We have studied how complex formation between calcium and ethylenediaminetetraacetate or citrate ions influences the surface texture and the size of passed oxalate-phosphate renal stones. The four hour concrement treatment by sodium citrate or ethylenediaminetetraacetate aqueous solutions strongly affects the stone texture and provides a mass loss of 6-15%. We have found a significant decrease of the calcium and phosphor content on a concrement surface and formation of appreciable cracks. Our… CONTINUE READING
