Common "Urinary Stones" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Urinary Stones

Urinary stones are formed when urine contains more crystal-forming substances such as calcium, oxalate, and uric acid than the fluid. The urine can lack substances that prevent crystals from sticking together and results in the formation of urinary stones. It causes difficulty in emptying the bladder. It can be removed by doing shock wave lithotripsy, cystoscopy, and ureteroscopy.
