Serum electrolytes can be useful as an indicator of clinically relevant complications of renal colic. For example, hyperkalemia can indicate 23 acute obstruction in a functionally or anatomically solitary renal unit. Additionally, serum electrolytes can be useful in some cases in terms of identifying an etiology. For example, the presence of hypercalcemia can suggest hyperparathyroidism, while a hypokalemic, hypochloremic metabolic acidosis is suggestive of type I RTA. Liver and/or pancreatic enzymes may be useful if a renal etiology cannot be firmly established (Chen et al.
The upper tracts of all patients were relieved of obstruction, and all patients were rendered stone-free. 03) recovery of function than those undergoing later intervention. The combination 4 Observation Versus Active Treatment of reduced function and infection was unrelated to outcome after intervention. The authors concluded that conservative management of stones of 5–7 mm diameter is safe, providing that radioisotope renography is used to identify those renal units requiring intervention maximizing renal function recovery (Irving et al.
A ureteral stone induces an inflammatory response by obstruction and ureteral wall tension. In turn, generated prostaglandins have a dilating effect on afferent arterioles resulting in an increased renal blood flow, increasing pyeloureteric pressure, inflammation, and edema (Ahmad et al. 1991). A subsequent increase of smooth muscle contraction impairs propulsive antegrade peristalsis aggravating ureteral obstruction, impaction, and pain (Holmlund and Hassler 1965; Yamaguchi et al. 1999). Therefore, agents used for MET should reduce inflammation, edema, ureteral spasm, and uncoordinated ureteral contractions without altering propulsive peristalsis.
