Urinary stones.


Urinary stone disease is a common affliction in our society and may affect 1 to 5 per cent of the population. The physician involved in caring for the stone-forming patient must have a thorough understanding of the metabolic as well as anatomic abnormalities that may lead to repeat stone formation. The authors review the common metabolic abnormalities frequently seen in the stone-forming patient and present the current medical management of these problems. Ongoing changes in the surgical approach to urinary stones are also discussed.
