A host of new technologies, techniques, and medical regimens have been introduced over the past 30 years for the diagnosis, management, and prevention of urinary calculi. These range 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. Clinical Management of Urolithiasis will serve as a practical guide to 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, the book 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.
