End Stage Renal Disease (dialysis) Linked to Recurrent Symptomatic Kidney Stones

20.01.2018

Patients who suffer from recurrent symptomatic kidney stones are at higher risk for end-stage renal disease (dialysis).

This is the result of a study reported at the American Society of Nephrology's Kidney Week 2017 meeting.

The dialysis and mortality may be higher in recurrent than incident symptomatic stone formers due to more substantial renal injury from a more severe stone disease.

Thus efforts to reduce kidney stone recurrence may have a beneficial impact on dialysis and mortality risk. Asymptomatic stone formers also had a significantly increased risk of dialysis.
