Warner and colleagues in 1988 were the first to investigate the potential benefits of HFJV for SWL.[sup.6] They found that mean stone movement and mean total shocks were significantly decreased during HFJV compared with CMV.
We found that the group undergoing HFJV during SWL with the Seimens[R] Lithostar Modularis, a third-generation lithotripsy machine, required significantly less total shocks (3754 vs.
Given that the HFJV group required less total shocks, one might have expected to find the group undergoing HFJV would enjoy decreased operating room time.
Our study is the first to compare stone movement during ESWL using SV or HFJV The stones in the SV group moved more than the HFJV group, but less than that reported using IPPV via an ETT (34 mm) (1).
