Doctors from the Preeti Urology & Kidney Hospital, under the aegis of Dr. V Chandra Mohan performed a complex procedure to remove kidney stones from a 4-months-old (born on April 5, 2019) baby boy, the World’s youngest patient to undergo such a procedure. Three stones of size 8 to 9 mm from each kidney were removed.
While kidney stone disease is common in India due to dehydration, malnutrition, usage of excessive salt, excessive intake of non-vegetarian; but the ailment is not common among children; finding it in new-born babies is a rarity.
On the complaint of not passing urine for over 24-hours, a 4-months-old baby was brought to Niloufer Hospital, where the baby was diagnosed with kidney stones. Doctors at Niloufer referred the case to Preeti Urology & Kidney Hospital, a healthcare institution that specializes in kidney care and has the expertise in performing Retrograde Intra Renal Surgery (RIRS).
Commenting on the surgery, Dr. V Chandra Mohan, Managing Director, Preeti Urology & Kidney Hospital said, such type of surgery is very rare. Few centres from China and USA have done in small children. But first time in the world we reported such RIRS procedure on both the kidneys simultaneously for 4 month male baby. And now we are proud to announce that Preeti Urology & Kidney Hospital has bettered this by performing the procedure on this 4-months-old baby.”
RIRS is an endoscopic surgery which allows to reach the kidney from the ureter. A flexible ureteroscope is used for these kinds of procedures. Through this device a laser fiber (Holmium laser) is used to treat the stones, following which the small fragments are removed with a basket.
The same RIRS surgery is done in this baby boy on both the sides of the kidney in a span of just one hour, removing all six stones, three stones from each side. And in performing this procedure, no cut, no stiches are used, and no bleeding is found; and the baby was discharged in few days after the procedure.
Dr. V. Chandra Mohan was ably supported by Dr. P Roopa, Radiologist, Dr Ramakrishna, Urologist, Dr Pavan, Anesthetist, Dr Ajay, Pediatrician to perform the procedure successfully.
Baby's father Mr. Md. Arshad Hussain said “Dr Chandra Mohan has given utmost care towards my son, my son got operated and discharged. Now my son is free from stones, he is active and normal. I was very happy with the care given by all the doctors and nurses of Preeti Urology & Kidney Hospitals. My sincere thanks to Dr Chandra Mohan and team, for saving my sons life”
Preeti Urology & Kidney Hospital is committed to monitor the baby through the lifetime to ensure there is no recurrence of the condition!
