Intestinal Absorption of Oxalate and Calcium
The majority of renal stones contain calcium oxalate (1, 2). In patients with idiopathic calcium stone disease, an increased excretion of both calcium and oxalate is reported (3, 4). After jejuno-ileal bypass (JIB), hyperoxaluria is a well-recognized complication (5, 6). Our purpose was to study to what extent the intestinal absorption of oxalate and calcium could explain these differences in urinary excretions.
