  Purpose

This study will assess improvement in the percentage of spontaneous stone passage for distal ureteral calculi for alfuzosin compared to placebo, decrease of pain and narcotic/analgesic use associated with stone passage, decrease of the time to spontaneous stone passage, shift in the size distribution of stones passed towards larger sizes.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age =>18
  • <8mm ureteral calculus below the pelvic brim identified by non-contrast CT scan and/or intravenous pyelogram

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subject with know hypersensitivity to Alfuzosin hydrochloride or any component of Alfuzosin hydrochloride tablets
  • Pregnant/Nursing females
  • Solitary kidney
  • Renal insufficiency (Creatinine>1.8)
