Kidney stones are a common condition, which causes significant morbidity for patients, has a high recurrence rate, and can lead to unfavourable outcomes like chronic kidney disease.
To prevent stone recurrence and associated complications, it is essential to recognize underlying metabolic disorders that are the cause of kidney stone formation. A comprehensive analysis of these underlying causes is called metabolic evaluation and is the basis for prescribing treatment aimed at preventing kidney stone formation.
However, successful treatment can be prescribed even in the absence of a full metabolic evaluation. The aim of this course is to cover these important topics.
Watch the interview with Andrej Skoberne, creator of the ISN Kidney Stone Course, on his experience of building this course.
