Their therapeutic efficacies have generally been evaluated and compared, but very few data have been available on their relative risks of iatrogenic trauma to the urothelial wall. We conducted a comparative analysis of this risk by testing the pig ureteral and bladder wall with the EMS Lithoclast, Olympus ultrasonic lithotripter, Walz Lithotron EL 23, and Versa Pulse Ho:YAG… CONTINUE READING
