Although ESWL is a non-invasive and safe procedure compared to other treatment modalities, it may also cause complications such as hemorrhage, steinstrasse
, renal hematoma, infection, and flank pain.
The most common complications of SWL are minor, such as renal colic or "steinstrasse
" and not exceeding 7%.
(5) A study conducted on paediatric population however used DJ stents for the stones larger than 13 mm and found this prevented steinstrasse
. (6) In the stented patients, the clearance rates were not significantly different between those stented one week prior to ESWL and those stented after the ESWL procedure in this study.

In addition, based on the available evidence, stents do not appear to decrease the risk of steinstrasse
or infection following SWL.
Objective: To determine the effect of Tamsulosin, as adjunctive medical therapy after Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy for renal stones on rate of stone clearance, clearance time, pain intensity during stone clearance, steinstrasse
formation and auxiliary surgical intervention required.
, the accumulation of ureteric stone fragments causing a ureteric blockage, mostly occurs after treatment for renal stones (by surgery or shock wave lithotripsy--SWL) and is often transient and asymptomatic.
