Abstract

About 2,500 patients underwent lithotripsy treatment (ESWL) in the Urology Department of Hadassah Hospital. A random group of 243 was subjected to evaluation of risk factors using the Discriminant Index (DI) method which measures the over-all inhibitory potential of the patients’ urine to calcium-oxalate crystallization.
