OBJECTIVES We studied 485 patients treated by extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy (ESWL) using an ultrasound electrohydraulic apparatus in an effort to define radiographic criteria for better patient selection for ESWL.

After per-criteria analysis of the results, a multivariate analysis as well as an analysis of stone… CONTINUE READING
