Ultrasound Imaging of Kidney Stones and Lithotripsy

The purpose of our research is to improve the ability to see kidney stones with ultrasound imaging. Specifically, we are testing how well new stone specific processing can find stones and show their size. Ultimately, better imaging can improve the care of future patients. Patients with kidney stones or undergoing ...

Phase N/A

Swiss Kidney Stone Cohort (SKSC)

The objective of this study is multi-site, standardized observation and characterization of kidney stone patients. Furthermore, an adequate structure should be established for the execution of studies with kidney stone patients, in order to then, if necessary, develop recommendations for useful monitoring or prophylactic measures, as well as new treatment ...

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 ...

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

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 ...
