INTRODUCTION Refinements in ultrasonic and pneumatic lithotriptors, as well as the development of new dual-modality lithotriptors, have increased the options available for the endourologist. Studies comparing the efficiency of the devices in both bench and clinical models help provide the endourologist with guidance in selecting the most appropriate lithotrite. METHODS A review of the literature was performed reviewing the current status of pneumatic, ultrasonic, and dual-modality… CONTINUE READING
