Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

This review will ask the following: does medical treatment with alpha-blockers compared to other pharmacotherapy or placebo impact on stone clearance rate, in adult patients presenting with symptoms of ureteral stones less than 10 mm confirmed by imaging? Other clinically relevant outcomes such as stone expulsion time, need for surgical intervention or hospitalisation, pain scores or analgesic use, and adverse effects will be explored.
