Results and clinical management of extracorporeal piezoelectric lithotripsy (EPL) in 1321 consecutive treatments

Abstract

The Piezolith 2200 uses piezoelectrically generated high-energy sonic pulses for extracorporeal urinary stone disintegration. The generator is self-focussing. Calculi as small as 1 mm in diameter can be localized by an integrated ultrasound location system. As treatment with the Piezolith does not cause any pain, patients are treated without anesthesia and… (More)
