The effects of extracorporeal shock waves on haemoglobin release, membrane permeabilisation and stone fragmentation were examined at minimal static excess pressures. Shock waves from an electrohydraulic lithotripter were applied at 15, 20 and 25 kV to red blood cells in plastic pipettes pressurised with 0, 30, 50, 75, 100, 200, 300 and 400 kPa of static excess pressure; the freed haemoglobin was determined as a marker of cell destruction. Using 15-kV discharges, 30-kPa excess pressure reduced… CONTINUE READING
