the education of clinicians and scientists interested in kidney disease. More recently, it has become more active in issues around training of doctors and the planning and development of clinical services. The Association has become increasingly aware of the importance of healthcare delivery by a multidisciplinary team and is affiliated with the British Renal Society, the umbrella organisation for healthcare and patient organisations with an interest in kidney disease. In January 2010 The British Association of Paediatric Nephrology became a division of The Renal Association.The objectives of the Association are to advance, collate and disseminate knowledge of renal structure and function. To seek means for the prevention and treatment of renal disorders. To deal with any matters concerning the welfare of patients with renal diseases and the organisation of services for their relief.
