[Clinical value of Canephron N after surgical treatment of urinary stone disease].Urologiia 2019; (2):15-20U
The drug Canephron N is a combination of extracts of centaury, lovage and rosemary. Moderate antispasmoic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, diuretic and antimicrobial effects are of great interest for urological practice. The optimal combination of components that were made of herbal medicine allows to use their synergistic effect for prevention of recurrence of urinary stone disease. The experience of using the drug Canephron in clinical practice is of great interest.
to clarify the clinical efficiency of Canephron N in patients with urinary stone disease after surgical treatment and to evaluate the changes in diuresis and calcium excretion.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
The results of using the drug Canephron after surgical treatment of urinary stone disease are provided. The changes in diuresis and calcium excretion in 75 patients undergone surgical treatment of urinary stone disease were studied. Patients after ureteroscopy, percutaneous nephrolithotomy and extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy were prescribed treatment to prevent stone formation including herbal drug Canephron N.
At baseline, there was negative correlation between 24-hours diuresis and calcium excretion in all groups. During follow-up, a positive correlation between 24-hours diuresis and calcium excretion was found in patients receiving Canephron N and other types of treatment. The average follow-up was 390 days. During this period, recurrence was noted in 1 patient receiving Canephron, 4 patients in patients who took other drugs and in 5 patients who didnt receive any treatment.
Risk factors of stone formation persist after surgical treatment of urinary stone disease. This is reflected in a negative correlation between 24-hour diuresis and calcium excretion. During treatment, a positive correlation between diuresis and calcium excretion was noted in patients with urinary stone disease. The use of drugs that affect stone formation as well as herbal medicine Canephron N allow to obtain comparable ratio of diuresis and calcium excretion.
