Kidney stones are very common urological problems. The incidence of kidney stones is rising with an estimated global prevalence of 10% to 15%. In the United States, approximately 13% of men and 7% women will develop a kidney stone throughout their lifetime. Recently, guidelines by American Urological Association (AUA) and American College of Physicians (ACP) for management of kidney stones have been published. In addition, a few meta-analyses on kidney stones in this year of 2014 have provided an important data on treatment and epidemiology of kidney stones. The important findings of meta-analyses on this topic in the year of 2014 were summarized in this brief review. Journal of Nature and Science, 1(1):e30, 2015.
