Kidney Stones Clinical Trials

A listing of Kidney Stones medical research trials actively recruiting patient volunteers. Search for closest city to find more detailed information on a research study in your area.

RESULTS

Found (38) 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

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

Night Time Use of Thiazide Diuretics for Improved Reduction in Stone Risk in Stone Formers With Elevated Urine Calcium

The study will be divided into three phases for every single patient, investigators will study 15-20 stone formers who have previously documented elevated urine calcium excretion, with a plan to measure their urine chemistries at baseline (if they currently use thiazide diuretics, they will come off of their respective thiazide ...

Phase N/A

Safety and Clinical Efficiency of the 21-day Fasting-like Diet in Patients With Metabolic and Autoimmune Diseases

Although fasting has been proved an effective approach to treat metabolic and autoimmune diseases in mice, prolonged fasting is difficult to implement in human-beings for the safety and feasibility reasons. In this clinical trial, we will recruit metabolic and autoimmune diseases and then follow a traditional Chinese 21-day fasting-like diet ...

Phase

Evaluation of Kidney Function by Multi-modal Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy

Early and specific detection of dysfunction in kidney diseases and differential diagnosis of potential complications in the renal allograft are fundamental to initiate appropriate treatment. In addition, determination of renal function may reveal physiological mechanisms that may prove useful for future therapeutic procedures. Currently, used methods to access renal function ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Multiple- Single- and Zero-dose of Ciprofloxacin Prophylaxis in Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery

PURPOSE To compare multiple-, single-, zero-dose antibiotic prophylaxis for retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) and detect the ideal regimen to prevent systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). METHODS An error of 5% and a power of 80% were assumed to detect a 14.9% difference in rates of postoperative SIRS (5.1% for the ...
