If stones less than 7mm generally pass through without surgical intervention...Medical treatment of nephrolithiasis involves supportive care and administration of agents, such as the following:
Excessive water intake or IV hydration
Nonnarcotic analgesics
Oral/intravenous narcotic analgesics
NSAIDS (eg, ketorolac, ketorolac intranasal, ibuprofen)
Antiemetics (eg, metoclopramide)
Antibiotics (eg, ampicillin, gentamicin, ticarcillin/clavulanic acid, ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, ofloxacin) to reduce possible infections
Alkalinizing agents (eg, potassium citrate, sodium bicarbonate): For uric acid and cysteine calculi
Alpha blockers (eg, tamsulosin, terazosin)
Surgical option
Stones that are 7 mm and larger are unlikely to pass spontaneously and require some type of surgical procedure, such as the following:
Stent placement
Percutaneous nephrostomy
Extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy
Ureteroscopy
Percutaneous nephrostolithotomy
Open nephrostomy
