Advantages and Disadvantages of Surgeries for Kidney CystsIn clinical practice, puncturing and drainage, surgery to remove the cyst and conservative treatment are often used for simple or multiple renal cysts. These routine treatments for renal cysts can alleviate the patient's symptoms, but at the same time, they are often accompanied by adverse conditions. In this article, let’s have a quick look at advantages and disadvantages of puncturing and drainage, and surgery.

Puncturing and draining the cyst

Experts believe that this method should not be the first choice of treatment regardless of the size of the cyst; renal cyst puncture and drainage should be prudent and selective. If the cyst is over 5cm in size, which has a great impact on people's work, health and living, it can be treated by puncture and drainage, but other cases can not be treated by it.

First, the cyst has a completely closed capsule. The cyst fluid is secreted by the wall of the cyst. Puncture can extract the cyst fluid, but it can not eliminate the capsule. After puncture, the cyst grows faster because of stimulation.

Secondly, repeated puncture can lead to intracystic infection.

Third, repeated puncture and infection can cause cyst canceration.

Therefore, puncture and drainage can not be done without any consideration. On the other hand, for a small number of patients suitable for puncture, although puncture can relieve the current pain in a short time, but after puncture, cysts tend to grow rapidly, so it is better to cooperate with drug treatment after puncture to inhibit the rapid growth of cysts.

Surgery to remove the cysts

From the observation of a large number of surgical data, the operation not only fails to treat polycystic kidney disease (PKD) thoroughly, but also brings new physical and mental trauma to patients. More importantly, it is not long after the operation, usually for 6 months to 1 year or so for many patients to have relapse. And the condition may even get worse. In view of this situation, many experiences and lessons are summed up. Renal cysts should not be operated prematurely.

However, surgical treatment is still needed for the following cases:

-Large cysts (generally greater than 6CM) are treated with drugs for 6 months to 1 year or by multiple punctures, but the symptoms are not alleviated, the cysts are uncontrolled, and the disease continues to develop.

-A large amount of blood accumulated in the cyst, which could not be absorbed by itself.

-Serious infection and suppuration in the cyst

-Cyst rupture and bleeding, which can not be repaired optionally and may lead to abdominal infection.

-Cysts tend to be malignant.

-Refractory hypertension (malignant hypertension) caused by PKD, uncontrollable by conservative therapy.

-Cysts (kidneys) get twisted and could not be repositioned optionally.

-Severe hematuria, which can not be stopped by conservative treatment.

Now you know the advantages and disadvantages of surgeries for kidney cysts. If you do not like these invasive treatment, you can try conservative treatment for kidney cysts. For more information on conservative treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
