They used a rigid ureteroscope to deliver ultrasonic lithotripsy
to a pelvic stone.

probe, diam 3.
1314 used lithoclast master that combines pneumatic and ultrasonic lithotripsy
and also give advantage of aspiration thereby improving vision during surgery.
The staghorn calculus was fragmented and removed using a combination of ultrasonic lithotripsy
, stone graspers and a nitinol stone basket.
relies on the piezoelectric effect of generating ultrasonic energy by applying a rapidly alternating electrical current to piezoelectric crystals.
One procedure now being done at Duke University, Mayo Clinic and numerous other sites across the country is ultrasonic lithotripsy
Transurethral removal of large ureteral and renal pelvic calculi using ureteroscopic ultrasonic lithotripsy
We interviewed several of the urologists who are performing the ultrasonic lithotripsy
, and all of them agreed that the German method, being non-invasive, is much superior.
