Renal lithiasis is a public health problem It affects 10 of the French population, with a ratio of 2 men to 1 woman and an average age of 40 It is a recurrent pathology, with an estimated rate of 50 at 5 years and 70 at 10 years It is responsible for 1 to 2 emergency room admissions due to the renal colic it generates.
