To investigate the outcome of melamine-related-calculus.
- The change of calculus.
- The change of obstruction features,including hydronephrosis and ureterectasia.
- The change of the urinalysis.
To investigate the change of renal function in children with melamine-related-calculus during the follow up.
- Creatinine, urea and uric acid.
- α and β2 microglobulin.
To analysis the factors might be associated with the outcome.
- The characteristics of patients: age, gender, and so on.
- The characteristics of calculus: location, size, and so on.
