In Vitro Dissolution of Infection-Induced Urinary Calculi
Urologic G solution and Renacidin are the two agents commonly used in dissolving infection-induced calculi. Kinetic studies comparing the relative effectiveness of the two solutions are lacking. Acetylcysteine has been shown to be effective in the dissolution of uric acid and cystine calculi. Its potential use in the dissolution of infection-induced calculi is unknown. We have studied the in vitro dissolution of infection-induced calculi using the above three solutions.
