BACKGROUND We aimed to develop a new simplified method to determine the urinary calcium-oxalate saturation. METHODS The ion-activity product (AP) of urinary calcium oxalate was estimated in 345 clinical urine specimens (all 2.5 hour collections) using the Equil2 computer program and several other methods, and the results were compared. A new index using 4… CONTINUE READING
