Melamine has been the main factor leading to infant urinary calculi occurring on a rather wide scale in China in 2008, which were the results of a rapid aggradation of metabolites such as cyanuric acid diamide, cyanuric acid, etc., causing uric acid stone to accumulate. Here, we present a report on 24 infants who were admitted to our department, their ages ranging from 3 to 10 months. All of these infants had a confirmed history of having been fed with the “Sanlu” brand milk powder, which… Expand
Outcome of children with melamine-induced urolithiasis: results of a two-year follow-up
TLDR
Melamine might injure both the renal glomerulus and the tubule, and that the predominant lesion is urolithiasis, which might persist for over 2 years and cause irreversible damage. Expand
Melamine-Related Urinary Stones in 195 Infants and Young Children: Clinical Features within 2 Years of Follow-Up
TLDR
Conservative treatment shows a high effectiveness in cases with residual MUS and Consumption of MMP with timely treatment did not demonstrate an evident impact on kidney and bladder although body height is slightly affected in a few cases. Expand
Management of pediatric urolithiasis induced by melamine-contaminated powdered formula (report of 619 cases).
TLDR
Most children with melamine-induced urolithiasis were treated successfully with an infusion of fluids, urine basification, and diuresis, and surgical intervention should be considered as early as possible to relieve the obstruction. Expand
Diagnosis and therapy of acute urolithiasis caused by melamine contamination in infant formula milk
TLDR
Ureteral stenting via cystoscopy is a useful method, resulting in minimal trauma and a positive prognosis of severe, acute urolithiasis in infants and toddlers, caused by melamine contamination in infant formula milk. Expand
Ceftriaxone and Acute Renal Failure in Children
TLDR
Ceftriaxone therapy in children may cause postrenal acute renal failure in children and retrograde ureteral catheterization is an effective treatment of those who fail to respond to pharmacotherapy. Expand
High prevalence of pediatric urinary tract stones in Xinjiang Uyghur
TLDR
There was a downward trend for ammonium urate with age in both children and adults (p for trend < 0.001, respectively), and the frequency of uric acid declined withAge in pediatric patients, but increased in adults. Expand
Melamine Nephrotoxicity is Mediated by Hyperuricemia.
TLDR
It is suggested that uric acid plays a key role in melamine-related kidney injury in humans, as it was demonstrated in animals administered at least 800 mg/kg of the two compounds combined. Expand

TLDR
Sodium citrate could decrease melamine-cyanuric acid mixture-induced crystal formation that leads to urolithiasis and nephrotoxicity in rats, and this results may provide a strategy for melamine -cyanURic acid-intoxication therapy in animal. Expand
Pediatric urolithiasis: causative factors, diagnosis and medical management
TLDR
This work discusses causative risk factors of pediatric urolithiasis, as well as the diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, and evaluates the metabolic risk factors in patients. Expand
Inhibition of Urinary Macromolecule Heparin on Aggregation of Nano-COM and Nano-COD Crystals
TLDR
Hparin could inhibit the aggregation of nano COM and nano COD crystals and increase their stability in aqueous solution, which is conducive in inhibiting the formation of calcium oxalate stones. Expand

TLDR
The first case of a previously healthy child with acute renal failure caused by obstructive uric acid stones of the bilateral pelviureteric junctions associated with rotavirus gastroenteritis is described, describing a 13-month boy with an 8-day history of vomiting, watery diarrhea, and low-grade fever.

Melamine-contaminated milk products induced urinary tract calculi in children
TLDR
Melamine-contaminated milk products induced urinary tract calculi, which have a good response to conservative therapy and long-term follow-up of infants and children fed with the milk products is required, and food safety should be supervised increasingly for the health of children. Expand
Management of the choked ureter in obstructive renal failure due to uric acid lithiasis.
TLDR
In 6 of these ureters contrast retrograde ureterography showed relief of obstruction, which was believed to be owing to the stone dissolution properties of the contrast medium used, and methods of management of the obstructed tract caused by uric acid stone disease are evaluated. Expand
Blood purification therapy in treatment of acute renal failure in infants with melamine‐induced stones
TLDR
Melamine‐contaminated milk formula may cause urinary stones and obstructive acute renal failure in infants and dialysis is suggested to treat life‐threatening complications such as hyperkalemia, oliguria or anuria if surgical intervention fails. Expand
Renal screening in children after exposure to low dose melamine in Hong Kong: cross sectional study
TLDR
The data suggest that large scale and urgent screening programmes may not be informative or cost effective for populations who have been exposed to low dose melamine and the prevalence of microscopic haematuria was probably overestimated by the reagent strip. Expand

TLDR
Systemic alkali therapy in the form of intravenous molar lactate or sodium bicarbonate is effective and safe both in obstructive anuria and non-obstructive urinary uric acid stones. Expand

TLDR
Acidic urine is a prerequisite for uric acid stone formation and growth and medical management with urinary alkalization for stone dissolution and prevention of recurrence is effective and should be the cornerstone of treatment. Expand

TLDR
Recurrent stone formation in the urinary tract is a common and important problem that must be considered in daily urological practice and can be prevented with general or specific dietary and drinking advice and with pharmacological therapy. Expand
