Abstract

ABSTRACT
Background: Ureteric stone is a common condition a urologist has to deal with. Ureteric stones can be dealt conservatively
as well as by surgical/endoscopic interventions. Prediction of spontaneous expulsion of ureteric stones early
at the presentation by using inflammatory markers like C-reactive protein (CRP) would be extremely helpful in the
management, as it could avoid unnecessary conservative management and elect for intervention at the outset
