About this book

With the rising incidence of urolithiasis, the management of ureteral stones continues to become a larger component of urologic practice. Though almost all urologists deal with ureteral stones, there have been many recent improvements in instrumentation and adjunctive equipment as well as improvements in imaging and the data we can obtain from radiologic imaging in order to guide stone management. Newer topics such as how to limit radiation exposure to both the patient and the urologist, the accuracy and limitations of low-dose computed tomography as well as a review of the most recent studies will be covered in this book. The purpose of this book is to provide a complete updated roadmap to treating ureteral stones, from early management decisions from information found on radiologic studies to adjusting to intra-operative challenges.

Reviews

“This is an excellent guide to all aspects of ureteral stone management with up-to-date evidence. … it is an excellent practical guide for all levels of practitioners. … This is a well-written, thorough, and practical guide to the clinical evaluation and treatment of ureteral calculi that urology practitioners, trainees, students, and support staff could benefit from.” (Mark J. Mann, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2015)
