Sažetak
To investigate the risk for the development of urolithiasis in 30 children with urolithiasis, 36 children with isolated hematuria, and 15 healthy control children, 24-h urinary excretion of calcium, sodium, oxalate, citrate, sulfate, phosphate, magnesium, urate, chloride, ammonium, and glycosaminoglycans was determined and urine saturation for calcium oxalate was calculated with the computer program EQUIL 2. Compared with controls, children with urolithiasis had significantly increased calcium excretion, oxalate excretion, and urine saturation, whereas children with isolated hematuria had significantly increased calcium excretion only. The best estimation of the relative risk of urolithiasis can be made after urine saturation, using logistic regression. The percentage of patients correctly classified after urine saturation is 85.41% in comparison with 80.95% and 73.81% when the estimation was done by calcium excretion and oxalate excretion, respectively. Using the breakpoint value of 4.29 for urine saturation, it was possible to separate children with increased risk of urolithiasis development from the group of children with isolated hematuria.
