Longitudinal study of kidney water management in patients diagnosed with idiopathic hypercalciuria in childhood.

CONCLUSIONS: KWM was affected in approximately one third of patients with IH, which persisted 20 years after diagnosis. We think that these results may be due to adherence to the recommended protective diet and to the pharmacological treatment administered at the diagnosis of IH during childhood.

CONCLUSIONS: Using up-to-date ultrasound tissue images allows better treatment optimization compared to the previous method that uses pre-surgery scans (CT or MRI). It helps optimize the angle of the beam axis and choose the beam with adequate range (energy) and avoid the risk of inaccurate irradiation of the area of interest.
