Abstract

Erythropoeitin (EPO) levels were examined before, during, and after ESWL with the Dornier HM3 lithotripter in 30 patients. EPO levels increased by greater than 10 u/l in 16 (53%) patients. The change in EPO levels following ESWL may be adirect effect of shock wave-induced damage to cells or may be secondary to alterations in renal micro-circulation.
