If an initial stone has been analyzed do subsequent stones need to be analyzed?

Yes. Analysis of stones as they recur may reveal that stone composition has changed, which could require revision of the stone prevention protocol.

In fact, a change in stone type may be a result of preventive therapy, such as calcium phosphate stones forming because of excessive alkalinization in a patient with cystinuria.
