Prevalence and etiology of urinary stones in hospitalized patients in Baghdad
AbstractEpidemiology 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. All bacteria isolated were sensitive to gentamicin and nalidixic acid. All isolates were resistant to amoxicillin and erythromycin. Multiple resistance to 6 antimicrobial agents was common [58.8%]

Systematic review of studies evaluating urinary iodine concentration as a predictor of 24-hour urinary iodine excretion for estimating population iodine intake Ji, Chen; Lu, Tammy; Dary, Omar; Legetic, Branka; Campbell, Norm R. (2015)Objective. To examine the usefulness of ”spot” urine iodine concentrations (UICs) in predicting 24-hour urine iodine excretion (UIE) for estimating average population iodine intake. Methods. An electronic literature search was conducted for articles published through 19 May 2013 in MEDLINE (from 1950), EMBASE (from 1980), and the Cochrane Library (from 1993) using the terms “urinary excretion (timed or spot or random) and (24 h or 24 hour),” “iodine (iodine deficiency),” “iodine (intake),” and “urine (timed, spot, random, 24-hour).” Full-text ...
