Effect of stone motion on in vitro comminution efficiency of Storz Modulith SLX.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: During SWL, stone motion secondary to ventilatory motion can be as much as 50 mm. This is much larger than the 4- to 15-mm diameter of the focal regions on most clinical machines. The goal of this study was to determine the effect of stone motion on the fragmentation efficiency of a clinical lithotripter with a small (4-mm) focal spot. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A model stone (6.5 x 7.5 mm) made of gypsum cement was used as an in vitro target for a Storz Modulith SLX lith...
