Abstract

Treatment of staghorn stones with extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy (ESWL) is still a controversial issue. The treatment objectives as in any other less-complex stone are: a) clinical effectiveness of the treatment approach; b) safety of the method/s used in terms of short-term and longterm adverse effects; c) predictability of treatment success and follow-up; and d) cost effectiveness.
