The possibilities of local dissolution of uric acid calculi with Na hydrocarbonate, K carbonate and lithium carbonate were examinedin vitro. The most promising results were obtained with lithium carbonate. The necessity for studies of the compound in laboratory animals before its use in humans is emphasized.
