Opioid Prescribing for Kidney Stone Formers Undergoing Stone Removal
Kidney stone formers may have episodes of severe pain and be at increased risk of narcotic use. Alabama has a high rate of opioid use. Within, we examine differences in opioid prescribing for kidney stone formers requiring stone removal procedures. A retrospective review was conducted from June 2013 to July 2019. Twenty-five patients with recurrent cystine stones were randomly matched by age, gender, and procedure to 25 recurrent non-cystine and 25 first-time non-cystine stone formers.
