Struvite Staghorn Lithiasis
Struvite staghorn calculi grow rapidly, easily recur and quickly impair renal function. In this report we consider the incidence and the clinical and radiologic aspects of this condition, based on our experience with one hundred patients. We also discuss the formation, evolution and medical and surgical treatment with particular reference to renal cooling, diagnostic procedures and the use of acetohydroxamic acid.
