Why do we form stones and how can we prevent them?

Poster Session 01

  • Location:
    Room Milan, North Hall (Level 1)
  • Chairs:
     G. Gambaro, Rome (IT)
     A. Skolarikos, Athens (GR)
  • Aims and objectives of this session

    The stone is not the disease! Unraveling the epidemiology and pathomechanisms of renal stone formation should be the aim of stone research. A thorough understanding of why crystals are retained is necessary to improve preventive concepts.

  • Poster viewing of 20 minutes. Presentations will take place on stage. Standard presentations are 2 minutes in length, followed by 2 minutes for discussion.
