Kidney stones: KI at the crossroads of nephrology and urology

As part of ISN’s 60th-anniversary, Kidney International’s “Milestones in Nephrology” series highlights five key contributions to the multidisciplinary field of kidney stone disease:

  • Estimating the burden of kidney stone disease (Johnson CM, Wilson DM, O’Fallon WM, et al., 1979)
  • Urine chemistry as a window into kidney stone risk (Curhan GC, Willett WC, Speizer FE, Stampfer MJ., 2001)
  • Identifying risk factors for hyperoxaluria and calcium oxalate stones (Holmes RP, Goodman HO, Assimos DG., 2007)
  • Linking the metabolic syndrome to kidney stone risk: epidemiology and mechanisms (Abate N, Chandalia M, Cabo-Chan AV Jr., et al. 2005)
  • Beyond stones: implicating hyperuricemia in hypertension and kidney disease (Sanchez-Lozada LG, Tapia E, Santamaria J, et al., 2005)
