OBJECTIVES To examine the significance of the carbonation rate (CR) in carbonated apatite (carbapatite [CA]) stones and its relationships with the morphologic characteristics of CA and etiology. CA stones without struvite can result from metabolic disorders or urinary tract infection, but the latter etiology is still debated. Infection stones caused by urea-splitting bacteria are made of CA admixed with struvite and exhibit a high CO(3)(2-)/PO(4)(3-) ratio (CR). However, little is known as to… CONTINUE READING
