Kidney Stones clinical trials at UCSD
3 in progress, 1 open to eligible people

  • Struvite Stones Antibiotic Study

    open to eligible people ages 19 years and up

    The aim of this research is to determine an effective antibiotic regimen following definitive surgical therapy of kidney stones caused by bacterial infection (struvite stones).

  • A Randomized Trial of Preoperative Prophylactic Antibiotics Prior to Kidney Stone Surgery (Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy [PCNL])

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    When patients are going to have surgery to remove large kidney stones (percutaneous nephrolithotomy [PCNL]), it is not clear whether the patients benefit from a course of prophylactic preoperative oral antibiotics; currently both the use of prophylactic preoperative oral antibiotics and no prophylactic oral antibiotics are considered to be within standard-of-care. This study will randomize patients to preoperative prophylactic antibiotics or no antibiotics to determine if the use of preoperative prophylactic antibiotics decreases the postoperative risk of localized urinary tract infection (UTI) and/or systemic infection that started in the urinary tract (sepsis or urosepsis).

  • Ureteral Stent Placement After Ureteroscopy for Renal Stones: A Randomized Controlled Trial

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The rationale for this study is to determine if there is a difference in complications among patients undergoing ureteroscopy for renal stones who receive a stent compared to not receiving a stent postoperatively.
