Differences in Urines Collected from the Bladder and a Stone-Forming Kidney
Nephrostomy tubes were left post-operatively in four cases. The urines from the nephrostomy and from the bladder were analyzed for calcium, uric acid, transaminase enzymes, and amino-acid composition. Urine volume and creatinine clearance from both kidneys were determined. The over-all potential for calcium-oxalate precipitation in vitro, as quantified by the DI value, was also measured separately.
