To meet the requirements demanded by a person of the stone-forming habit may be very difficult. The patient concerned in this report was subjected to so many operations for the removal of stones from both kidney pelves and ureters that further operative measures became a serious question. In view of his lowered vitality and the distressing after-effects of operations, something else had to be done.
REPORT OF CASE
F. K., a student, aged 22, who first consulted me in June, 1920, for a year had been having typical attacks of renal and ureteral colic on the left side, accompanied by the passage of bloody urine and occasionally a small stone. July 10, by cystoscopy a stone was removed from the left ureteral orifice, after slitting with ureteral scissors.The patient was placed on a meat-free diet, with forced fluids, and was apparently free from further trouble for nearly a year.
