Epidemiological Aspects of Urolithiasis in a German County
Factors other than those measured in the laboratory may be important for stone formation1−7 Using a routine laboratory program8, more than 1200 stone patients were investigated over 3 years. Additional information concerning the age, sex, occupation, education and stone history of the patients was collected. The majority of stone formers in the Marburg area within a set time have been recorded. Statistics were provided by the local records department9 and stone incidence was calculated from their records and from the urology clinic records.
