Abstract

The use of drugs to prevent recurrent kidney stone formation is largely empirical1. In this respect, thiazides2 and phosphate supplements have been found to be more successful than an increased fluid intake alone. Allopurinol is effective in patients suffering from hyperuricosuria and calcium oxalate (CaOx) stones. However, more than 10% of patients continue to form stones, in spite of medication1,2.
