Fate of clinically insignificant residual fragments after extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy with EDAP LT-01 lithotripter.

Abstract

The stone-free rate of 248 cases of clinically insignificant residual fragments (CIRF) was 32.7% by 1 month, 73.0% by 3 months, and 92.7% by 6 months of follow-up. The stone-free rate decreased but not remarkably in accordance with the increment of the caliceal dilatation (92.9%, 94.9%, 85.7%, and 83.3% for no, mild, moderate, and severe dilatation… (More)
