Quality of life in patients with urolithiasis depending on methods of drainage of the upper urinary tract



Quality of life in patients with urolithiasis depending on methods of drainage of the upper urinary tract



Urologiia 2010(2): 14-17



A sociological study was made of quality of life of 60 patients with nephrostomic drainage and 71 patients with an ureteral stent according to standard international questionnaires SF-36 and EORTC QLQ-C30, version 3.0. It was found that both internal and external drain significantly aggravate quality of life in the same degree. Younger patients of both groups suffered less. Quality of life was higher in both groups in drainage duration up to 1 month (p < 0.05), in 1 to 6 month draining quality of life is worse in both groups. Internal drainage is worse tolerated by males aged 25-44 years and elderly women aged 60-75 years, especially in long-term drain (over 6 months). Internal drainage is worse tolerated by elderly females (60-75 years of age) and senile women (over 75 years) in 6 month and longer drainage. The study of large number of patients revealed significant differences in quality of life in patients with nephrostomic drain and ureteral stent.
