Abstract

Kidney stones are the result of a complex interaction of hereditary and environmental factors. They are an increasingly common affliction of industrialized societies. In nearly all cases, kidney stone formation can be drastically reduced or prevented if the patient adheres closely to a carefully designed prevention program. We emphasize an approach oriented around stone composition and targeted at specific risk factors. Our approach begins with fluid and dietary modifications and progresses to pharmacological treatment in nonresponders.
