Abstract

Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) has revolutionized treatment of urolithiasis since its introduction in the 1980s. The great majority of renal and ureteral stones can be successfully treated with ESWL. Complications can be minimized with maximal efficacy if patient selection is optimum.
