Inhibition of Struvite Crystal Growth in the Presence of Herbal ExtractOrthosiphon AristatusBL.MIQ

Abstract: The formation of urinary stones is a serious problem worldwide. Struvite (MgNH4PO4.6H2O) is known as one of the main components of the stones. Traditionally, herbal extracts treatment is recommended. This paper discusses the effects of Orthosiphon aristatus Bl.Miq leaves extract (OA) on struvite crystals grown by diffusion gel method. After three weeks the crystals were separated from the gel, air dried and stored for characterisation. The crystals exhibit different morphologies depending upon the location of … Show more

“…In an alkaline state, supersaturated urine leads to nucleation, crystal growth and aggregation [8] thus, reduces the solubility of ammonium magnesium phosphate and leads to formation and deposition of struvite crystals [9]. Urea-splitting urolithic microorganisms, Proteus, Pseudomonas, Mycoplasma, Klebsiella, Staphylococcus, and yeast can hydrolyze urea to ammonia and raise the alkaline nature (pH) of urine [10,11]. Infection stones, urease, triple-phosphate stones and magnesium ammonium phosphate stone are the common names of struvite stone.…”
