Contemporary management concepts of stone disease have changed significantly as a result of the enormous technological developments in the last 10-15 years. The main management concept remains bringing the patients into a completely stone-free status by using minimally invasive management alternatives. However, a well-planned treatment strategy which includes accurate imaging studies and recurrent prophylaxis based on a well-planned metabolic evaluation are also important steps to be considered for a successful and complication-free outcome.
Moreover, close collaboration between the disciplines involved (among which the nephrologic approach to stone-forming patients is the most crucial) is essential in obtaining the desired ultimate success, particularly in recurrent and complex cases.
Thus, in this EULIS session we will take a close look at recent developments in the field, particularly in imaging of stone disease. In addition, we will try to focus on the importance of close collaboration with other disciplines, particularly with regard to the changing concepts in both medical and surgical management of urolithiasis, from nephrologists’ as well as urologists’ perspectives.
