Abstract

Since the advent of extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy (ESWL), some clinicians have questioned the medical approach in the management of nephrolithiasis (1, 2). New machines require little or no anesthesia so treatment has become faster and safer. In order to re-evaluate the role of medical treatment in the prevention of renal calcium stones, we surveyed the long-term results of pharmacological treatment in our stone clinic.
