About this book


The prevalence and incidence of urolithiasis are rising worldwide. Accordingly, the diagnosis, management, and prevention of urinary calculi are relevant to all urologists. A host of new technologies, techniques, and medical regimens have been introduced over the past 30 years, from novel imaging procedures and medical expulsive therapy to interventional treatment options. The contemporary urologist should be familiar with and adept at implementing these new concepts and techniques. Furthermore, urologists should be comfortable with the comprehensive metabolic evaluation of high-risk patients and the initiation of dietary or medical preventive measures.


This book covers every clinically relevant aspect of urolithiasis and its treatment, both surgical and medical. In addition to providing up-to-date evidence-based recommendations regarding stone management, it reflects the real-life experience of well-known international experts. Each chapter includes tables and algorithms that allow the reader easily to check the requirements for specific procedures and to translate them into clinical practice. Clinical Management of Urolithiasis will serve as an ideal practical guide and source of information for use in everyday clinical routine.
