Papillary ductal plugging is a mechanism for early stone retention in brushite stone disease

Mechanisms of early stone retention within the kidney are understudied and poorly understood. To date, attachment via Randall’s plaque is the only widely accepted theory in this regard, best described in idiopathic calcium oxalate stone formers. Brushite stone formers are known to have distinct papillary morphology relative to calcium oxalate stone formers. As such, we sought to determine whether stone attachment mechanisms in such patients may be similarly unique.
