Abstract

Extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy (ESWL) for the disintegration of urinary stones has been established world-wide within a relatively few years and has proved to be a safe procedure. Despite the experience gained so far with more than 800,000 patients, the following questions are not, as yet, satisfactorily answered:
  1. a)

    is there a risk for development of hypertension subsequent to ESWL;

     
  2. b)

    is there a change in renal function in the long-term course following ESWL treatment; and

     
  3. c)

    how high are the rates of residual and recurrent stones in the long-run.
