Quantitative Studies of Calcium Crystalluria

Abstract

This study compared calcium crystal concentrations and crystal incidence with the chemical composition of urine samples from 1100 calcium stone formers and 79 normal individuals. The majority of urine samples from stone formers came from patients attending the out-patient clinic at St. Paul’s Hospital, London.
