Abstract

This study investigated the risk of subsequent depressive disorders (DD) following a diagnosis of urinary calculi (UC) in Taiwan. In total, 67,917 adult patients newly diagnosed with UC were recruited, along with 153,951 age-matched enrollees who were used as a comparison group. A stratified Cox proportional hazard regression analysis revealed that the adjusted hazard of DD within a 1-year period following diagnosis with UC was 1.75 times greater for patients with UC than for comparison patients.
