[Current status of prevention and therapy of urinary calculi and peroral chemo-litholysis with special attention to the relationship of increased excretion of uric acid in oxalate lithiasis].Z Urol Nephrol. 1980 Mar; 73(3):229-39.ZU
A survey shall be given of the present state of prevention and therapy of urolithiasis as well as of the up to now much restricted possibilities of the chemolitholysis. Particular attention is paid to calcium on account of its participation in the development of oxalate and phosphate calculi which together might be 70--80% of all calculi as well as to the rather limited possibilities of the reduction of the oxalate secretion in the urine. The encouragement of the oxalate lithiasis by increased uric acid in the urine as well as the reduction of the frequency of relapses not only of the concrements of the uric acid but also of the oxalate concrements by the uricostatic Allopurinol (e.g. zyloric) is dealt with.
