Pediatric Kidney Stones - Avoidance and Treatment.


Pediatric stone disease is increasing in incidence and healthcare costs. With more years at-risk for stone recurrence during their lifetimes, children with nephrolithiasis constitute a high-risk patient population that requires focused intervention through both medical and surgical means. Through high-quality future studies to compare methods of stone prevention and treatment, the burden of stone disease on the youngest members of society may be ameliorated.
