Stone disease

Show Summary Details


Significant changes in the acute medical management updates of ureteric stones have occurred since the last edition, following publication in 2015 of the large randomized controlled trial SUSPEND from the UK which suggests that medical expulsive therapy (MET) may not be of any benefit for ureteric stones. Other than this, renal and ureteric stone management remains essentially unchanged.
