Acute urinary stones cause one of the most painful sensations the human body can experience, more painful than childbirth, broken bones, gunshot wounds or burns. Master your patient management with this comprehensive guide to a debilitating medical condition.

Urinary Stones: Medical and Surgical Management provides urologists, nephrologists and surgeons with a practical, accessible guide to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of urinary stone disease.

Divided into 2 parts – covering both medical and surgical management - leading experts discuss the key issues and examine how to deliver best practice in the clinical care of your patients.

Topics covered include:

  • Evaluation and management of stones in children
  • Renal colic and medical expulsive therapy
  • Imaging in stone disease: sonography, contrast based fluoroscopy, computed tomography and magnetic resonance urography
  • Multimodality therapy: mixing and matching techniques to improve outcome
  • Complications of stone disease
  • Interpretation of 24 hour urine chemistry
  • Prevention of recurrent calcium, uric acid, struvite and cystine stones
  • The different surgical techniques, including: ureteroscopy, shockwave lithotripsy, ureteroscopic lithotripsy and percutaneous nephrostolithotomy

Packed with high-quality figures, key points, and management algorithms, easy to follow, clear clinical guidance is supported by the very latest in management guidelines from the AUA and EAU.

Brought to you by the best, this is the perfect consultation tool when on the wards or in the office.
