However, the determination of urine saturation is unsuitable for routine clinical practice. To evaluate a simpler and cheaper test than urine saturation for distinguishing stone formers from healthy individuals, urinary citrate/calcium ratio was determined in 30 children with urolithiasis, 36 children with isolated hematuria, and 15 healthy control children… CONTINUE READING
