A generation ago, the management of patients with urinary stones was forever altered with the introduction of minimally invasive treatment techniques such as shock wave lithotripsy, ureteroscopy, and percutaneous stone removal. We are again at the cusp of revolutionary developments in the management and prevention of nephrolithiasis.
This volume contains peer-reviewed papers that were presented at the 1st Annual International Urolithiasis Research Symposium, held in
Indianapolis, Indiana, in November 2006. This conference featured a very distinguished international faculty whose present research is clearly advancing the field of stone disease. This conference marked the first presentation of data on the interface between a renal stone and its tissue attachment site.
