Welcome to the Kidney Stones Channel

Kidney stones are a common condition -- albeit a painful one -- affecting the urinary tract. While the exact cause of kidney stones is still unknown, they form when crystals in urine clump together instead of being passed through the body. Many times, kidney stones will eventually pass through the body without treatment. Common symptoms of the condition include sharp pains in the groin area and blood in the urine.
 
Welcome to the Kidney Stones Health Channel by eMedTV. This segment of the eMedTV Web site contains hundreds of articles addressing various aspects of kidney stones, from possible causes, to the types of kidney stones a person can develop, to ways of preventing stones from occurring (or recurring, in some cases). This channel also contains articles that describe the various treatment options available, including stents and extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy.
