Abstract

Purpose The present study aims to biochemically analyze the fluid samples containing stone dust taken during the perioperative period to determine the role of fluid in the prediction of stones in patients treated with ureterorenoscopic procedures. Our secondary aim is to investigate the role of both fluid analysis and stone analysis in predicting the results of the metabolic analysis.
