Pro: Electrohydraulic Lithotripsy with Fluoroscopic Imaging

  • Christian G. Chaussy


Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) has rapidly become well established as the preferred mode of therapy for the majority of symptomatic upper urinary tract calculi.1–9 Shock wave lithotripsy is performed worldwide, and to date the great majority of lithotripsy treatments have been performed utilizing Dornier HM3 and HM4 lithotripters. However, numerous other lithotripters are also in use worldwide, utilizing a variety of different imaging and energy sources.4–8
