Urinary tract stones.
Urinary tract stone disease is one of the most common urologic conditions in the US, with a lifetime prevalence of about 13% for men and 7% for women. In this article we review the management of urinary tract stones and discuss when to seek urologic consultation. We cover epidemiologic data, stone types, presenting symptoms, imaging, metabolic evaluation and risk factors, and medical management strategies. We also discuss the indications for surgical intervention and the common operative procedures currently available.
