Retrograde Intra Renal Surgery - MPUH Nadiad
MULJIBHAI PATEL UROLOGICAL HOSPITAL, NADIAD


JAYARAMDAS PATEL ACADEMIC CENTRE

Retrograde Intra Renal Surgery

Jayaramdas Patel Academic Centre (JPAC) at the Muljibhai Patel Urological Hospital (MPUH), Nadiad is organizing a two-day programme on ‘Retrograde Intra Renal Surgery (RIRS)’ on 16th & 17th September, 2010. Who will be in the driving seat? PCNL, RIRS, ESWL?

RIRS is a procedure for doing surgery within the kidney using a viewing tube called a fiberoptic endoscope. The scope is placed through the urethra (the urinary opening) into the bladder and then through the ureter into the urine-collecting part of the kidney. The scope thus is moved retrograde (up the urinary tract system) to a position within the kidney (intrarenal).

RIRS may be done to remove a stone. The stone is seen through the scope and can then be manipulated or crushed by a pneumatic probe or evaporated by a laser probe or grabbed by small forceps, etc.

The advantages of RIRS over open surgery are that it is a minimally invasive surgery with the elimination of prolonged pain after surgery, and much faster recovery.

Muljibhai Patel Urological Hospital has handled more than 23000 stone cases so far.

The two-day programme will cover all aspects of RIRS. The participants will also be able to see LIVE surgeries of Flexible URS for Lower Calyceal Stone, Calyceal Diverticular Stone, Ectopic Kidney and Mini/Micro perc for Kidney Stone and Ectopic kidney stone.

Faculty from abroad and India will be participating. They include Drs Olivier Traxer (France), M Prabhakar, Pawan Gupta, Anil Bradoo, PP Rao, and Abhay Khandekar. Medical Director and Managing Trustee of MPUH, Dr. Mahesh Desai; and Chairman of Dept of Urology, Dr. R B Sabnis will also be participating in the programme.
