Round Table Discussion on Secondary Lithiasis

  • D. P. Griffith
Conference paper


DR GRIFFITH: Our Round Table will focus on secondary stone formation. DR WERNESS (ROCHESTER, Ma. USA) has presented an overview of triamterene stones. Now our discussion will target upon infection stones. There seems to be a general consensus that the bacterial enzyme urease is primarily responsible for struvite and carbonate apatite stones in humans.
