The propensity of urine to promote calcium stone formation was compared in 64 patients with recurrent idiopathic calcium nephrolithiasis and 30 healthy individuals without such a history. The rates of excretion of urine crystalloids, the urine saturation with brushite (CaHPO4-2H2O), the ability of the urine to calcify collagen in vitro, and the(More)
To clarify further the beneficial effect of thiazide diuretics on recurrent calcium nephrolithiasis, the effect of short-term hydrochlorothiazide therapy on urine saturation with brushite (CaHPO(4).2H(2)O), in vitro collagen calcification by urine, and urinary inhibitors of calcification was studied.In 22 patients with idiopathic calcium oxalate/phosphate(More)
Normocalciuric and hypercalciuric patients with idiopathic recurrent calcium nephrolithiasis were compared with healthy individuals without such a history to examine the factors that predispose normocalciuric patients to stone formation. The urine calcium excretion rate was higher in the normocalciuric patients than in the control subjects (227 v. 183 mg/24(More)
Thiazide diuretics could have a beneficial effect in the prevention of recurrent renal calculi by decreasing the exaggerated calciuria which follows carbohydrate ingestionin patients who form calcium oxalate stones. The calciuric response to 100Gm. or oral glucose was studied in 21 patients with recurrent calcium stones before and after 6 months of(More)
