    • Prevalence and etiology of urinary stones in hospitalized patients in Baghdad 

      Qaader, D.S.; Yousif, S.Y.; Mahdi, L.K. (‎2006)‎
      Epidemiology and pathogenesis in urinary stones diagnosed in 184 patients were studied. Mean age was 38.3 years. Male to female ratio was 2.5: 1. Stones were predominantly of mixed type: calcium oxalate was the commonest compound. Anatomical distribution of urinary stones was 67.4% renal, 12.5% ureteric and 14.6% bladder. Recurrence rate following previous surgical removal was 15.0%. Bacteria were isolated from 19 [‎24.4%]‎ of 78 urinary stones: 14 were urea splitting and 5 non-urea splitting. Females had a greater chance of having infected stones. ...
    • Urinary calculi: bacteriological and chemical association 

      Naas, T.; Al Agili, S.; Bashir, O. (‎2001)‎
      We investigated the bacteriology of urinary calculi in relation to urinary tract infection, stone formation, chemical composition and antibiotic sensitivity. Fifty-two patients [‎37 males, 15 females]‎ with urolithiasis were studied. Urine, serum and urinary calculi specimens were taken and serum biochemical tests to detect uric acid, calcium and phosphorus were performed. Urine analysis and culture were also performed. Of the 52 patients, 19 [‎37%]‎ had associated urinary tract infection, with Escherichia coli and Proteus mirabilis being the most ...
