Holmium Laser – Stone Crushing Processes
Holmium laser is a method used to break stones in the urinary tract. With this method, stones in the bladder, kidneys, ureters (tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder), or urethra (the tube where urine leaves the body from the bladder) can be crushed.
A flexible laser fiber is inserted through a binocular (camera) placed in the urethra to crush stones. The stone fragments are then removed with a small basket or other tools. The procedure is done without any incision.
Applications of Holmium laser
Holmium laser performs the stone crushing process effectively regardless of the size, position, and hardness of the stone and therefore has a wide range of uses. Applications of this treatment method;
Treatment of kidney, ureter, and bladder stones
Upper urinary tract (ureter) strictures,
Lower urinary tract (urethra) strictures,
Urinary tract tumors
External genital lesions
Holmium laser procedure
Your surgeon will give you specific instructions on what to do with your medications and diet before your appointment. Most laser kidney stone treatments are done on an outpatient basis so you can go home the same day.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia for you to remain still throughout the procedure. The new lasers are precise and powerful, making it easier for the surgeon to check and break up the stone.
You may feel some pain after the procedure. At the same time, you may feel that you need to urinate and you may find some blood in the urine. Men may also have pain in the penis or testicles.
Your doctor will prescribe medication after surgery. Usually, these are antibiotics to prevent infection, pain killers, and perhaps medications to treat bladder spasms and burning sensation during urination.
You can continue your normal activities the day after the procedure or whenever you feel comfortable. Approximately one week after the procedure, you should visit your doctor. At this stage, your doctor evaluates the success of the treatment and asks you questions about your recovery process.
Since kidney stones are a chronic problem, it is possible to recur in the future. Follow your urologist’s advice to help prevent future kidney stones, and feel free to make an appointment if symptoms return.
