Abstract

The management of small, non-obstructing renal stones in adults with recurrent lower urinary tract infections remains unclear. Whereas for larger or obstructing stones the decision to intervene becomes clearer, for stones smaller than 5 to 6 mm the decision to intervene requires consideration of multiple factors. This review describes these factors, including history, imaging, laboratory studies, as well as a comprehensive review of the literature. It remains of utmost importance that patients have additional possible etiologies appropriately evaluated and managed prior to intervention for their small renal stones.

SWL is only marginally mentioned among the diagnostic procedures and non-conservative treatment options.
