Laryngoscopy lasting 40 s was performed with a size 3 Macintosh blade connected to a force-displacement(More)
In 282 patients 290 ureteral stones were treated with extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy using the Lithostar lithotriptor. Stones were in the upper ureter in 198 units (68.3%), middle ureter in 36 (12.4%) and lower ureter in 56 (19.3%). The average stone mass was 11.9 mm. and the mean number of shock waves was 4,913 for all levels with a mean kv. of(More)

We studied the effect of early bladder electric stimulation on detrusor activity during the spinal shock phase in the dog. The animals had a spinal cord section at T10 vertebra and their bladder management was assigned to one of(More)
