ABSTRACT OF A PAPER ON THE CHOICE OF TREATMENT OF URINARY CONCRETIONS.

ABSTRACT OF A PAPER ON THE CHOICE OF TREATMENT OF URINARY CONCRETIONS. In the examination of the several modes of treating urinary concretions, the question of their indications and contraindications is worthy of special attention, since adherence to a single procedure belongs to the medicine of a remote past. Modern medicine demands that preventive measures be taken in threatened calculous affection at the first sign of coming of hyperlithæmia; that when hyperlithuria exists, medicinal treatment be resorted to; that when calculi are formed, mechanical means be promptly applied for their removal; that when the calculi have been removed, the cure be accomplished by suitable after-treatment; and that when mechanical treatment is contraindicated, a judicious course of palliative treatment be adopted. Therefore the treatment of urinary concretions is now arranged into the preventive, medicinal, palliative, mechanical and post-mechanical treatment. The preventive treatment embraces hygienic, medicinal and mechanical means. The needed hygienic observances comprise diet, exercise, ablutions and raiment.

Abstract

In the examination of the several modes of treating urinary concretions, the question of their indications and contraindications is worthy of special attention, since adherence to a single procedure belongs to the medicine of a remote past. Modern medicine demands that preventive measures be taken in threatened calculous affection at the first sign of coming of hyperlithæmia; that when hyperlithuria exists, medicinal treatment be resorted to; that when calculi are formed, mechanical means be promptly applied for their removal; that when the calculi have been removed, the cure be accomplished by suitable after-treatment; and that when mechanical treatment is contraindicated, a judicious course of palliative treatment be adopted. Therefore the treatment of urinary concretions is now arranged into the preventive, medicinal, palliative, mechanical and post-mechanical treatment. The preventive treatment embraces hygienic, medicinal and mechanical means. The needed hygienic observances comprise diet, exercise, ablutions and raiment. The medicinal means of prevention
