PURPOSE Although geographic variability in cases of kidney stones, primarily calcium stones, is reported in the general population, little is known about geographic variability in subjects with spinal cord injury, in whom struvite stones predominate. We examined regional variation in the incidence rate of initial kidney stones and clarified the contributing factors in a spinal cord injury cohort. MATERIALS AND METHODS We used data from the national spinal cord injury database between 1986 and… CONTINUE READING
