Combined Hydrochlorothiazide and Magnesium Treatment in Calcium-Oxalate Stone Formers — A Randomized Study
Since the first reports of Yendt and co-workers (1) thiazides have been used in the prevention of recurrent renal calculi. During recent years, some controlled studies have shown a protective effect of thiazides (2, 3) whereas others have not (4, 5). A similar constroversy exists concerning the effects of magnesium treatment where two controlled studies (3, 6), in contrast to previous reports (7), failed to show any protective effect of magnesium.
