Metabolic and Medical Aspects of Urolithiasis — Introduction

  • R. Maiorca
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 9)


The second part of the course will be devoted to urolithiasis, an old issue for the urologist, but a rather new field of research for the nephrologist.
