Abstract

Calculi in the augmented bladder is a well-reported and troublesome complication of augmentation cystoplasty and neurogenic bladders. Its incidence has been quoted as low as 8%1 and as high as 52%.2 Within either limit, it is safe to say bladder stone management is a common component of the practicing pediatric urologist.
