The Procedure of Surgery to Drain Cysts On Polycystic KidneysSurgery may be needed when cysts on polycystic kidneys become larger than 3 or 4cm. If you have ADPKD and are informed to do this surgery, you must wonder the procedure of surgery to drain cysts on polycystic kidneys. Getting an overall understanding is a good preparation for the following nursing care.

Surgery for people with Polycystic Kidney Disease

PKD is a chronically progressive condition in which quite a number of sac-fluid cysts become larger and larger. Back pain, hypertension, hematuria, etc, are usually the signs of enlarged kidney cysts. Most often, just because of these painful or severe symptoms, most PKD patients are eager to find out an alleviating therapy.

Surgery for big kidney cyst, either aspiration or laparoscope, can help reduce the pressure on kidney tissues from these cysts especially easing back pain.

The procedure of surgery to drain cysts

- Find out the location of large kidney cyst: Using ultrasound for guidance, doctors can find their target quickly.

- Drain kidney cyst: Doctors use a long needle to puncture kidney cyst, and this needle needs to insert through the skin around kidney area.

- Harden kidney tissue: Use some substances containing alcohol to fill the empty pouch, so as to harden the tissues and reduce the risk for kidney cyst recurrence.

Does the cyst relapse after the surgery?

Even if some substances are filled to harden PKD renal cysts, fluid can still be secreted by cystic lining epithelial cells and refilled the sac gradually. That is to say, PKD renal cysts recur easily after surgery. For this reason, another treatment to prevent the recurrence of renal cysts is also needed.

As introduced by doctors of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), some Chinese herbs can help inactivate cystic lining epithelial cells to prevent the refilling of kidney cysts. However, different patients need different medicines. To get an individual prescription, you can send your test report to kidneyabc@hotmail.com, so doctors of TCM here can help you determine it.
