PKD & Kidney Cysts

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a group of disorders that result from the formation and progressive enlargement of cysts in the kidneys without dysplasia, usually leading to renal failure.

Risks Of Surgery For Kidney Stone In PKD

2013-04-11 16:49

PKD patients often find they have formed stones in their kidneys during the tests of ultrasound or MRI done for renal cysts. Kidney stone is one common complication of PKD. Though it is benign, it can cause urinary tract obstruction, pains, hydronephrosis, blood in urine or even speed up the progression into renal failure.

Conventional treatment for kidney stone is surgery including extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy and percutaneous nephroscope lithotomy. However there are some extra risks for PKD patients to have these surgeries because they have numerous fluid-filled cysts in their kidneys. Operating surgery has definite harms and injuries to these cysts and it can even cause the rupture of renal cysts and cause serious consequences such as cyst infection, kidney infections, blood in urine or even cause rapid deterioration of illness conditions and sharp decline of kidney functions.

If the stone is smaller than 5mm, it can be treated with conventional remedies. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, along with proper medicines and foods can help dissolve the stone and discharge it through urination.

If the stone is larger than 5mm, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can also help, but it requires some time. Therefore we can see that an early detection will enable a far better curative effects and less harms and sufferings to the patients. It is very necessary that PKD patients should have regular checks every 3-6 months and even very small kidney stones can be found in renal imaging tests.

Why Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can help treat kidney stone and renal cysts? Active ingredients in Chinese medicines can remove blood clots, promote blood circulation and increase blood flow in the kidneys so as to help discharge small stones from the kidneys. If the stone is too large to pass through the kidney or urinary tract, Chinese medicines can help dissolve it to smaller size so that it can be discharged finally. But it takes some time for Chinese medicines to dissolve the stones.

As for the renal cysts in PKD, Chinese medicines can promote the re-absorption of cyst fluid into blood vessels so as to shrink the cysts into smaller size, symptoms and complications due to renal cysts will be greatly relieved and further illness progression will be prevented or at least much slowed.
