Urolithiasis in children is an infrequent, yet bothersome issue. Active treatment indications are those of the adults, but paediatric population deserve a more gentle approach due to its special features.
Shock wave lithotripsy has classically been, and still seems to be, the preferred treatment option, although endoscopic techniques have progressively been added in the last years mostly due to technological improvements, mainly miniaturization. Genetic factors are important in paediatric urolithiasis with higher frequency of cystine stones, and dietary and medical management may also be challenging.
An expert faculty panel in paediatric stone treatment will discuss current indications and offer tricks and tips for both medical and surgical management of this particular subset of patients.
This session is organised by the EAU Section of Urolithiasis (EULIS) and the EAU Working group on Paediatric Urology (EWPU).
