Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We performed a retrospective study of patients who had urinary tract stones and were seen at our hospital from 1985-1990. The study was intended to determine the prevalence of urolithiasis and optimal approaches to imaging. Clinical data and imaging studies of 87 patients were reviewed. The mean age was 15.7 years with a range of 3 months to 44 years. Fifty-four percent of patients were male. Most patients had a known predisposing cause for urolithiasis; patients with myelodysplasia and structural urologic problems predominated. Plain films were performed in 77 patients; 57% showed stones. Ultrasonograms were performed in 71 patients; 77% showed stones. Excretory urograms (EU) were performed in 49 patients; 84% showed either stones or their effect on the urinary tract. Computed tomographic (CT) scan was performed in 25 patients; all showed stones.
