Studies on Urine Composition in Patients with Calcium Oxalate Stone Disease
The recurrent formation of calcium oxalate (CaOx) stones might be prevented by appropriate medical measures1,2 A number of urinary risk factors for stone formation have been identified, which are affected in different ways by the currently available forms of treatment. It appears reasonable to assume that the choice of medical treatment should be determined by the biochemical findings in the individual patient. For this reason it is necessary to have a routine programme for biochemical evaluation of stone-formers. In this paper we present the results from studies on urine composition in more than 700 patients with CaOx stone disese.
