Extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy for urinary calculi in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (Journal article)
Delakas, D./ Daskalopoulos, G./ Cranidis, A.
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is an inherited systemic disorder. Renal stones have a high rate of occurrence among patients with ADPKD and are a significant cause of morbidity in this disorder. Thirteen patients with ADPKD and symptomatic or obstructive renal stones presented to our hospital for evaluation and treatment with extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (SWL). A total of 16 renal units were treated. The auxiliary procedures included placement of a double-J stent in nine kidneys when the stone was larger than 8 mm in diameter. Eleven patients (85%) were stone free 3 months after lithotripsy; a second treatment was necessary in two patients. We conclude that SWL can be used as a primary management tool for renal stones in patients with ADPKD.
