This is a letter to the editor in which the author emphasizes the advantages of SWL in terms of non-invasiveness, low rate of complications and patient acceptance. If SWL is presented to the patients in a fair way rather than to describe the method as a "trial", it is likely that a majority of patients would prefer a non-invasive, non-anaesthesia requiring procedure with the lowest rate of complications, even if, in some cases, repeated sessions would be necessary.
