Although lithotriptic methods are effective on removing urinary stones, these methods can only treat the symptoms, not cure the disease. Depending on the nature of the stones, there is a recurrency rate of 60-100 per cent, if follow-up measures are not taken. With detailed knowledge of the cause of urinary stone formation, however, recurrences can largely be prevented. This text is designed to assist the clinicians and health care professionals who care for patients with renal stones, by guiding them through the appropriate diagnostic studies and the development of effective and safe plans for treatment and prevention.
