Abstract

First-line therapy for urinary stones typically involves minimally invasive surgical procedures for obstructing stones that cause symptoms and do not pass spontaneously in a reasonable time. Treatment decisions are based upon suspected stone type, size, location, renal anatomy, and renal function. Comprehensive management of urinary lithiasis necessitates collaboration between the urologist, urology health care professionals, and medical colleagues that possess knowledge of medical treatment.
