Kidney stone analysis: "Give me your stone, I will tell you who you are!".

Cloutier J, Villa L, Traxer O, Daudon M - World J Urol (2014)

Bottom Line: Chemical and physical methods are both used for analysis.Physical methods, in counterpart, are becoming more and more used in high-volume laboratories.Here, specific chemical types with their different crystalline phases are shown in connection with their different etiologies involved.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Stone analysis is an important part in the evaluation of patients having stone disease. This could orientate the physician toward particular etiologies.

Material and methods: Chemical and physical methods are both used for analysis. Unfortunately, chemical methods often are inadequate to analyze accurately urinary calculi and could fail to detect some elements into the stone. Physical methods, in counterpart, are becoming more and more used in high-volume laboratories. The present manuscript will provide a review on analytic methods, and review all the information that should be included into an appropriate morpho-constitutional analysis.

Conclusion: This report can supply an excellent summarization of the stone morphology and give the opportunity to find specific metabolic disorders and different lithogenic process into the same stone. Here, specific chemical types with their different crystalline phases are shown in connection with their different etiologies involved.

Mentions: Regarding uric acid stones, the subtype IIIa is primarily related to slow stone growth conditions as observed in urinary stasis and is mainly found with bladder stone of men with prostate hypertrophy (Fig. 14) By contrast, IIIb subtype suggests a substantial involvement of a metabolic process associated with one or several of the following factors:Fig. 14
