Abstract


This will be a retrospective chart review of the current Extracorporeal Shockwave Lithotripsy (ESWL) programme at Inkosi Albert Luthuli Central Hospital. A single adult patient population with intrarenal calculi that have completed the programme would be included. Pre-treatment, treatment and post-treatment variables would be evaluated, with the aim of determining the safety and efficacy of treatment offered at the institution.
