This study presents the results of a 10-year metaphylaxis of 19 former struvite stone formers, each having had two to three stone operations. In these patients, urine was acidified with L-methionine (Acimethin“) using a dose of 1.5 to 3.0 gm per day. Every three months, 11 laboratory parameters relevant to stone formation were checked in 24 h urine collections. Six parameters were determined in serum, and urine samples were tested for infection.
