Urolithiasis is referred to as kidney stone and is a condition that is characterized by presence of a calculi or a solid piece material in the urinary tract of an individual. These solid mass commonly known as kidney stone is typically formed in the renal area that is eliminated from the body through the urine stream. The stones that are smaller in size may pass off the body without any symptoms, however, lumps larger than 5 millimeters in size can lead to blockage of the ureter that may cause severe pain in the abdominal area and lower back.
This may result in symptoms that includes pain during urination, vomiting or blood in the urine. Urolithiasis is caused due to combination of environmental and genetic factors. It can also be caused due various factors such as obesity, hyperparathyroidism, and high urine calcium levels.
Rising incidence of chronic kidney diseases is one of the major factors responsible for growth of global urolithiasis management devices market. According to the National Kidney Foundation 2016, around 10% of the global population is affected by chronic kidney diseases, and over 2 million people worldwide are receiving treatment for this disease. According to the World Health Organization 2014, one in every 20 people develop kidney stone at some point in their lives.
