In order to promote stone passage in renal colic, we must first understand normal ureteral activity and how this is affected by the presence of a stone. Measuring normal ureteral activity in humans is difficult without the use of invasive methods or techniques which in themselves may affect peristalsis. Monitoring the activity during confirmed renal colic is even more difficult and virtually impossible. Both animal and human studies have therefore been used in an attempt to understand the… CONTINUE READING
