ABSTRACT

Background: Ureteric calculi are a commonly encountered clinical problem with a life time risk of 2-5% in Asian population. Fifty percent of patients have a recurrence of renal colic within 5 years of the first episode. Methodology: This was a descriptive study conducted among patients, who presented with ureteric colic to Teaching Hospital Peradeniya. An interviewer based questioner was filled and patients underwent radiological investigations to determine the side of urolithiasis. Purpose of this study was to assess time of onset of ureteric colic and the side of the stone. Results: In the study sample 29.6% had no demonstrable stone. 43% had in right side. 27.1% had in left side and 0.3% had bi-lateral ureteric colic. 44.1% of patients had the onset in the morning. 22.8% had the onset in the afternoon. 33.1% had the onset at night. Subjects who had stones in right side, 42.1% in the morning, 23.5% in the afternoon and 34.4% at night had the onset of ureteric colic. Subjects who had stones in left side, 47.4% in the morning, 19.2% in the afternoon and 33.4% at night had the onset of ureteric colic. Conclusions: Right side colic is more common than that of left side. Onset of pain (ureteric colic) was commonly in the morning and it is independent of the side and gender.

Keywords: Ureteric colic, time of onset, side, gender.
