RESULTS

Found (31) clinical trials

The purpose of the study is to determine if increased fluid intake will result in decreased risk of stone formation. This study will last 2 years. There are up to 3 study visits. There will be 24-hour urine collections, CT scans, and specimen collection. Risks and benefits will be discussed ...

Phase N/A

Calcium Supplements Strategy for Kidney Stones Prevention in Crohn's Patients

The primary objective of this study is to establish optimal oral calcium supplementation in Crohn's patients who have had an ileal bowel resection. This population is at high risk for calcium oxalate kidney stones, a direct consequence of extensive gut malabsorption and enteric hyperoxaluria. The benefit of providing oral calcium ...

Phase N/A

Point of Care 3D Ultrasound for Various Applications: A Pilot Study

Summary Purpose and Objective: The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility of rapid acquisition of point of care 3D ultrasound in obtaining abdominal and/or pelvic images. The study will use a newly developed acquisition method and post-processing technique to create three dimensional image models of the abdomen ...

Phase N/A

Investigate the Renal Movement by Single Lung Ventilation in Patients Administered RIRS for Kidney Stones.

In recent years open surgical treatment has changed to minimal invasive treatments for kidney stone treatment. Additionally, the treatment choices vary depending on the localization of the stone and its dimensions. In the European Urology Association (EUA) guidelines, it states the RIRS method can be used to treat stones up ...

Phase N/A

Randall's Plaque Study: Pathogenesis and Relationship to Nephrolithiasis

In order to attempt to explain the pathogenesis of renal calculi, the investigators videotape and document the location and characteristics of each stone, papillae and calyces. One or more small papillary biopsies are taken for analysis to help determine the point of origin of the kidney stone and histological studies ...

Phase N/A

Trial Comparing Relapse Rates Between Standard Ureteroscopic Removal Of Ureteral Stone And Standard Removal With Additional Ureterorenic Clearing Of Non-Symptomatic Stones In The Kidney

Patients with a ureteral (the tube that leads from the kidney to the bladder) stone often also have small stones in the kidney (frequently visible on CT). If these small kidney stones are determined to be asymptomatic (not causing any problems or pain), then most urologists will simply remove the ...

Phase N/A

ROBOTIC PYELOLITHIOTOMY VERSUS PERCUTANEOUS NEPHROLITHOTOMY (PCNL).

Prospectively randomized study in patients with renal pelvic stones who are candidate to standard PCNL procedure. One to one, controlled clinical trial. Patients will be randomly allocated into two groups, 20 patients in each group. Group A will be scheduled to receive routine standard PCNL. Group B will be scheduled ...

Phase N/A

Struvite Stones Antibiotic Study

Struvite stones or infection stones are a subset of kidney stones that are related to bacterial infection. They only make up 15% of all kidney stones, but account for a much higher percentage of mortality (up to 67%) compared to other stonesdue to the infectious component. Treatment is to ensure ...

Phase

Prospective Research Rare Kidney Stones (ProRKS)

Severe, hereditary forms of nephrolithiasis cause marked excretion of insoluble minerals important in stone formation, including primary hyperoxaluria, cystinuria, Dent disease, and adenine phosphoribosyltransferase deficiency (APRTd). Patients with these disorders experience recurring stones from childhood and are at high risk for chronic kidney disease caused by crystal nephropathy. Enteric hyperoxaluria ...

Phase N/A

Trial of Randomized Antibiotic Administration in Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy

For large renal stone burdens and/or complex stones, Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL) has become the mainstay for treatment, replacing open kidney stone surgery since it's introduction in 1976. However, PCNL is not without its complications, specifically infectious. The procedure carries up to 25% incidence of infectious complications with approximately 1% rate ...
