Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is the condition of enlarged prostate. In BPH the prostate swells, causing various urinary complications like frequent urination, urinary retention, loss of bladder control, etc. Older men are mostly affected by this condition. Experts say that hormones are majorly responsible for BPH. Treatment includes medication, lifestyle changes or sometimes even surgery.
Ureterorenoscopy is a medical procedure used mostly in the treatment of kidney stones. In this process, an endoscope is passed through the bladder into the ureter in order to visually inspect the interiors of the kidney.
Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL)
PCNL is applied in the treatment of kidney stones, especially when the stones are larger in size and can’t be treated using ureteroscopy or shock wave lithotripsy. A small incision is made and a guide wire is passed into the pelvis of the kidney through a tube. By passing a small telescope through the tube, the stones are visually inspected, broken and removed.
Uroflowmetry is a test done when the patient has problems associated with urination. It is used to measure the flow of urine. This test helps in assessing the functioning of the urinary tract.
Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL)
ESWL is a non-invasive method used in kidney stone treatment. In this method, shock waves are targeted at the kidney stone causing it to break into smaller fragments tiny enough to be passed in urine.
