Xanthium strumarium has traditionally been used in the treatment of urolitiasis especially by the rural people in India, but its antiurolithiatic efficacy was not explored scientifically till now. Therefore, the present study was designed to validate the ethnic practice scientifically, and explore the possible antiurolithiatic effect to rationalize its medicinal use. Urolitiasis was induced in hyperoxaluric rat model by giving 0.75% ethylene glycol (EG) for 28days along with 1% ammonium chloride (AC) for first 14days...

INTRODUCTION: Extracorporeal Shock Wave lithotripsy (ESWL) is the cornerstone of pediatric urolitiasis management. We evaluated its efficacy and complications in a series of children. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Children who were managed with ESWL between 2003 and 2012 were retrospectively reviewed. We studied etiology, clinical presentation, stonefree ratio and relevant complications. SPSS 17.0 software was used. RESULTS: 90 children aged 0 to 10 years (median 2...

OBJECTIVES: In recent years, it has been shown that there is association between metabolic syndrome and urinary stone disease. Stone disease and erectile dysfunction (ED) are considered as systemic diseases which are associated with hormonal and metabolic disorders. Therefore we investigated the relationship between ED and urinary tract calculi. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 98 male patients with urolithiasis and 59 randomly selected male patients without stone disease were included in the study...

The present study was done to evaluate the antiurolithiatic activity of ethanolic extract of roots (ELC 200 mg/kg) and oleanolic acid (OA 60 mg/kg, O.A. 80 mg/kg, O.A. 100 mg/kg) isolated from roots of Lantana camara in albino wistar male rats using zinc disc implantation induced urolithiatic model. The group in which only zinc disc was implanted without any treatment showed increase in calcium output (23  ± 2.7 mg/dL). Cystone receiving animals showed significant protection from such change (P < 0...

The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of metabolic abnormalities in patients at high risk and the impact of sex and age. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Descriptive study of 54 patients (37 men and 17 women), with lithiasic pathology at high risk of recurrence. The metabolic study included the measurement of calcemia, uricemia, fosfemia, parathormone, calciuria/24 h, uricosuria/24 h, fosfaturia/24 h, oxalaturia/24 h, citraturia/24 h and creatinine/24 h...

The purpose of study is to evaluate the effectiveness of the set of preventive measures as applied to 321 workers of basic ferrous metallurgy specialties (steel makers, mill men, hot metal shearers). During the clinical examination all the workers were divided on three groups: the workers without any pathology (11.83%, the first group), the workers with metabolic disorders only without urolitiasis (64.81%, the second group) and the workers with urolitiasis diagnosis approved by ultrasonography (23.36%, the third group)...

PURPOSE: Although urinary complications of Crohn's disease are relatively rare, they often present diagnostic and therapeutic dilemmas. However, there is no established strategy for treating urinary complications of Crohn's disease. In the present clinical study, we describe the frequency of urinary complications of Crohn's disease, and discuss various approaches to their diagnosis and treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The subjects were 1,551 patients who underwent medical treatment for Crohn's disease between January 1994 and May 2002 at Social Insurance Central General Hospital...

OBJECTIVES: We intended to find risk factors for urolitiasis and its recurrence in a geriatric population. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The medical records of 209 elderly stone patients over age 65 were reviewed. They had been regularly seen at our stone clinic for a mean follow-up period of 1385 +/- 1324 days after urolithiasis was diagnosed. RESULTS: The elderly population comprised 9.6 % of all the stone patients followed at the stone clinic. Regarding stone compositions, calcium oxalate and calcium phosphate were most common in the elderly patients (80 %)...

We encountered 4 patients with urolithiasis due to renal tubular acidosis (RTA) associated with Sjögren's syndrome. Laboratory results about RTA in 4 patients with Sjögrenhs syndrome were not significantly different from those in patients who suffered from urolithiasis due to RTA without Sjögren's syndrome. The incidence of urolitiasis in these cases was suspected to be higher than that in RTA patients without Sjögren's syndrome, because all 4 patients in this study had urolithiasis. When we examine patients with bilateral and multiple urolithiasis, particularly in middle-aged women, we should bear in mind that RTA and Sjögren's syndrome may exist in the background...
