A comparative study of three different citrate combinations of litholytic action


Three different combinations — the Eisenberg solution, Uralyt-U and Magurlit — have been compared for their litholytic effect on urate calculi in a homogeneous patient material.

Magurlit and Uralyt-U have been found superior to the Eisenberg solution, insofar as they are dispensed in a hygienic form easy to handle and require for the production of the litholytic pH levels a shorter time than does the Eisenberg solution. In opposition to other citrate combinations, Magurlit may be used with success even if the urate calculus contains an additional component, unless its distribution is unfavourable and its proportion exceeds 15 to 20%.
