KIDNEY STONE IN CHILDREN: DON’T LET YOUR CHILDREN SUFFER
CASE STUDY OF A 10 MONTHS OLD PATIENT WHO UNDERWENT SURGICAL INTERVENTION (Mini PCNL) FOR BILATERAL KIDNEY STONES AT SCI INTERNATIONAL HOSPITAL, DELHI, INDIA.
A couple far in Afghanistan was so delighted at the time of their first son’s birth in October 2017. The family called for a great celebration for their first child birth.
They named him Waaris (changed name). Kid was healthy and active. He had made the environment pleasant at home with his innocent smiles. He used to cry as well the way usually infants do but with his growing age his crying got intense and became the cause of concern to parents. They used to try every possible way to pacify the child but they had no other option to feel sad at that moment as the small kid could not even tell his problem to them.
Time passed away and the boy turned eight months.
It was a normal day, boy was playing with his toys, all of a sudden, he started crying out loud. His parents could not understand the reason behind that. But they could feel his painful state, they got worried and rushed to his paediatrician in Kabul. The doctor evaluated the kid and helped him with the immediate relief by injecting the analgesics (Painkiller).
The Paediatrician advised them to get an ultrasound KUB done for their child to find out the possible cause. The Parents did not delay the ultrasound, the very next day it was done which depicted stones in both the kidneys of the child. They suspected kidney stone in children.
Their Paediatrician advised them to see a Urologist (who treats kidney stone in children) on urgent basis as the stones were of significant size and moreover the patient( kidney stone in children) was mere eight months old.
So now parents started exploring good Urology hospital (who is expert in managing kidney stones in children) in New Delhi, India. They checked out many hospitals and the Urologists profile on their website but they found SCI International Hospital the best suited for their kid. They considered the Urologists at SCI International Hospital for their Son’s kidney stone treatment. SCI International Hospital is an advanced Urology and Andrology centre located in Greater kailash, part-1, New Delhi equipped with the most sophisticated and latest modalities for any Urology surgery.
We have skilled and experienced urologists at SCI Hospital. Success rates are excellent. In three years of establishment SCI Hospital’s Urology team has treated patients from more than 35 countries.
So, the parents started the preparations to visit SCI International Hospital in Delhi. Time elapsed and they arrived in Delhi when their son was 10 months old. The patient (who was diagnosed to have kidney stone) was evaluated by the Urologist at SCI Hospital on 16th August 2018. They were answered to their all queries and concerns up to their satisfaction.
They were explained that kidney stones in infants and children are not common although if your kid is diagnosed with kidney stones then there is no need to worry about as at SCI International Hospital kidney stones can be removed safely with minimum invasive surgery in children and infants as well.
They were explained if kidney stones are not removed, the stones may migrate from kidney to Ureter and can create more problems to the patient. The stones which remain in the kidney can increase in size and can be a source of recurrent Urinary Tract Infection associated with pain while urinating and sometimes haematuria (blood in urine).
They were advised to go for surgical intervention, Mini PCNL under general anaesthesia for their kid. Since the kid was 10 months old so parents were apparently apprehensive for the surgical intervention. Urologist at SCI Hospital tried to clarify their all doubts and fears about the surgery. They were explained about the clinical outcome.
With the empathetic and professional behaviour of the urologist and administration staff, the parents got convinced for Mini PCNL.
The patient (diagnosed to have a kidney stone) was being evaluated by the Paediatrician and Anaesthetist at SCI after the Urologist consultation. Paediatrician recommended medications for two days because the patient had a flu.
After two days as scheduled, the very young patient was taken into Operation theatre. Our Urologists, Anaesthetists, Nursing staff, OT staff, administration staff everybody understand how difficult it is for any parent to see their infant/child getting operated. So, the patient was handled cautiously at each step.
Surgery, Mini PCNL lasted for 40 minutes, it was carried out safely. The patient was kept in recovery area for few hours under observation of intensivists. He was shifted to the room at the earliest possible so as to provide him, his Mother’s warmth.
The evacuated stones were shown to the parents and were sent to the laboratory for stone analysis to know the cause of their formation. Patient was discharged after 2 days with the instructions to come for a follow up after a week and stents removal after two weeks.
Our team of Urologists ( specialists who lead in kidney stone in children ) performed Mini PCNL on a 10 months old patient safely and minimally traumatic makes SCI International Hospital proud.
