New Developments for Kidney Stones
Exciting news emerged from the American Urological Association’s annual meeting last month; that is the development of its first guidelines for the medical management of kidney stones.
There are 27 statements within the guidelines developed by Dr. Margaret S. Pearle, MD, PhD, that encompass factors involved with kidney stones. A list of the guidelines can be found here. Oftentimes, kidney stones have various causes and can affect any part of your urinary tract.
