First Study of Urinary Stone Composition in Oman

Mohamed S. Al-Marhoon et. al. 

Sultan Qaboos University - Oman

Introduction

Urinary stones are a common urologic disease and their composition is unknown in Oman. [1] The aim is to analyze the components of urinary stones of Omani patients and use data obtained for future studies of etiology, treatment and prevention 

Conclusions

The most common urinary stones in Oman are Calcium Oxalates. Overweight is an important risk factor associated with stone formation. The hereditary Cystine stones are three times more common in Oman than what is reported in the literature that needs further genetic studies.
