Great success has been achieved in the management of urolithiasis in China over the decades . However, whether and how Chinese urologists follow the accepted guidelines [2, 3, 4, 5] is unknown. To answer the question, we performed a nationwide survey in China. Here we briefly report the results, point out current issues, and propose recommendations on urolithiasis management in China.
