Abstract

These guidelines have been developed by the British Association of Urological Surgeons to give a framework to clinicians, based primarily in the UK, for the management of patients presenting acutely with ureteric colic. They have been developed by consensus with reference to the American Urological Association/Endourological Society guidelines on the surgical management of stones and the European Association of Urology guidelines on urolithiasis, and adapted to the logistics of those practicing within the National Health Service. Grades of recommendation and levels of evidence are based upon the system adopted by the European Association of Urology.
