Abstract

The high recurrence rate of calcium oxalate (CaOx) stones makes prophylactic treatment desirable. Available forms of medical treatment are directed toward the correction of one or several CaOx risk factors. Although prophylactic treatment with thiazides has been used for at least 20 years, reports on the clinical efficacy and the biochemical effects are contradictory. For a rational choice of therapy, it might be necessary to define biochemically those patients in whom thiazide treatment will be most efficient.
