Han H, Segal AM, Seifter JL, Dwyer JT - Clin Nutr Res (2015)

Bottom Line: This review article provides information about epidemiology, mechanism, diagnosis, and pathophysiology of kidney stone formation, and methods for the evaluation of stone risks for new and follow-up patients.Adequate evaluation and management can prevent recurrence of stones.Recognition of these risk factors and development of long-term management strategies for dealing with them are the most effective ways to prevent recurrence of kidney stones.

ABSTRACT
The incidence of kidney stones is common in the United States and treatments for them are very costly. This review article provides information about epidemiology, mechanism, diagnosis, and pathophysiology of kidney stone formation, and methods for the evaluation of stone risks for new and follow-up patients. Adequate evaluation and management can prevent recurrence of stones. Kidney stone prevention should be individualized in both its medical and dietary management, keeping in mind the specific risks involved for each type of stones. Recognition of these risk factors and development of long-term management strategies for dealing with them are the most effective ways to prevent recurrence of kidney stones.

Figure 3: Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL).

Mentions: Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) is a non-surgical procedure using shock waves to fragment stones into small pieces which pass spontaneously several days or weeks later. Obese patients may not be effectively treated with ESWL. Cystine stones are very hard and are often not effectively treated with ESWL (Figure 3).
