The emergency management of patients with ureteral calculi and fever.

Abstract

Patients presenting with ureteral calculi and fever were treated with antibiotics, fluids and careful monitoring. An emergency operation or ureteral manipulation was withheld until the patient became afebrile. In 14 patients so treated all became afebrile and 11 required no surgical intervention. It is suggested that carefully monitored resuscitation should precede instrumentation in patients with urinary stones and fever.
