Four renal tubular enzymes, N-acetyl-beta-glucosaminidase, beta-galactosidase, angiotensin-converting enzyme and gamma-glutamyltransferase, were measured in the urine before, and 24 hours and 1 week after extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy in 20 consecutive patients. Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy was performed on the Sonolith 2000 device with the patient under intravenous narcotic sedation with fentanyl. Enzymatic activity per gram of urinary creatinine was consistently but not… CONTINUE READING
