Corrigendum to “The role of sodium intake in nephrolithiasis: Epidemiology, pathogenesis, and future directions” [Eur J Intern Med 35 (2016) 16–19]

      The authors regret that in the article “The role of sodium intake in nephrolithiasis: epidemiology, pathogenesis, and future directions” (EJINME-03278), we omitted a piece of information that we wish to bring to the readership's attention. Ideas regarding sodium and nephrolithiasis were cited from multiple sources. However one important source (Ticinesi et al. NDT 2016, 31: 39-45) that supports these ideas was also intended to be included.
      The authors would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.

        • Preview
          The prevalence of nephrolithiasis has doubled over the last decade and the incidence in females now approaches that of males. Since dietary salt is lithogenic, a purported mechanism common to both genders is excess dietary sodium intake vis-a-vis processed and fast foods. Nephrolithiasis has far-reaching societal implications such as impact on gross domestic product due to days lost from work (stone disease commonly affects working adults), population-wide carcinogenic diagnostic and interventional radiation exposure (kidney stone disease is typically imaged with computed tomographic imaging and treated under imaging guidance and follow-up), and rising healthcare costs (surgical treatment will be indicated for a number of these patients).
