Abstract

Nephrolithiasis leading to renal colic is the most common nonobstetric cause of abdominal pain in pregnancy, necessitating hospitalization. There are several physiologic and anatomical changes in pregnancy that lead to increased propensity for stone formation. The proposed talk will include a review of these changes, the effect of disease on pregnancy, preferred imaging modalities in pregnancy and management considerations, with special reference to interventions in the light of pregnancy safety.
