AIM The aim of the present study was to investigate the composition of urinary tract stones in patients from Okinawa, the most southern island group of Japan. METHODS The study was conducted by 12 hospitals in Okinawa. A total of 1816 urinary tract calculi were obtained from 1816 patients (1323 males; 493 females). The patients had a mean age of 53 +/-(More)
Migration of metal clips into the urinary tract is rare. We present a case in which migration of a metal clip into the urinary bladder occurred after retropubic radical prostatectomy. A 75-year-old man, who had undergone retropubic radical prostatectomy three years before, presented with painful micturition and gross hematuria. Radiography and cystoscopy(More)
Dietary oxalate plays a very important role in the formation of calcium oxalate stones, and dietary intake of calcium may decrease oxalate absorption and its subsequent urinary excretion. The purpose of the present study was to determine the effect on urinary oxalate excretion of an acute oral calcium load, standard milk, or high-calcium low-fat milk(More)
We studied whether urinary oxalate excretion after an acute oral load of oxalic acid is influenced by concomitant administration of calcium in rats. Male Wistar rats weighing approximately 180 g were divided into six groups of five animals each. After inducing anesthesia, the animals were orally (via a gastrostomy) given 110 μmol of oxalic acid along with(More)
BACKGROUND To compare urinary oxalate excretion after the oral administration of oxalic acid, disodium oxalate, or calcium oxalate in rats. METHODS Male Wistar rats were divided into four groups of six rats each and were intravenously hydrated with normal saline, and then were administered normal saline (control group), 10 mg of oxalic acid, equimolar(More)
PURPOSE Dietary intake of calcium or dairy products has been shown to decrease urinary oxalate excretion by limiting its intestinal absorption. However, not enough attention has been given to whether there is any benefit from altering the schedule of ingesting calcium and oxalate. Therefore, we investigated the effects of changes in the timing of calcium(More)
The effects of an intravenous hydroxyproline load on endogenous oxalogenesis were compared in rats fed a standard diet or a vitamin B6-deficient diet. Twelve male Wistar rats were randomized to two groups and were fed either a standard diet (control group) or a vitamin B6-deficient diet for 3 weeks. Then the animals were intravenously administered 100 mg(More)
We studied the effects of an intravenous hydroxypyruvate load on endogenous oxalogenesis in rats receiving a standard diet or a vitamin-B6-deficient diet. Twelve male Wistar rats were randomized to two groups and were fed either a standard diet or a vitamin-B6-deficient diet for 3 weeks. Then the animals received an intravenous infusion of 100 mg/ml (960.6(More)
Various studies have suggested that potassium depletion leads to acidosis and hypocitraturia. In Northeastern Thailand, for example, mild hypokalemia and mild hyperoxaluria are observed in most stone formers. However, there are limited reports about the direct link between potassium depletion and the formation of urinary stones, most of which are calcium(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the antilithic effect of Orthosiphon grandiflorus, Hibiscus sabdariffa and Phyllanthus amarus extracts on known risk factors for calcium oxalate stones in rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS We divided 30 male Wistar rats into 5 equal groups. Controls were fed a standard diet and the remaining groups received a 3% glycolate diet for 4 weeks(More)
