Materials and Methods
Conservative treatment of lower ureteral stones is a Between the years 2004-2007, 67 patients (average and mean Stone expulsion rate was 84% at one month (56 patients). preferred option for small non obstructing or impacted age 44 and 43 years, 55 men, 12 women) diagnosed with Kaplan Meier curve demonstrated a significant better stone stones. Pharmacotherapy aimed to enhance stone expulsion expulsion rate in the combined treatment arm (log rank test rates had been previously studied. Alpha-blockers can be Institutional review board approved the study. All patients P=0.002). Multivariate analysis found only the type of used as muscle relaxants for the lower urinary tract. signed an informed consent.

Previous studies demonstrated 30% increased Using student T test we found patients treated with spontaneous stone passage rates in patients treated with Rowatinex had significantly smaller stones than patients Alpha1-adrenergic receptor antagonist for ureterovesical treated with Alfuzosin. No other significant differences and distal ureteral stones. Other agents used to facilitate between the study arms were found (table 1). Kaplan Meier stone expulsion rates are terpenes.
