Urodynamic Investigations in Nephrolithiasis

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


Urodynamics and urinary lithiasis are two subjects in urology which are normally thought to be well separated. Nevertheless, sometimes it is useful to have a new approach to well established questions. Three points will be discussed in this paper:
  1. 1.

    Urodynamic aspects of stone genesis.

  2. 2.

    Current urodynamic methods for functional studies of the upper urinary tract.

  3. 3.

    Physiology and pharmacology of the pyeloureteral system.
