What causes kidney stones: Mayo Clinic Radio Health Minute
If you've ever had one, you know that passing a kidney stone can be a very uncomfortable experience. In this Mayo Clinic Radio Health Minute, we talk with Dr. David Patterson about why kidney stones form. To listen, click the link below. What causes kidney stones
Conclusion: Stone size was the only significant success predictor in our cohort, with 76% SF rate for stones 1000 HU may be suitable to SWL. PMID: 32597283 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: TBP was observed to be effective in eliminating renal stones within a short span of time and without any complications. PMID: 32610348 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Approximately 1% of urolithiasis cases in Germany affect children. Interdisciplinary groups have agreed on national and international guidelines for children to recommend appropriate treatment pathways. The ai...
Authors: Apaydın T, Yavuz DG Abstract Parathyroid cancer is a rare malignancy and an uncommon cause of hyperparathyroidism. In the present study, we present seven cases of parathyroid carcinoma. The female ratio was 5/7 (71.4%). Median age at diagnosis was 47 years, and median follow-up duration was 60 months (IQR 29-75). Mean calcium level at diagnosis was 12.7 mg/dL (range, 11.3-13.9), and mean parathormone level was 1115 ng/L (IQR 287-1470). Two patients (28.5%) had a palpable neck mass. Coexisting brown tumor was present in three patients (42.8%), and nephrolithiasis was found in one patien...
CONCLUSIONS: Garcinia cambogia extract removes calcium oxalate kidney stones from Drosophila Malpighian tubules via directly dissolving calcium oxalate stones by HCA. Our study strongly suggests that clinical-grade Garcinia cambogia extract could be used to treat patients with nephrolithiasis in the future. PMID: 32572941 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Feng D, Zhang F, Liu S, Han P, Wei W Abstract INTRODUCTION: Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is a minimally invasive approach used for large kidney stones. Although tranexamic acid (TA) has the property of reducing perioperative bleeding, the effect of this drug on PCNL is equivocal. This meta-analysis was conducted to determine the efficacy and safety of TA in preventing hemorrhagic complications, transfusion requirements and other perioperative outcomes during PCNL with available randomized-controlled trials (RCTs). EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: We performed a systematic review of the literature according...
In this report, we discuss the identification and management of this rare condition.
CONCLUSIONS: The ESWL technique requires a higher number of sessions for the resolution of kidney stones under 2 cm, but it has a lower impact on total costs and on the perceived degree of affectation. PMID: 32593640 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
We thank the authors for their interest in our manuscript, and we acknowledge their concerns regarding the potential downstream effects of elevated sodium intake in our AA patients. While we agree that the recommendation of a low sodium diet ( ≤2300mg daily) is frequently offered to nephrolithiasis patients for conservative dietary management due to concern for the correlation between increased sodium intake and hypercalciuria, the two prospective studies in which low sodium diet was correlated to decreased urine calcium were performed in patients in hypercalciuric patients with elevated baseline 24-hr urine sodium.
