Abstract
Urolithiasis, or stone disease occurs in 7% of women and 12% of men at some point, and these statistics are rising. Furthermore, for those who form a stone, the likelihood of a recurrence is nearly 50% within 5 years of initial diagnosis. Therefore, the need for effective, minimally invasive alternatives for stone eradication and prevention is critical. In general, urinary stones may include various combinations of chemicals. Mainly typical stones have calcium in combination with either oxalate or phosphate. The uric acid stones are much less common and the rare cystine stones. It was found that 80% of kidney stone cases are among men and only 20% are women.
