Bladder Stones

Bladder stones mostly found in men who have increased urinary residuals in the bladder as a result of an enlarged prostate;  They can also be found in specific parts of the middle east, specifically Egypt

Cause

Bladder stones are composed of either calcium or uric acid crystals.  As a result of chronically elevated amounts of urine in the bladder, the stones slowly crystallize and form over time.  Prostate enlargement in men in the most common cause in the U.S.

Symptoms

Detection

Bladder stones can be diagnosed by cystoscopy with direct visualization and on plain x-ray of the pelvis

Treatment

Surgical removal : open extraction of the stone or stones by a small incision in the lower abdomen
Endoscopic: performed through a scope and stones are fragmented or broken to small pieces with a laser or hyrdualic lithotripsy
