Influence of different factors on the formation of calcium oxalate stones. I. Discriminant analytical computations of morphological parameters of the pelvic-calyceal systems of calcium oxalate stone formers and controls.
Until now almost exclusively clinicochemical urine parameters have been used to determine the risk of urinary stone formation. In part I of this study, pelvic-calyceal systems of healthy persons and calcium oxalate stone formers are compared with regard to their morphology, whereas urine parameters will be briefly included in part II. Discriminant functions… (More)
