Stones are caused by deposition of various salts leading to crystallization and growth inside kidney. They can be composed of Calcium, Uric acid, magnesium and ammonium phosphates. The composition depends upon the underlying diseases process and hence just stone removal is not enough. Sometimes recurrences are seen upto 50% times in patients.
