Abstract

Introduction: Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) was established as a dramatic procedure in the treatment of urinary stones. According to the growing utilization of ESWL as a major method of urinary stone, management and the reports have been reported based on renal tissue damage.

Objectives: We decided to examine the severity of ESWL-induced renal tissue damage and its related factors by monitoring the urinary levels of cytokines.

Patients and Methods: In this study, the urinary samples of 32 patients with urolithiasis were taken before, 24 hours and 14 days after ESWL and interleukin-1ɑ (IL-1a) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) levels were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) method.

Results: Our findings indicated that there was a significant difference between the urinary levels of both IL-1ɑ and IL-6 in 14 days before and after ESWL.

Conclusion: According to our results, ESWL leads to an inflammatory process in the urinary tract and the inflammation have continuously increased up to 14 days after procedure.

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

Findings of the current study highlighted the underlying inflammatory process following extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) procedure and can be a good sample for further investigations.
