A complete world literature review of Quality of Life (QOL) in patients with Kidney Stone Disease (KSD)

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this study was to review the current evidence for quality of life (QOL) in patients with kidney stone disease (KSD).

RECENT FINDINGS: A review of literature from inception to May 2016 for all prospective English language articles on QOL in patients with KSD was done. QOL studies post urological procedures or ureteric stents were excluded. Nine studies (1570 patients) were included of which most (n = 6) used the SF-36 QOL tool. Overall, seven of the nine studies demonstrated a lower QOL in patients with KSD. Bodily pain and general health were significantly lower in patients with KSD compared to their control groups. Patients with KSD have an overall lower QOL with most impact on bodily pain and general health domains. Compared to the scale of patients suffering from KSD, more work needs to be done in measuring QOL both in terms of 'Stone specific' QOL measuring tools and the quality/number of studies in this field.

Abstract

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this study was to review the current evidence for quality of life (QOL) in patients with kidney stone disease (KSD).

RECENT FINDINGS: A review of literature from inception to May 2016 for all prospective English language articles on QOL in patients with KSD was done. QOL studies post urological procedures or ureteric stents were excluded. Nine studies (1570 patients) were included of which most (n = 6) used the SF-36 QOL tool. Overall, seven of the nine studies demonstrated a lower QOL in patients with KSD. Bodily pain and general health were significantly lower in patients with KSD compared to their control groups. Patients with KSD have an overall lower QOL with most impact on bodily pain and general health domains. Compared to the scale of patients suffering from KSD, more work needs to be done in measuring QOL both in terms of 'Stone specific' QOL measuring tools and the quality/number of studies in this field.
