ESQUENA, S. et al. Renal colic: revision of literature and scientific evidence. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2006, vol.30, n.3, pp.268-280. ISSN 0210-4806.

In recent years diagnosis and treatment of acute renal colic have changed thanks to the introduction of new radiological procedures that allow with high reliability to establish obstructive cause and a better treatment. In the other hand, there are multiple clinical studies that show the most effective treatments for acute crisis. The aim of this revision is to update the diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of renal colic which were modified recently, and allowed to break some classic concepts without scientific evidence.

Keywords : Colic; Kidney; Uréter; Stone; Obstruction.
