The device, known as an orthopedic lithotriptor, is used for cases that have failed after six months of conventional therapy.
Even with more than 20 years of engineering and design modifications, shock wave lithotriptors still have 5 basic elements:
The original prototype lithotriptor, the Dornier HM3, and many contemporary lithotriptors are based on the elecrohydraulic generation of shock waves.
Because of this design, the entire surgical team consisting of surgeons, anesthesiologists, OR nurses and their surgical support systems, including, as needed, respirometers, heart pumps, cardiopulmonary bypass units, lithotriptors, surgical navigation systems, endoscopy systems, anesthesia carts, arthroscopy units, defibrillators, thermal regulation systems, fiberoptic lighting systems, and electrophysiology platforms such as EEG, EKG and EMG systems, have full 360(degree) access to the patient(*).
4 Pneumatic lithotriptors which were first introduced into the market in 1990s are now most intensely used in such procedures in our country due to the fact that they are cost efficient.
3) The availability of smaller ureteroscopes and the development of intracorporeal lithotriptors such as the holmium:YAG laser are the most important technical advances improving the efficacy of ureteroscopic lithotripsy.
Because a holmium:YAG laser lithotriptor was not available at our institution during the study period, an ultrasonic and/or pneumatic lithotriptor (EMS, Swiss Lithoclast Master, Switzerland) was used for stone fragmentation in all cases.
The Sonolith Praktis, which combines the high efficacy rate of the electroconductive shockwave technology with a unique modular concept, clearly represents the newest generation of lithotriptors.
