Conference paper


Only few prospective studies are available on calcium oxalate stone formers1−4. In 1976 a stone clinic was established in our department. Some of the questions arising at that time were: should single oxalate stone formers (SSF) undergo a complete metabolic check-up or not and which form of prophylaxis should they receive? How do recurrent stone formers (RSF) comply with the advice of a long-term treatment with a specific medication and how high is the recurrence rate? To answer these questions, a 5-year prospective study was started in 1977 (Table 1).
