First clinical experience with extracorporeally induced destruction of kidney stones by shock waves.
We performed extracorporeally induced destruction of kidney stones on 72 patients. No complications have resulted from the tissue exposure to high energy shock waves. Clearance studies before andExpand

Shock-wave lithotripsy of gallbladder stones. The first 175 patients.
To substantiate the early results of extracorporeal shock-wave fragmentation of gallstones, we used this nonsurgical procedure to treat 175 patients with radiolucent gallbladder calculi.Expand

Influence of the shock wave application mode on the growth of A-Mel 3 and SSK2 tumors in vivo.
We examined the influence of different shock wave application modes with a Dornier XL1 electrohydraulic lithotripter on the growth of A-Mel 3 and SSK2 tumors implanted under the dorsal skin ofExpand

Biological effects of shock waves: kidney damage by shock waves in dogs--dose dependence.
The effect of shock waves on normal canine kidneys was examined in three groups of dogs whose right kidneys were exposed to 500, 1500, or 3000 shock waves. Autopsy was performed 24-30 h later. TheExpand

Biological effects of shock waves: lung hemorrhage by shock waves in dogs--pressure dependence.
The most serious side effect observed during the destruction of gallstones by shock waves in dogs was lung bleeding. To determine the conditions leading to lung damage, pressure probes were implantedExpand

Selection of patients for extra-intracranial arterial bypass surgery based on rCBF measurements.
Extracranial intracranial arterial anastomosis is gaining acceptance as a form of treatment in selected cases with ischemic cerebrovascular disease. To establish indications for this operation and toExpand

Application of a fibrinogen-thrombin-collagen-based hemostyptic agent in experimental injuries of liver and spleen.
FTCH is a recently developed material which consists of a collagen fleece containing fibrinogen, thrombin, and aprotinin integrated into its surface. FTCH is highly effective in sealing of tissuesExpand

Hemodynamics and Oxygen Transport after Partial and Total Blood Exchange with Pyridoxalated Polyhemoglobin in Dogs
The effects of a pyridoxalated polyhemoglobin solution ((SFH‐PLP)n‐solution) on cardiovascular hemodynamics and oxygen transport were investigated in a model of partial and total blood exchange inExpand
