What is RIRS?

RIRS uses a laser and a fiberoptic endoscope, a viewing tube that passes through the urethra and into the kidney to remove stones without making any incisions on the kidney. Under general, local, or spinal anaesthetic, it is carried out. A specialist urologist with RIRS training is required for this surgery.

Who needs RIRS?

A advanced treatment called RIRS is typically used to treat big stones. Under normal circumstances, it is typically the best option for patients with stones between 10mm and 14mm in size. When shockwave lithotripsy and ureteroscopy are failed, RIRS for kidney stone removal is typically effective. To prevent complications following surgery, it is crucial to speak with your doctor before beginning treatment if you are on any medications or have an ongoing medical condition. Some international surgical publications advise patients over the age of 65 to speak with a urologist before undergoing RIRS for kidney stone removal.

What happens during a RIRS operation?

For the treatment of challenging kidney stones, cutting-edge surgery called RIRS is used. The doctor administers spinal or general anaesthesia prior to the procedure to ensure there is no discomfort throughout the procedure. The urologist uses imaging tests to identify the stone's precise position. Then, a device called as a ureteroscope is used to inspect the ureteral canal. In order to locate stones or areas of ureteral obstruction, the surgeon can look within the body with the use of a camera that is attached to one end of the tool.

The surgeon can remove the stones whole with forceps or break them up into smaller fragments with laser beams. An sophisticated holmium laser is used to target the stone and smash or move it without damaging the neighbouring organs. Then, urine is used to remove the stone fragments from the body.
