An ancient civilization, known as early as 2000 B.C. The Persian Empire was founded by Cyrus the Great (550-529 B.C.) and for 200 years, from 550 to 331 B.C., the Persians ruled the ancient world from India to Egypt. The territory west of India was called Persis by the Greeks who later called the entire empire Persia. In 331 B.C. the Persian wars against the Greeks ended disastrously under the counterattacks by Alexander the Great. The name Persia in modern times for the modern country was changed to Iran in 1935.

Urinary outputs of oxalate, calcium, and magnesium in children with intestinal disorders. Potential cause of renal calculi. (1/762)

24-hour urinary outputs of oxalate, calcium, and magnesium have been determined in a total of 62 children aged 3 months to 17 years who fell into the following groups: (i) 16 normal controls, (ii) 3 with primary hyperoxaluria, (iii) 9 with small and/or large intestinal resections, (iv) 9 with untreated coeliac disease, (v) 5 with pancreatic dysfunction, and (vi) a miscellaneous group of 20 children with a variety of intestinal disorders. Taken as a whole, 58% of patients with intestinal disorders had hyperoxaluria, and of these 7% had urinary outputs of oxalate which fell within the range seen in primary hyperoxaluria. The proportion of children with hyperoxaluria in the different diagnostic groups was as follows: intestinal resections (78%), coeliac disease (67%), pancreatic dysfunction (80%), and miscellaneous (45%). 35% of the patients with hyperoxaluria had hypercalciuria, whereas magnesium excretion was normal in all subjects studied. In 2 patients treatment of the underlying condition was accompanied by a return of oxalate excretion to normal. These results indicate that hyperoxaluria and hypercalciuria are common in children with a variety of intestinal disorders, and that such children may be at risk of developing renal calculi without early diagnosis and treatment.  (+info)

Renal stones and urinary infection: a study of antibiotic treatment. (2/762)

Twenty-two patients in whom renal calculi and urinary infection were closely associated were studied over two to five years. Four patients had previously had stones surgically removed, and five underwent pyelolithotomy during the course of the study. Urinary infection was treated with an appropriate antibacterial agent, and treatment was followed by long-term prophylaxis, usually with cotrimoxazole. A sterile urine was maintained for long periods in all these patients. In four patients, however, apparent stone growth occurred while the urine was sterile. On entering the study 21 of the 22 patients complained of symptoms. After treatment 19 of the 20 patients who were still attending were symptom-free. Six of the 22 patients entered the study with raised levels of serum creatinine; levels fell in four and remained raised in two. This antibacterial regimen, either alone or after surgery, will usually relieve symptoms and may prevent deterioration of renal function.  (+info)

Intake of vitamins B6 and C and the risk of kidney stones in women. (3/762)

Urinary oxalate is an important determinant of calcium oxalate kidney stone formation. High doses of vitamin B6 may decrease oxalate production, whereas vitamin C can be metabolized to oxalate. This study was conducted to examine the association between the intakes of vitamins B6 and C and risk of kidney stone formation in women. The relation between the intake of vitamins B6 and C and the risk of symptomatic kidney stones were prospectively studied in a cohort of 85,557 women with no history of kidney stones. Semiquantitative food-frequency questionnaires were used to assess vitamin consumption from both foods and supplements. A total of 1078 incident cases of kidney stones was documented during the 14-yr follow-up period. A high intake of vitamin B6 was inversely associated with risk of stone formation. After adjusting for other dietary factors, the relative risk of incident stone formation for women in the highest category of B6 intake (> or =40 mg/d) compared with the lowest category (<3 mg/d) was 0.66 (95% confidence interval, 0.44 to 0.98). In contrast, vitamin C intake was not associated with risk. The multivariate relative risk for women in the highest category of vitamin C intake (> or =1500 mg/d) compared with the lowest category (<250 mg/d) was 1.06 (95% confidence interval, 0.69 to 1.64). Large doses of vitamin B6 may reduce the risk of kidney stone formation in women. Routine restriction of vitamin C to prevent stone formation appears unwarranted.  (+info)

Nucleation of calcium oxalate crystals by albumin: involvement in the prevention of stone formation. (4/762)

BACKGROUND: Urine is supersaturated in calcium oxalate, which means that it will contain calcium oxalate crystals that form spontaneously. Their size must be controlled to prevent retention in ducts and the eventual development of a lithiasis. This is achieved, in part, by specific inhibitors of crystal growth. We investigated whether promoters of crystal nucleation could also participate in that control, because for the same amount of salt that will precipitate from a supersaturated solution, increasing the number of crystals will decrease their average size and facilitate their elimination. METHODS: Albumin was purified from commercial sources and from the urine of healthy subjects or idiopathic calcium stone formers. Its aggregation properties were characterized by biophysical and biochemical techniques. Albumin was then either attached to several supports or left free in solution and incubated in a metastable solution of calcium oxalate. Kinetics of calcium oxalate crystallization were determined by turbidimetry. The nature and efficiency of nucleation were measured by examining the type and number of neoformed crystals. RESULTS: Albumin, one of the most abundant proteins in urine, was a powerful nucleator of calcium oxalate crystals in vitro, with the polymers being more active than monomers. In addition, nucleation by albumin apparently led exclusively to the formation of calcium oxalate dihydrate crystals, whereas calcium oxalate monohydrate crystals were formed in the absence of albumin. An analysis of calcium oxalate crystals in urine showed that the dihydrate form was present in healthy subjects and stone formers, whereas the monohydrate, which is thermodynamically more stable and constitutes the core of most calcium oxalate stones, was present in stone formers only. Finally, urinary albumin purified from healthy subjects contained significantly more polymers and was a stronger promoter of calcium oxalate nucleation than albumin from idiopathic calcium stone formers. CONCLUSIONS: Promotion by albumin of calcium oxalate crystallization with specific formation of the dihydrate form might be protective, because with rapid nucleation of small crystals, the saturation levels fall; thus, larger crystal formation and aggregation with subsequent stone formation may be prevented. We believe that albumin may be an important factor of urine stability.  (+info)

Temporal changes in mRNA expression for bikunin in the kidneys of rats during calcium oxalate nephrolithiasis. (5/762)

Inter-alpha-inhibitor and other bikunin-containing proteins are synthesized in relatively large quantities by the liver. These proteins function as Kunitz-type serine protease inhibitors and appear capable of inhibiting calcium oxalate (CaOx) crystallization in vitro. Preliminary studies have shown that renal tubular epithelial cells synthesize bikunin in response to CaOx challenge. To examine this response in vivo, a sensitive reverse transcription-quantitative competitive template-PCR was developed to detect and quantify poly(A)+ -tailed bikunin mRNA expression in kidney tissue from normal rats and rats developing CaOx nephrolithiasis after challenge with ethylene glycol. Bikunin mRNA expression in rat liver tissue was assessed as a positive control. The expression of bikunin mRNA in liver did not differ significantly between normal control rats and experimental rats with induced hyperoxaluria and renal CaOx crystallization. In contrast, there were significant temporal increases in the levels of bikunin mRNA expression in rat kidneys during CaOx nephrolithiasis after challenge with ethylene glycol. Urinary excretion of bikunin-containing proteins seemed to increase concomitantly. These findings indicate an association between the induction of hyperoxaluria/CaOx nephrolithiasis and the expression of the bikunin gene in rat kidneys.  (+info)

Suggestive evidence for a susceptibility gene near the vitamin D receptor locus in idiopathic calcium stone formation. (6/762)

Calcium is the principal crystalline constituent in up to 80% of kidney stones. Epidemiologic studies have suggested that genetic predisposition plays a major role in the etiology of this condition. This study evaluates by a candidate-gene approach whether the vitamin D receptor (VDR) locus on chromosome 12q12-14 is implicated in idiopathic hypercalciuria and calcium nephrolithiasis in a cohort of 47 French Canadian pedigrees. These comprised 54 sibships with a total of 303 pairs of siblings concordant for > or =1 stone episode. Evidence is provided for linkage to nephrolithiasis with microsatellite marker D12S339 (near the VDR locus, P = 0.01), as well as with flanking markers (D12S1663: P = 0.03 and D12S368: P = 0.01). Inclusion of unaffected sibs in the analyses also supported evidence for linkage. Quantitative trait linkage analysis of urinary calcium excretion yielded linkage to some, but not all, markers. This appears to be the first study to suggest linkage for idiopathic calcium stone formation.  (+info)

Resistive indices in the evaluation of infants with obstructive and nonobstructive pyelocaliectasis. (7/762)

Diagnosing obstructive uropathy by renal resistive indices calculated from duplex Doppler sonographic waveforms has been supported as well as challenged in the radiology literature relating to adults. Despite reports of normally higher resistive indices in children as compared to adults, two studies have documented high sensitivity and specificity of renal Doppler sonography in the diagnosis of obstructive uropathy in children, using the same discriminatory criterion of a resistive index of 0.7 or greater as used in adults. We evaluated 43 infants with significant or bilateral pyelocaliectasis secondary to both obstructive and unobstructive uropathy and found no significant difference in the mean resistive indices or the mean difference in resistive indices of two kidneys in one patient. We conclude that Doppler sonography in infants has no value in differentiating obstructive from nonobstructive pyelocaliectasis.  (+info)

Essential arterial hypertension and stone disease. (8/762)

BACKGROUND: Cross-sectional studies have shown that nephrolithiasis is more frequently found in hypertensive patients than in normotensive subjects, but the pathogenic link between hypertension and stone disease is still not clear. METHODS: Between 1984 and 1991, we studied the baseline stone risk profile, including supersaturation of lithogenic salts, in 132 patients with stable essential hypertension (diastolic blood pressure of more than 95 mm Hg) without stone disease and 135 normotensive subjects (diastolic blood pressure less than 85 mm Hg) without stone disease who were matched for age and sex (controls). Subsequently, both controls and hypertensives were followed up for at least five years to check on the eventual formation of kidney stones. RESULTS: Baseline urine levels in hypertensive males were different from that of normotensive males with regards to calcium (263 vs. 199 mg/day), magnesium (100 vs. 85 mg/day), uric acid (707 vs. 586 mg/day), and oxalate (34.8 vs. 26.5 mg/day). Moreover, the urine of hypertensive males was more supersaturated for calcium oxalate (8.9 vs. 6.1) and calcium phosphate (1.39 vs. 0.74). Baseline urine levels in hypertensive females were different from that of normotensive females with regards to calcium (212 vs. 154 mg/day), phosphorus (696 vs. 614 mg/day), and oxalate (26.2 vs. 21.7 mg/day), and the urine of hypertensive females was more supersaturated for calcium oxalate (7.1 vs. 4.8). These urinary alterations were only partially dependent on the greater body mass index in hypertensive patients. During the follow-up, 19 out of 132 hypertensive patients and 4 out of 135 normotensive patients had stone episodes (14.3 vs. 2.9%, chi-square 11.07, P = 0.001; odds ratio 5.5, 95% CI, 1.82 to 16.66). Of the 19 stone-former hypertensive patients, 12 formed calcium calculi, 5 formed uric acid calculi, and 2 formed nondetermined calculi. Of the urinary factors for lithogenous risk, those with the greatest predictive value were supersaturation of calcium oxalate for calcium calculi and uric acid supersaturation for uric acid calculi. CONCLUSIONS: A significant percentage of hypertensive subjects has a greater risk of renal stone formation, especially when hypertension is associated with excessive body weight. Higher oxaluria and calciuria as well as supersaturation of calcium oxalate and uric acid appear to be the most important factors. Excessive weight and consumption of salt and animal proteins may also play an important role.  (+info)

For people with hyperuricosuria and calcium stones, allopurinol is one of the few treatments that have been shown to reduce kidney stone recurrences. Allopurinol interferes with the production of uric acid in the liver. The drug is also used in people with gout or hyperuricemia (high serum uric acid levels). Dosage is adjusted to maintain a reduced urinary excretion of uric acid. Serum uric acid level at or below 6 mg/100 ml) is often a therapeutic goal. Hyperuricemia is not necessary for the formation of uric acid stones; hyperuricosuria can occur in the presence of normal or even low serum uric acid. Some practitioners advocate adding allopurinol only in people in whom hyperuricosuria and hyperuricemia persist, despite the use of a urine-alkalinizing agent such as sodium bicarbonate or potassium citrate. Treatment. Stone size influences the rate of spontaneous stone passage. For example, up to 98% of small stones (less than 5 mm (0.2 in) in diameter) may pass spontaneously through urination ...

Posted 2:11 pm, February 13, 2020, by Kim Hudson. Kidney stones are most commonly formed when there are elevated levels of calcium in the blood. Causes .
Recommendations to prevent recurrent kidney stones include increased fluid intake to achieve a urine output of at least 2 liters per day.
Kidney stones (calculi) are a common and painful medical problem. Kidney stones build up from a chemical imbalance in the urine. They may be smooth and rounded or make an uneven of the inside of the kidney, completely filling up the small ducts. The irregular stones are sometimes called staghorn because of their shape, or infection stones because they happen during urinary tract infections. Stones become a problem when they leave the kidney and pass through the ureter, causing cramps, pain, nausea, vomiting, and sometimes, blood in the urine. Stones may become stuck in the ureter, causing severe pain or infection.. Kidney stones are most often seen in middle age adults. They are more common in men than in women. They tend to come back repeatedly.. Many factors contribute to the development of kidney stones; heredity, dietary factors, and reasons unknown to modern medicines.. The renal calculi can cause severe pain as they pass from the kidney and travel down the ureter towards the bladder and ...
Kidney is the main organ of body which has no replacement. When this part of the body is in poor or serious unhealthy condition, a real trouble is seen in human beings. Kidney stone is one of the major and most common diseases whose ratio is increasing day by day and it is also not easy for the kidney stone patients to find out this disease because many people with kidney stone often not experience any symptom of it. The main reason is the size of stone which can be expelled out of the body along with urine naturally if the size of the stone is less than 0.7cm in diameter. In case, the stone size is bigger than 0.7cm it may definitely lead to hydronephrosis and a serious infection. We say that kidney stone highly depends on the size of stone because if the stone is large, it can lead to urination and obstacles blocking in the urinary tract.. Kidney stone, sometimes referred as renal calculi which come from Latin word meaning kidney pebbles. As discussed above, in the early stages, Kidney stones ...
A second type of kidney stone is made of uric acid. These stones are much less common than calcium stones. Uric acid stones occur because you have too much uric acid in your urine.

A 55-year-old man in China underwent close to three hours of surgery after a CT scan revealed his system was completely packed with kidney stones. The patient, identified only as Mr. He, had an astounding 420-plus kidney stones removed. Now, his doctor believes his tofu-rich diet is to blame.. The shocking discovery of hundred of kidney stones was made after Mr. He complained of terrible stomach pains. He was booked for an emergency operation because his condition left him unable to urinate, and doctors feared they would have to remove the kidney entirely if the stones werent removed immediately.. Kidney stones are caused by a buildup of calcium, which hardens in the kidney and prevents normal functions. In this case, Mr. Hes doctors believed that his daily intake of tofu caused the massive blockages.. According to Dr. Lindsey Mcilvena, a member of SuperFoods Medical Advisory Board, Mr. Hes kidney stones were likely composed of calcium oxalate or calcium phosphate, as 80% of stones contain ...
Patients who have had kidney stones are very likely to experience future kidney stones. Therefore, we may recommend changes to diet and increasing daily fluid intake to help prevent this recurrence.. A simple and important lifestyle change in preventing stones is to drink more liquids: water is best. Someone who tends to form kidney stones should try to drink enough liquids throughout the day to produce at least 2 quarts of urine every 24 hours.. In the past, people prone to producing calcium stones were told to avoid dairy products and other foods with high calcium content. However, recent studies show that foods high in calcium may help prevent calcium stones. Taking calcium pills does not have the same effect. In fact, calcium pills may increase the risk of developing kidney stones.. You may be told to avoid food with added vitamin D and certain types of antacids that have a calcium base. Someone who has highly acidic urine may need to eat less meat, fish and poultry.. ...
The outlook for kidney stones is very positive, although this is a risk of recurrence (the stones coming back). Many kidney stones pass on their own over time without needing treatment from your healthcare provider. Medications and surgical treatments to remove larger kidney stones are generally very successful and involve little recovery time.. It is possible to get kidney stones multiple times throughout your life. If you find you keep developing kidney stones, your healthcare provider may work with you to discover why the stones happen. Once the cause is found, you may be able to make lifestyle changes to prevent future stones from forming.. ...

Men are affected 2-3 times more than women. It is more common in whites, followed by hispanics, asians, and african-americans. It is uncommon before age 20 but peaks in the fourth to sixth decades of life. It has a higher prevalence in hot, arid, or dry climates (mountains, desert, or tropical areas). However, genetic factors and diet may influence this disease. Heat exposure and dehydration are occupational risk factors for kidney stone disease. Also overweight and high body mass index are directed related to kidney stone disease. Despite this risk factors, the most important risk factor is dehydration, so a high fluid intake can prevent urolithiasis.. ...

In medical terms, kidney stones called Nephrolithiasis or renal calculi. Kidney stones are a condition with one or more stones in the pelvis or calyces of the kidney or in the ureter channel. The formation of kidney stones can occur in any part of the urinary tract, but usually formed in two parts most of the kidney, that is in tubs kidney (renal pelvis) and renal Calix. Stones can be formed from calcium, phosphate, or a combination of uric acid is usually dissolved in the urine ...
If you have been diagnosed with kidney stones or renal calculi, you would surely have tried various alternatives to get relief from the pain and get rid of the stone....
Kidney stones are made of salts and minerals in the urine that stick together to form small pebbles. They may form when the normal balance of water, salts, minerals, and other substances found in urine changes. How this balance changes determines the type of kidney stone you have. Most kidney stones are...
To determine if medical therapy affects long-term clinical outcomes in uric acid stone formers (UASF).We identified 53 UASF who had complete stone clearance following stone procedure by computed tomography (CT) and had ≥1 post-operative 24-hour urine collection and a clinical follow-up ≥6 months with a surveillance CT scan.
There are different types of kidney stones and none of them are any fun to have. A kidney diet for treating kidney stones and other kidney problems will be advised by your physician or dietician based on the type of stones you have. The percentage of the occurrence of kidney stones has risen over the past three decades and continues to increase. Stones are more likely to occur among men than women. Kidney stone occurrence risk may increase in patients suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, obesity, kidney cysts, and chronic diarrhea. Doctors report that the number of kidney stones among children is also on the rise.. A kidney stone is formed from chemicals present in the urine. Various wastes are dissolved in urine, and when there is an excess of waste and a lack of liquid, a hard crystal mass forms. Other elements are attracted to the crystals and they join to form a hard mass that will grow in size until it is eliminated from the body. In a normal person, the kidney ...

Some Easy Treatments For Kidney Stone Is:-. 1. Prevention is always the preferable way to treat kidney stones. Remaining well hydrated keeps the urine dilute and helps prevent kidney stones from forming.. 2. Those who have never passed a kidney stone may not appreciate the severity of the symptoms. There is little a person can do at home to control the debilitating pain and vomiting that can occur with a kidney stone other than to seek emergency care. If this is the first episode and no previous diagnosis has been established, it is important to be seen by a health-care provider to confirm the diagnosis.. 3. For those who have a history of stones, home therapy may be appropriate. Most kidney stones, given time, will pass on their own, and treatment is directed toward symptom control. The patient should be instructed to drink plenty of oral fluids. Ibuprofen may be used as an anti-inflammatory medication if there is no contraindication to its use. If further pain medication is needed, the ...
This program explains kidney stones. The program includes the following sections: what is the anatomy of the kidneys, what are kidney stones, what are the symptoms of kidney stones, how are kidney stones diagnosed, how are kidney stones treated and how can kidney stones be prevented.
Anyone who has ever had a kidney stone knows that it is an extremely painful condition, especially if the stone is stuck in the urethra, the channel leading from the kidney to the bladder.. Even when it is in the urinary bladder, the stone must first pass through the urethra. Because men have longer urinary channels, they have a bigger problem with this condition, hence called delivery boy.. This is a natural recipe that helps in dissolving the stones and reducing the unpleasant pain.. What are kidney stones?. Kidney stones are typically the mineral deposit - a form of calcium like calcium oxalate - deposited in the kidneys, which forms small stones as sand inside the kidneys.. The stone may remain in the kidney for weeks, months or even years without causing symptoms. However, if it moves, an extreme pain in the back, hips and bloody, muddy urine may appear.. At that moment, a large amount of fluids is recommended to flush the stone through urination, and analgesics for pain relief. However, ...
WEDNESDAY, May 21, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- When diagnosing kidney stones, using ultrasound instead of CT scans reduces costs as well as patients exposure to radiation, according to new research.. A separate study also found that people with type 2 diabetes who maintain tight blood sugar control can lower their risk for developing kidney stones -- small, solid deposits that form in the kidneys.. Enhancing patient safety and lowering incidence of disease in higher-risk patients are major priorities within the medical community, said Dr. Margaret Pearle, professor of urology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Understanding how to prevent kidney stones combined with further evaluation of the methods used to detect and treat them can only increase the quality of care we strive to deliver patients every day, she said in an American Urological Association news release.. When kidney stones are suspected during an emergency room visit, patients usually undergo imaging ...

If you are suffering from kidney stones, then you have reached the right place. For kidney stones disease and treatment, consider the best in the business.
Tamm-Horsfall protein (TH P) powerfully inhibits calcium oxalate crystal aggregation, but structurally abnormal TH Ps from recurrent calcium stone formers may promote crystal aggregation. Therefore, i
Genetic hypercalciuric stone-forming (GHS) rats have improved intestinal Ca absorption, decreased renal tubule Ca reabsorption and low bone mass, all of which are mediated at least in part by elevated tissue levels of the vitamin D receptor (VDR). identify VDR binding to only one of several potential binding sites within the promoter regions. This negative region also mediates suppressor reporter gene activity. The molecular mechanisms underlying the down-regulation of by 1,25(OH)2D3 were studied in vitro in BMSCs and UMR-106 cells using the DNA methyltransferase inhibitor 5-aza-2-deoxycytidine (DAC) and the histone deacetylase inhibitor trichostatin A (TSA). Both DAC and TSA activate expression in combination with 1,25(OH)2D3. Bisulfite DNA pyrosequencing reveals 1,25(OH)2D3 to completely hypermethylate a single CpG site SCH772984 inhibitor in the same promoter area identified with the ChIP and reporter gene assays. ChIP assays present that 1 also,25(OH)2D3 can raise the repressive histone tag ...
These data are from all stones of 1201 patients who harbored no systemic disease as a cause of stones and whose stones contained CaOx and no uric acid, cystine, struvite or uncommon elements like drugs. For each patient we calculated the fraction of crystals that were calcium phosphate (CaP); the rest, given our exclusions, had to be CaOx.. But these were not ICSF, but idiopathic calcium stone formers because we included those with brushite in stones in order to compare HA and BR distributions.. For clarity we fitted the distribution of % CaP in stones from each patient as a continuous curve; the underlying data, remember, is the CaP% for a single patient.. At the left, the distribution peaks just above 2 % CaP meaning 98% or more CaOx.. The inset in the left panel uses a log transformation to expand the low range. A sizable peak of patients have less than 2% CaP (98% CaOx), and a huge fraction of patients have less than 10%.. This is clearly seen in the right hand panel. A large peak of ...
Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) is a noninvasive technique for the removal of kidney stones. Most ESWL is carried out when the stone is present near the renal pelvis. ESWL involves the use of a lithotriptor machine to deliver externally applied, focused, high-intensity pulses of ultrasonic energy to cause fragmentation of a stone over a period of around 30-60 minutes. Following its introduction in the United States in February 1984, ESWL was rapidly and widely accepted as a treatment alternative for renal and ureteral stones.[89] It is currently used in the treatment of uncomplicated stones located in the kidney and upper ureter, provided the aggregate stone burden (stone size and number) is less than 20 mm (0.8 in) and the anatomy of the involved kidney is normal.[90][91] For a stone greater than 10 mm (0.4 in), ESWL may not help break the stone in one treatment; instead, two or three treatments may be needed. Some 80 to 85% of simple renal calculi can be effectively treated with ...
Kidney stones can be classified according to their chemical composition. Some 64 percent of kidney stones are calcium oxalate stones. 80 percent of kidney stones are based on some calcium compound or other, and 80 percent of calcium-based kidney stones are calcium oxalate stones. Calcium oxalate is a calcium compound that is found in nature, in certain plants, and in deposits left on containers as a result of brewing beer, where its known as beer stones. Beer stones have to be removed by cleaning or they can ruin the flavor of subsequent batches of beer by harboring undesirable microorganisms. Rhubarb leaves have large amounts of calcium oxalate (and should be avoided by people suffering from kidney stones, as should other plants containing significant quantities of this mineral). Aside from brewing and dietary considerations, the main reason calcium oxalate stones are of concern to human beings is that they are the most common type of kidney stone, which is an often painful and sometimes ...
I have already pointed out that calcium phosphate stones are more serious a problem than calcium oxalate stones: they are larger on average, often more numerous, and involve the kidney epithelial cells. Brushite stones are very hard and do not fragment well with shock wave therapy. So conversion is not a good clinical outcome.. An altogether different problem is that treatment may not be the same for idiopathic calcium phosphate and calcium oxalate patients. We treat idiopathic calcium stone formers like you do: fluids, reduced diet oxalate, reduced diet sodium, thiazide diuretic agents to lower urine calcium when it is high, and potassium citrate, and use these modalities in various combinations depending on the situation. All of these treatments are reasonable, and the two drugs each have some RCT support.. But potassium citrate has never been tried in calcium phosphate stone formers per se. Some calcium phosphate stone formers no doubt have been in the three RCT for potassium citrate, but we ...
A Retrograde pyelogram is done to locate the stone in the kidney. With a small 1 centimeter incision in the loin, the Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCN) needle is passed into the pelvis of the kidney. The position of the needle is confirmed by fluoroscopy. A guide wire is passed through the needle into the pelvis. The needle is then withdrawn with the guide wire still inside the pelvis. Over the guide wire the dilators are passed and a working sheath is introduced. A nephroscope is then passed inside and small stones taken out. In case the stone is big it may first have to be crushed using ultrasound probes and then the stone fragments removed. This procedure achieves a better stone-free outcome in the treatment of medium and large stones than shock wave lithrotripsy. The procedure usually requires hospitalization, and most patients resume normal activity within 2 weeks. In percutaneous nephrolithotomy or nephrolithotripsy, the surgeon makes a small incision in your back to remove kidney stones. ...
Seamless and safe removal of large kidney stones continues to be a focus area for healthcare providers. The evolving demand has catalyzed the initiatives taken by medical device manufacturers to launch innovative equipment in the market. For instance, Cogentix Medicals launched the XenX® Stone Management Device to remove kidney stone fragments larger than 1mm. SonoMotion, another key player in the Kidney Stone Management Devices Market, is reinvigorating its non-invasive solutions for kidney stone disease through launch of Break Wave. In a bid to cater to the imminent need for removing large kidney stones safely and effectively, industry-institution collaboration is also gaining ground - the development of PAKAD by Institute of Technical Education (ITE) at Singapore and HCMT Holdings Pte Ltd (HCMT) is a case in point. Sensing the evolving demands in the kidney stone management devices market, it is highly likely that industry-institution collaboration for treating large kidney stones will gain ...
One of the most common conditions that affect your kidneys is kidney stone formation. Most people try their best to make sure that this condition will never affect their kidneys in one way or another. Usually, stones forming in the urinary tract of the person are caused by lack of adequate water consumption as well as consumption of food that is not healthy.. When dissolved minerals collect in the inner kidney lining, this results in kidney stone formation. Such stones look like crystal structures that can range in size from being very small to growing as large as a golf ball.. As what was made mention above, one of the leading causes of kidney stone formation is the inadequate consumption of water. When your body does not have enough supply of water, uric acid will not be diluted properly that will lead to your urine becoming more acidic that will then lead to stones forming in your kidneys. Some of the most common symptoms of kidney stone formation include a burning sensation and bleeding ...
Introductions: Renal stone disease is one of the common urological disorders with prevalence approximately 2-3% in the general population and the incidence in children is increasing at a rate of 4% per year. Miniaturization of endoscopic instruments, minimally invasive endoscopic procedures of mini percutaneous nephrolithotomy (miniPCNL) in children is increasingly used. This study was conducted to assess the outcome of miniPCNL in pediatric population..  Methods: This retrospective study analyzed the outcome of miniPCNL in children below 18 years of age from August 2015 to July 2018 at Patan Hospital, Nepal. Ethical approval was obtained. Outcome was assessed descriptively on stone localization, puncture success, stone clearance, bleeding requiring transfusion, gross hematuria, urosepsis, operative time, hospital stay, mortality and need of second procedures..  Results: A total of 26 patients underwent miniPCNL, mean age 10.8±5.45 years (1-18 years), mean operative time was 122±26.03 ...
Randalls plaque (RP) deposits seem to be consistent among the most common type of kidney stone formers, idiopathic calcium oxalate stone formers. This group forms calcium oxalate renal stones without any systemic symptoms, which contributes to the difficulty of understanding and treating this painful and recurring disease. Thus, the development of an in vitro model system to study idiopathic nephrolithiasis, beginning with RP pathogenesis, can help in identifying how plaques and subsequently stones form. One main theory of RP formation is that calcium phosphate deposits initially form in the basement membrane of the thin loops of Henle, which then fuse and spread into the interstitial tissue, and ultimately make their way across the urothelium, where upon exposure to the urine, the mineralized tissue serves as a nidus for overgrowth with calcium oxalate into a stone ...
We reported a retrospective review of the urinary stone compositions in 12,846 patients. Data on urinary stone compositions analyzed between January 2003 and December 2012 in our center were collected. Infrared spectroscopy was used for stone analysis. Predominant stone component was recorded. Patients were divided into four age groups: 0-18, 19-40, 41-60, and 61-92, and five categories by components. In order to determine the change of stone characteristics with respect to time, data were also divided into two periods, 2003-2007 and 2008-2012. A total of 12,846 stones were included in this study. The age of the patients ranged from 1 to 92 years with 7,736 males and 5,110 females. Stone made of single component was rare, 2.61 %. Calcium oxalate stone was the most common component at 82.56 %. Calcium oxalate and uric acid stones were more common in male than in female. The incidence of calcium phosphate stones and uric acid stones had increased during the past 5 years, while calcium oxalate stones
Other than a physical exam and a review of a patients medical history, diagnosing kidney stones typically involves a series of tests. Blood tests can provide information about kidney health and calcium or uric acid levels. Usually involving urine tests taken over a two-day period, a 24-hour urine collection test may be done to determine the level of stone-forming minerals being produced. X-rays and a CT urogram are among the types of image tests that may be performed to help make a positive diagnosis of kidney stones.. Smaller stones not producing significant symptoms may be treated with pain-relieving medications, encouraging the consumption of more water, and medications called alpha blockers to help relax muscles around the tube that goes from a kidney to the bladder (ureter). Larger and problematic kidney stones may be treated in several ways.. With a procedure known as extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, sound waves are used to break up the stones. With percutaneous nephrolithotomy, ...
GENE SIMMONS SELLS HIS KIDNEY STONE FOR CHARITY. June 4, 2009 Weve heard of people donating their kidneys before, but kidney stones are something we wouldnt wish on anyone! But Gene Simmons has found a way to turn the awful experience that kidney stones are into a positive thing.. The Kiss star has just sold his kidney stone for $15,000 after listing it on eBay. He recently suffered from the ailment, and decided to try and use it to make a little cash.. And before you go knocking the idea, you should know that it was all in the name of charity! Gene says, I passed a kidney stone and I put it on eBay for charity. (I got) $15,000.. We dont know who in their right mind would want something like that as a souvenir, but at least it was for a good cause! ...
The current study evaluates the clinical applications of HU characterization using bone and soft tissue window CT scans in a cohort of patients treated with PCNL.. At present, there is no proven method to differentiate stone types prior to endosurgery or SWL. However, the treatment choice for intrarenal stones is based on stone dimension, location and HUM [18].. Mostafavi et al. has shown the predictive value of HU obtained from CT scans to differentiate uric acid, struvite and calcium oxalate kidney stones, while Dual-Energy CT has been proposed, albeit with controversial results, to improve HU power to predict stone composition [5, 9, 19]. However, this procedure is impractical as it is not available in the majority of the hospitals. Eisner et al. explored the precision of bone and abdomen window scans in measuring ureteral stones that were then spontaneously passed and physically measured. They concluded that the bone window offers a substantially more accurate estimate than the abdomen ...
New research shows that changes in diet and nutrients, when used together, can help prevent kidney stones in adults. Specific changes you should make depend on what type of stone you want to prevent.. Calcium Oxalate Stones. These are the most common types of kidney stone. They can form when your urine is too acidic. Eating foods and drinking beverages that lower the acidity in your urine can help prevent these types of stones. The nutritional supplements potassium citrate, magnesium potassium citrate, and calcium citrate may also help. If the level of calcium in your urine is high, restricting sodium to no more than 2 grams a day is important to prevent calcium oxalate stones. You should avoid too much protein in your diet, as well as too much or too little vitamin D.. Uric Acid Stones. Uric acid stones form in urine and account for approximately 17% of kidney stones. Alkanizing the urine with citrus juice, decreasing protein intake, avoiding beer and alcohol, and reducing fructose intake are ...

We investigated the association between calcium containing nephrolithiasis and genetic variants of ORAI1 gene in Taiwanese patients. Materials and Methods: A case-control study was performed in 136 patients with nephrolithiasis and 500 controls. Five tagging single nucleotide polymorphisms of ORAI1 were selected for genotyping. ORAI1 genotypes were determined ...
Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess the prediction of stone clearance and complications of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) using the STONE nephrolithometry score, assessing stone size, tract length (skin-to-stone distance), degree of obstruction, number of calyces involved and stone essence (density). PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a prospective study of patients undergoing single-tract PCNL while prone, conducted at a university hospital. All patients had non-contrast-enhanced computed tomography within 3 weeks of the procedure. Only patients with a unilateral procedure and radio-opaque stones were included. The five variables of the STONE nephrolithometry score were calculated before the procedure. The stone-free rates were assessed with a plain abdominal film at 4 weeks and complications were graded using the modified Clavien system. RESULTS: In all, 107 patients were included in the final analysis. Overall, 80% of patients were rendered stone-free. Among the individual variables, a larger stone
Kidney stone, scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Kidney stones are primarily formed by crystallization of the mineral salt calcium oxalate from the urine. They are irregular shaped stones called calculi (calculus) and are composed of random oriented columnar monoclinic crystals of calcium oxalate monohydrate (seen here) with peripheral deposits of fine octahedral crystals of calcium oxalate dehydrate. Patches of microcrystalline hydroxyl apatite fill internodal regions. Protein matrices can also be associated with the microcrystalline arrays. The hard stones can cause severe pain as they pass down the ureter (urinary tract). Kidney stones may need to be removed surgically using ultrasound.

A small stone that does not cause symptoms, blockage or infection does not usually need to be treated. Drink plenty of fluids will increase urinary water formation and help throw some stones; If the stone has been wasted, it is no longer necessary to do the treatment immediately. The left colic can be reduced with the narcotic pain reliever medication. Stone in the left pelvis or ureter top part measuring 1 centimeter or less can often be solved by ultrasonic waves (extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, ESWL). The next stone fractions will be discarded in the urinary water. Sometimes a stone is lifted through a small incision in the skin (percutaneous nephrolithotomy, nefrolitotomi perkutaneus), which is followed by ultrasonic treatment. Small stones in the lower part of the ureter can be removed by endoscope that is inserted through the urethra and into the bladder. Uric acid stones are sometimes dissolves gradually in an atmosphere of a urinary alkaline water (e.g. by giving potassium ...

Shock wave lithotripsy has been used for many years now for treatment of kidney stones. This might be old news to some people but i learned about this recently that around 2006-2007, there was a big debate about SWL causing DM and HTN. Results from a retrospective study of 630 patients by researchers at the Mayo Clinic showed a more-than-threefold increased risk of diabetes and a 1.5-fold increased risk of hypertension among patients who underwent SWL 19 years previously compared with a cohort of matched, conservatively treated, nephrolithiasis patients. This was published in the Journal of Urology. ...
Charig et al undertook a historical comparison of success rates in removing kidney stones.2 Open surgery (1972-80) had a success rate of 78% (273/350) while percutaneous nephrolithotomy (1980-5) had a success rate of 83% (289/350), an improvement over the use of open surgery. However, the success rates looked rather different when stone diameter was taken into account. This showed that, for stones of ,2 cm, 93% (81/87) of cases of open surgery were successful compared with just 83% (234/270) of cases of percutaneous nephrolithotomy. Likewise, for stones of ,/=2 cm, success rates of 73% (192/263) and 69% (55/80) were observed for open surgery and percutaneous nephrolithotomy respectively.. The main reason why the success rate reversed is because the probability of having open surgery or percutaneous nephrolithotomy varied according to the diameter of the stones. In observational (nonrandomised) studies comparing treatments it is likely that the initial choice of treatment would have been ...
The kidney stones might be left alone if theyre not causing pain or disease. However, surgical removal of kidney stones is compulsory in cases of recurrent infections in the urine or blockage of the urinary flow in the kidney.. Different processes for kidney stones remedy:. These days, kidney stones removal can be carried out through little or no incisions (cuts), slight discomfort and minimal rest.. Treatment to eliminate kidney stones really are,. Shock wave lithotripsy (SWL). Shock waves have been targeted on the rocks, employing an X-rays or ultrasound to find it. Repeated shots of these shock waves onto the rocks generally cause the rock to break into small pieces, which will then pass out from the urine within a couple of weeks.. ...
Some kidney stones are struvite stones. They can also be called infection stones if they occur with kidney or urinary tract infections (UTIs). These types of kidney stones sometimes are also called staghorn calculi if they grow large enough.. Struvite stones can be serious, because they are often large stones and may occur with an infection.

Approximately one third of patients with recurrent calcium stones have hyperuricosuria as one of their urinary risk factors (2). Increasing the urate concentration of experimental solutions effectively halves the amount of oxalate required to provoke calcium oxalate crystallization and increases the size of particles deposited (3). The pathophysiology of this relationship has been attributed to the ability of uric acid to salt out calcium oxalate. Salting out is simply the ability of an electrolyte, in this case uric acid, to reduce the solubility of a nonelectrolyte, in this case calcium oxalate (4). For the purposes of this definition, nonelectrolytes and electrolytes are salts that have low and high solubilities, respectively.. This phenomenon is distinct from epitaxy, whereby one crystal forms on another. (Although sodium urate can lead to crystallization of calcium oxalate in vitro, such an effect has not been demonstrated to occur in human urine and is now considered unimportant in ...
In the past, surgery for the removal of kidney stones was an open procedure requiring four to six weeks of recovery time. Todays treatment has improved and most procedures can be done on an outpatient basis. The three common procedures are: Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL). This is the most frequently done procedure. Shock waves created outside the body travel through skin and tissue until they hit the dense stones. The stones break into small particles that are easily passed through the urinary system. The procedure requires anesthesia and may be performed on an outpatient basis with a recovery period of a few days.. Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PNL). This procedure is used when a stone is very large or in a location where ESWL cannot be used effectively. The surgeon makes a tiny incision in the back creating a tunnel directly into the kidney. With an instrument called a nephroscope, the surgeon locates and removes the stone. Patients usually stay in the hospital for several days ...
OBJECTIVE To determine the feasibility and safety of performing percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) in high-cardiovascular risk patients remaining on aspirin therapy. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed all PCNLs performed by 3 fellowship-trained endourologists at a single institution between July 2012 and January 2014. All patients remaining on aspirin for imperative indications through the day of surgery were evaluated for surgical outcomes and thromboembolic events. RESULTS Of 281 PCNL procedures performed during the study period, 16 (5.7%) were performed in 14 patients taking aspirin, uninterrupted, through surgery. Mean surgery time was 66 minutes, mean estimated blood loss was 161 mL, and mean length of hospital stay was 2.8 days. All patients were stone free. There were no intraoperative complications. A total of 5 patients experienced a postoperative complication (n = 4, Clavien grade II; n = 1, Clavien grade IIIa). No patient experienced a perioperative thromboembolic or cardiac event. Three
Hypercalciuria, or excessive urinary calcium excretion, occurs in about 5-10% of the population and is the most common identifiable cause of calcium kidney stone disease. Indeed, about 80% of all kidney stones contain calcium, and at least one third of all calcium stone formers are found to have hypercalciuria when tested.
Thiola® helps prevent cystine kidney stone formation in patients who are resistant to changes in diet and high fluid intake by keeping their cystine levels below the line of solubility.
PCNL is the standard treatment of choice for renal stones more than 20 mm and an accepted option of treatment for smaller renal stones [ 1 ]. Though
Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PNL) is a surgery to remove large stones directly from the kidney. The advantage is that even very large stones are removed
RENAL CALICULUS /UROLITHIASIS/KIDNEY STONES / URINARY STONES. When solids and particulate metabolites or salts starts depositing at any level of urinary collecting system it forms renal stones or urolithiasis. Urolithiasis is more common in males than in females. Increased concentration in urine, of the constituents of stones is associated with stone formation.. 1) Calcium Oxalate/Phosphate Stones comprises 75% of every stones.. Its observed that almost 50 % of cases of Calcium Stones that have idiopathic hypercalciuria and doesnt have hypercalcemia.. 10 % of cases calcium stone cases have both hypercalcemia and hypercalciurea. 5% have Enteric(4.5%) or Primary (0.5%) hyperoxaluria. 20% have hyperuricosuria. 15-20% have unknown metabolic anomaly. 2) Struvite Stones (Magnesium, Ammonia, Calcium, Phosphate) usually due to renal infections comprises off 10-15% of all stones.. 3) Uric Acid Stones comprises 6% of all stobe cases 50% of which are associated with hyperuricosuria and/or hyperuricemia ...
Low amounts of calcium in your diet will increase your chances of forming calcium oxalate kidney stones. Many people are afraid to eat calcium because of the name calcium oxalate stones. However, calcium binds oxalate in the intestines. A diet rich in calcium helps reduce the amount of oxalate being absorbed by your body, so stones are less likely to form. Eat calcium rich foods and beverages every day (2 to 3 servings) from dairy foods or other calcium-rich foods.. Also, eating high calcium foods at the same time as high oxalate food is helpful; for example have low fat cheese with a spinach salad or yogurt with berries. If you take a calcium supplement, calcium citrate is the preferred form.. ...
Kidney stones may be from calcium-oxalate, struvite, uric acid, and cysteine.. Scientists have found that calcium-oxalate stones are caused by the food you eat, especially if you get too much through your food. Spinach is the richest source of oxalates. These are also found in rhubarb, beets, nuts, chocolate, tea, wheat bran and strawberries, so you better avoid these foods if you are dealing with recurring kidney stones.. You should also increase your bodys ability to dissolve oxalates so they do not crystalize and form kidney stones. Drink enough water to keep your body hydrated. The amount of water you should drink depends on your weight.. Magnesium, potassium, and B6 can help you relieve your condition. A recent study has shown that participants who took 500mg of magnesium oxide and 5 of potassium-sodium citrate for a week had less oxalate crystals in their urine. These crystals are the first warning sign of kidney stone formation.. If you thought that you should reduce your daily calcium ...
Should you take strontium citrate if you have hypercalciuria (high urine calcium) or a history of kidney stones? Perhaps you should not. A recent study identified strontium in all calcium-based stones, present as strontium apatite. This finding may be critical since apatite is thought to be the initial nidus for calcium stone formation. Strontium is found in small amounts in food and water. The paper does not state if any of the stone formers had taken strontium supplements. I wrote to one of the researchers, the contact person, to find out if he knew the source of the strontium found in the kidney stones. He answered that he did not know if those with elevated strontium in their diet or those with strontium intake (tablets) were the ones with elevated strontium in their stones. What follows is the abstract from the research paper, Strontium Substitution for Calcium in Lithogenesis. Use the link at the end to read the entire paper. ...

Studies of calcium kinetics have been carried out in 31 cases of primary hyperparathyroidism and 25 cases of normocalcemic idiopathic renal calculus, using 47Ca or stable strontium.. An increased bone uptake of tracer was found in 24 of the 31 cases of hyperparathyroidism and in 7 of the 25 cases with idiopathic calculus. The studies were abnormal in 7 out of 9 cases of hyperparathyroidism in which diagnosis proved difficult by more conventional testing.. In those cases of normocalcemic renal stone having accelerated skeletal kinetics, a significant correlation was found between the rate of bone turnover and an increased phosphaturia, ...

INTRODUCTION: The incidence of pediatric nephrolithiasis (kidney stones) has been increasing over the past several years. While environmental factors, such as poor fluid intake, high-salt diet, and obesity, can play a role, underlying metabolic factors account for at least one-third of cases of nephrolithiasis. Nephrolithiasis and related disorders, such as nephrocalcinosis and hypercalciuria, can lead to long-term kidney problems, including renal scarring, acute and chronic kidney disease, decreased renal function, or end-stage renal disease. The best treatment is prevention and is best guided by knowing the underlying cause. The majority of kidney stones are primarily comprised of calcium, and abnormal calcium metabolism and regulation can lead to nephrolithiasis, nephrocalcinosis, and hypercalciuria. Vitamin D is an important factor in calcium regulation in the body. The physiologically active form of vitamin D is 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH)2D), which increases serum calcium by ...
