The Relation between Relative Supersaturation and Crystal Aggregation in Urine — An Sem Study and a Computerized Calculation of the Ion Equilibrium
Using a Coulter Counter technique Robertson et al.1, 2 have shown that the urine of stone-formers contains crystals of calcium oxalate which are larger and more aggregated than those in normal urine. There is, moreover, a relationship between crystalluria and stone recurrence rate.
