Extracorporeal biliary lithotripsy and uncorrected hyperlipidemia
- 14 Downloads
Patients with cholelithiasis are treated by the method of extracorporeal lithotripsy. The technique of the combined use of two lithotriptors with different modes of shock wave generation (electrohydraulic and electromagnetic) is described. As a result of treatment the number of skin petechiae decreases as do transitory hematuria and manifestations of hepatic colic and acute pancreatitis, whereas mechanical jaundice and acute cholecystitis develop with the same frequency. The number of recurrences of cholelithogeny in patients with hyperlipidemia is 8 times higher than in the control, which indicates a clear connection between hyperlipidemia and stone formation in patients after extracorporeal biliary lithotripsy.
