Proposed Care pathway for Renal Colic(to be developed)

  • High risk cases needing emergency 2nd care assessment:

  • Solitary functioning kidney

  • Pyrexia +/- other signs of infection (such as peritonitis)

  • Systemically unwell (hypovolaemia) +/- oliguria/anuria

  • Possibility of ectopic pregnancy – delayed menstruation (consider gynaecological assessment

  • Age >60 yrs especially if no social support

  • Patients preference is for I/P care

  • If urinalysis –ve high suspicion of alternative diagnoses

  • (Other diagnoses - Cholylithiasis; pneumonia; pleurisy; PE; musculoskeletal; IBS; AAA; pancreatitis; perf DU; hydronephrosis (of other aetiology) and other renal diagnoses)

  • Identify high risk cases

  • Community management – (60% of ureteric calculi will

  • pass spontaneously)

  • - Assess pain – consider NSAID’s (PO/PR/IM) unless

  • contraindicated (then pethidine)

  • - Reassess pain after 1 hour and after 12-24 hrs (telephone

  • review adequate)

  • - If pain not controlled emergency admission to urology

History

/Exam.

(with typical unilateral pain, loin to groin, with haematuria (macro or micro) in 80-90%)

Investigations

Same day KUB

Patient consults GP

  • LLP Intermediate Urology Service

  • Outcome of assessment

  • If no calculus then consider alternative diagnosis – as above

  • If hydronephrosis or suspicion of malignancy then urgent urology referral

  • If non-obstructing ureteric/renal stone, medullar sponge kidney, duplex kidney

  • If stone <5mm 90% will pass spontaneously by 4 weeks

  • If stone >7mm 10% will pass spontaneously by 4 weeks

Urinalysis

Emergency admission to Urology

Rapid access imaging – IVU (unless contraindicated) OR un-enhanced spiral CT – If IVU contraindicated then either KUB + USS OR un-enhanced spiral CT

BP, pulse,

RR and temp

Routine Urology referral
