Introduction: There are more than 20 drugs, that are widely used as medical expulsive therapy after extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL). Herbal plants are actively used along with the drug therapy in order to improve the efficiency of the treatment.
Purpose of the study: to evaluate the efficiency of the drug "Renotinex" in patients with kidney stones, as medical expulsive therapy.
Materials and methods: A total of 41 patients with kidney stones who undergone ESWL were included in the study. Patients were divided into two groups of 21 patients. In the main group, patients received the dietary supplement "Renotinex" 2 capsules 2 times a day for 1 month, along with standard medical expulsive therapy (NSAIDs [Diclofenac suppositories 50 mg in case of pain] + alpha blockers [Tamsulosin 0.4 mg in the morning for 1 month). The efficiency of treatment was evaluated after 2 and 4 weeks by means of ultrasound and x-ray. A presence and mean size of the stone and dilatation of the collecting system were assessed. In addition, complete blood count (hemoglobin, level of red blood cells and white blood cells), as well as urinalysis (microhematuria and leukocyturia) were performed. For statistical analysis, Student's criterion and the Fishers method were used.
Results: After 2 weeks of treatment, a decrease in the hemoglobin level, number of leukocytes and erythrocytes in urine, as well as a significant decrease in pelvis size and the average size of the urinary stone were seen in the main group. In the control group, there was also a slight decrease in the hemoglobin and a significant increase in the grade of leukocyturia and microhematuria. After 4 weeks, significant intergroup differences were documented in the level of microhematuria, pelvis size and the presence of stone in the collecting system, as confirmed by ultrasound and X-ray study. Stone-free rate in the main group was 47.6%, compared to 20% in the control group.
Conclusion: Medical expulsive therapy in combination with dietary supplements "Renotinex" after ESWL is more efficient than standard medical expulsive therapy (NSAIDs and -blockers) as monotherapy.
