Ballistic shock wave lithotripsy in an 18-year-old thoroughbred gelding. (1/366)

Prolonged postoperative recuperation time and restricted exercise were circumvented by using ballistic shock wave lithotripsy to break up an 8-cm diameter vesical calculus and by flushing out the sand-like residue under epidural anesthesia with the horse standing. Recovery was uneventful.  (+info)

Profiles in laparoscopy: Mouret, Dubois, and Perissat: the laparoscopic breakthrough in Europe (1987-1988). (2/366)

In the late 1980s, laparoscopy was essentially a gynecologist's tool. One of the French private surgeons, Phillipe Mouret of Lyon, shared his surgery practice with a gynecologist and thus had access to both laparoscopic equipment and to patients requiring laparoscopy. In March of 1987, Mouret carried out his first cholecystectomy by means of electronic laparoscopy. Although he never published anything about this experience, the news on his technique reached Francois Dubois of Paris. Although having no prior laparoscopic experience, Dubois acted immediately. He borrowed the instruments from gynecologists, performed his first animal experiments and, in April 1988, carried out the first laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) in Paris. Inspired by Dubois, Jacques Perissat of Bordeaux, introduced endoscopic cholecystectomy in his clinic and presented this technique at a SAGES meeting in Louisville in April 1989. Very soon, news of the French work in LC soon swept beyond the country's borders. Dubois and Perissat spoke enthusiastically about their work at the meetings and were largely responsible for establishing what is today called the French technique.  (+info)

Long term follow up of patients with chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic stones treated with extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy. (3/366)

BACKGROUND: There have been conflicting reports as to whether pancreatic ductal drainage achieved by endoscopy and lithotripsy improves the clinical outcome of patients with chronic pancreatitis. AIMS: To determine the clinical outcome in patients with chronic pancreatitis who received extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), and were followed up for two to eight years. METHODS: Eighty patients with severe chronic pancreatitis and endoscopically unretrievable obstructive stones underwent ESWL with a piezoelectric lithotripter between 1989 and 1996. Clinical status, relief of symptoms, further endoscopic or surgical interventions, and mortality were defined. RESULTS: Forty three (54%) patients were treated successfully with ESWL. The only feature associated with treatment success was the presence of a single stone rather than multiple stones. Successfully treated patients tended to experience less pain, although this did not reach statistical significance. A slight increase in weight was noted in our patients; however, there was no notable improvement in anomalous stools and diabetes mellitus. Five patients died due to extrapancreatic reasons. No pancreatic carcinomas developed. CONCLUSIONS: ESWL associated with endoscopic drainage is a safe technique that is particularly successful in patients with a single stone. However, pancreatic drainage by endoscopy and ESWL has almost no effect on pain in chronic pancreatitis. Furthermore, endoscopic management and ESWL does not prevent or postpone the development of glandular insufficiency.  (+info)

Relationship between kidney size, renal injury, and renal impairment induced by shock wave lithotripsy. (4/366)

The relationship between kidney size and impaired renal function induced by shock-wave lithotripsy (SWL) was examined in 6- and 10-wk-old anesthetized pigs. Each pig received 2000 shock waves, 24 kV, or sham SWL to the lower pole calyx of one kidney. Bilateral GFR, renal plasma flow (RPF), and para-aminohippurate extraction was measured 1 h before and 1 and 4 h after SWL. The kidneys were then removed for morphometric analysis. Mean kidney weights were 66.1+/-2.7 g (n = 9) and 103.1+/-3.3 g (n = 8) in the SWL groups, and 60.1+/-2.6 g (n = 9) and 82.3+/-4.0 g (n = 9) in the sham-SWL groups. SWL-induced lesions occupied a significantly greater volume of the small kidneys (6.1+/-1.7 vol % versus 1.5+/-0.2 vol% in the large kidneys). RPF was significantly reduced by SWL in small and large kidneys, but to a significantly greater extent in small kidneys. RPF was also significantly reduced in the contralateral kidneys of both groups, but only at 1 h after SWL. SWL significantly reduced GFR to similar degrees in both kidneys of both groups, regardless of kidney size. Para-aminohippurate extraction was likewise reduced to similar degrees in both groups, but this effect was evident only in the SWL-treated kidneys, and only in the pole to which the shock waves had been applied. The injury induced by SWL affected a larger fraction of small kidneys than large ones, and the renal vasoconstriction induced by SWL was greatest in small kidneys.  (+info)

National trend of the incidence of urolithiasis in Japan from 1965 to 1995. (5/366)

BACKGROUND: A nationwide survey of urolithiasis in Japan was made in order to evaluate the chronological trend of upper urinary tract stones in the Japanese. It succeeded previous studies done in 1955, 1966, 1979, and 1990. METHODS: All outpatient visits to urologists that resulted in a diagnosis of first-episode upper urinary tract stones in the years 1990 and 1995 were enumerated, irrespective of admission and treatment. The study enrolled all of the Japanese Board of Urology-approved hospitals, thereby covering nearly all urologists practicing in Japan. The annual incidence by sex and age was estimated and compared with the incidences in the previous nationwide surveys. RESULTS: The age-adjusted annual incidence of first-episode upper urinary tract stones in 1995 was estimated as 68.9 per 100,000 (100.1 in men and 55.4 in women), a steady increase from 54.2 in 1965. The annual incidence has increased in all age groups, except in those of the first three decades. The peak age for both sexes has shifted in toward the older population's direction. Estimations of longitudinal changes between 1965 and 1995 showed that the annual incidence has more than doubled for the cohort of the 1965 census population (from 43.7 in 1965 to 110.9 in 1995) and that younger generations have had progressively higher annual incidences. CONCLUSIONS: The annual incidence of upper urinary tract stones in Japan has increased steadily over the past 30 years and will continue to do so in the near future, but it still is lower than in the United States.  (+info)

The effect of discharge voltage on renal injury and impairment caused by lithotripsy in the pig. (6/366)

The present study was designed to determine the effects of shock wave voltage (kV) on lesion size and renal function induced by shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) in the 6- to 8-wk-old pig. Each SWL-treated pig received 2000 shock waves at 12, 18, or 24 kV to the lower pole calyx of one kidney. A group of sham SWL pigs served as time controls. Bilateral GFR, renal plasma flow (RPF), and para-aminohippurate (PAH) extraction were measured 1 h before and 1 and 4 h after SWL in all treated and sham animals. The kidneys were removed at the end of each experiment for morphometric analysis. The SWL-induced lesion increased significantly in size as shock wave energy was increased from 12 to 24 kV. PAH extraction, a measure of tubular function, was not significantly affected at 12 kV, was transiently reduced at 18 kV, and was reduced for the duration of the experiment at 24 kV. GFR and RPF, however, were significantly and similarly reduced at the 1 h post-SWL period at all three kilovolt levels. At the 4-h post-SWL period, both GFR and RPF had returned to baseline levels. Lesion size and tubular injury were correlated with changes in kilovoltage, while changes in renal hemodynamics were already maximal at the lowest discharge voltage. These findings suggest that renal microvessels are highly sensitive to shock waves and that frank injury to tubules and vessels may be more closely related to discharge energy than is renal blood flow.  (+info)

Section 4--bioeffects in tissues with gas bodies. American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine. (7/366)

Several animal models have exhibited thresholds for petechial hemorrhage in lung within the current output of diagnostic ultrasound systems. In addition, thresholds for damage in the mouse intestine due to diagnostic pulses of ultrasound have been explored. The implications for human lung and intestinal exposure to clinical diagnostic ultrasound have not yet been determined. In this section, the data supporting the thresholds of petechial hemorrhage in these organ systems and the morphological observations will be reviewed. The potential mechanical mechanisms of damage to these organs due to diagnostic ultrasound also will be reviewed. Special attention will be given to the occurrence of inertial cavitation both in vitro and in vivo. The effects of ultrasound parameters, age, and species on the threshold for damage in animal models will be explored.  (+info)

Management of gallstones and their complications. (8/366)

The accurate differentiation of gallstone-induced biliary colic from other abdominal disease processes is the most crucial step in the successful management of gallstone disease. Despite the availability of many imaging techniques to demonstrate the presence of gallstones, clinical judgment ultimately determines the association of symptoms with cholelithiasis and its complications. Adult patients with silent or incidental gallstones should be observed and managed expectantly, with few exceptions. In symptomatic patients, the intervention varies with the type of gallstone-induced complication. In this article, we review the salient clinical features, diagnostic tests and therapeutic options employed in the management of gallstones and their complications.  (+info)

Endourology and Stone Disease Transureteral Lithotripsy Versus Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy in Management of Upper Ureteral Calculi A Comparative Study Mohammad Reza Nikoobakht, Ala Emamzadeh,
Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) is a non-invasive treatment of kidney stones (urinary calculosis) and biliary calculi (stones in the gallbladder or in the liver) using an acoustic pulse. It is also reported to be used for salivary stones and pancreatic stones. Beginning in 1969 and funded by the German Ministry of Defense, Dornier began a study of the effects of shock waves on tissue.In 1972, on the basis of preliminary studies performed by Dornier Medical Systems, an agreement was reached with Egbert Schmiedt, director of the urologic clinic at the University of Munich. The development of the Dornier lithotripter progressed through several prototypes, ultimately culminating in February 1980 with the first treatment of a human by SWL.The production and distribution of the Dornier HM3 lithotripter began in late 1983, and SWL was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1984. The lithotriptor attempts to break up the stone with minimal collateral damage by using an ...
Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) introduced in the early 1980s transformed the treatment of patients with kidney stone disease. Patients who once required major surgery to remove their stones could be treated with ESWL, and no incision was necessary. As such, ESWL is the only non-invasive treatment of kidney stones, requiring no incision or internal telescopic device.ESWL involves a series of shock waves to the targeted stone. The shock waves, which are generated by a machine called a lithotripter, are focused by x-ray onto the kidney stone. The shock waves travel into the body, through skin and tissue, reaching the stone where they break it into small fragments. For several weeks after treatment, those small stone fragments are passed out of the body in the urine.In the two-plus decades since ESWL was first put into practice in the United States, we have learned a great deal about how different patients respond to this treatment. We can now recognize patients who will be less likely to
Background/aim: An experimental study was performed to evaluate the effect of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) on the distribution of interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) in rabbit renal pelvis and proximal ureter. Materials and methods: Six New Zealand rabbits were included. Right kidneys were exposed to a total of 3000 shock waves (14 kV) by using an electrohydraulic-type ESWL device. Right sides were allocated as the ESWL group (EG, n = 6) and left sides as the control group (CG, n = 6). Tissues were harvested on day 7. Tissues were examined histopathologically for the presence of edema, inflammation, congestion, hemorrhage, fibrosis, and vascularization. Mast cell tryptase and CD117 (c-kit) staining was performed for ICC distribution. Results: Although increased tissue edema in renal pelvises and increased inflammation in ureters were observed in EG, no statistical difference was detected between groups (P , 0.05). In CG, positive CD117 staining was detected in 2 renal pelvises and ...
Background. Chronic pancreatitis is very rare in childhood and causes chronic/relapsing abdominal pain, frequent hospitalizations, malnutrition, growth retardation, and stone formation in the main duct. Although pancreatic extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (P-ESWL) is commonly used in the treatment of pancreatic stones (PS) in adults, the use in children is still controversial. An adolescent girl with multiple PS is presented to discuss the use of ESWL as a treatment alternative in children with PS. ...

To evaluate the effect of diuretics on ureteral stone fragmentation and clearance during therapy with extra corporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), we studied 87 patients with ureteral stone at different levels and treated with ESWL. The patients were randomized into two groups treated by standard ESWL; the treatment protocol included 3500 shock wave per patient in each session, energy of the shock in two groups was 13 to 9 kv per patient, and the number of sessions was 3 per patient. The first group included 43 patients who received only ESWL, while the second group of 44 patients received as well 40 mg of furosemide. Stone fragmentation rate was 81% and 93.1% and stone clearance rate was 68.2% and 88.4% for the first and the second groups, respectively. With diuretics, fragmentation was 18.8% more in the middle ureteral stones, 16.9% more in the upper tract stones, and 5.4% more in the distal stones. Moreover, clearance of fragmented stones was 38%, 28%, 15.4% more at middle and upper and ...

The Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) technique uses sound waves (also called shock waves) to break a kidney stone into very small pieces that can more easily travel through the urinary tract and out of the body. ESWL is usually reserved for stones that are in the kidney and not in the ureter. ESWL is not appropriate for women who are pregnant, people with a kidney or urinary tract infection, those with certain anatomic abnormalities and anyone with a bleeding disorder. ESWL is usually reserved for stones that are in the kidney and not in the ureter.. This procedure is popular because:. ...

The overall rate of stone clearance in this study was found to be in line with the reported stone free rate of centres with static machines. The overall stone free rate of 93% found in this study is significantly different from what was described in a recent study by Nafie et al., reporting a stone clearance rate of 49% [7]. In the study by Nafie it was speculated whether the low rate of stone clearance was due to a relative high proportion of patient with stones in the lower pole (43.3%). This is in significant contrast to a stone clearance of 93% for lower pole stones found in the present study, were 44% of the stones were located in the lower pole.. With regard to patient selection, information on the lower pole anatomy was not available and might have favoured stone clearance rates in this study but is unlikely to account for such large differences. Furthermore, the efficacy of ESWL is very dependent on the skills of the technician performing the treatment and in the present study treatments ...
Herein we present our experience in 5,000 cases of reno-ureteral lithiasis submitted to treatment at the Extracorporeal Lithotripsy Unit of Hermanos Ameijeiras Hospital in Havana, Cuba, from April 1986 and during a period spanning 30 months. Treatment was exclusively by extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) in 85.5% of the patients and in combination with other procedures in 14.5% (endoscopic maneuvers in 5.9%, percutaneous nephrostomy 4.4%, open surgery 3.6%, and percutaneous nephrolithotripsy 0.6%). Complications were observed in 7% of the cases: ureteric obstruction (6.4%) with or without infection, perirenal hematoma (0.4%), and obstructive anuria (0.2%); acute urinary infection of different clinical types, some of which were very severe, were observed concomitantly in 2.6% of these patients. Two months following treatment, 86% of the cases were completely stone-free. At 6 months 96.2% were completely stone-free; the remaining 3.8% were classed as residual lithiasis.

If you are suffering from kidney stones, then you have reached the right place. For kidney stones disease and treatment, consider the best in the business.
You will be positioned on an operating table. A soft, water-filled cushion may be placed on your abdomen or behind your kidney. The body is positioned so that the stone can be targeted precisely with the shock wave. In an older method, the patient is placed in a tub of lukewarm water. About 1-2 thousand shock waves are needed to crush the stones. The complete treatment takes about 45 to 60 minutes.. Sometimes, doctors insert a tube via the bladder and thread it up to the kidney just prior to SWL. These tubes (called stents) are used when the ureter is blocked, when there is a risk of infection and in patients with intolerable pain or reduced kidney function.. After the procedure, you will usually stay for about an hour then be allowed to return home if all goes well. You will be asked to drink plenty of liquid, strain your urine through a filter to capture the stone pieces for testing, and you may need to take antibiotics and painkillers. Some studies have reported stones may come out better if ...
The primary goal of this study is to verify the applicability of a miniature wet-coupling device specifically designed for shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) and its effect on improving the stone comminution efficiency. Despite the technical and functional improvements implemented in the recent years, modern shock wave lithotripters have failed to re-achieve the treatment outcome of their ancestor, the original Dornier HM3. The defects of the dry-coupling approach used in contemporary lithotripters have been considered as one of the key factors that contribute to their reduced stone fragmentation efficiency. Therefore, this study aims at addressing this drawback by designing and developing a new coupling device to substitute the contemporary dry-coupling device.

2 cm) with good stone-free and complication rates. Holmium laser lithotripsy had superior initial success and re-treatment rate compared to Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) in a 2013 trial. The experimental Thulium Fiber Laser (TFL) is currently being studied as a potential alternative to the Holmium:YAG laser (Ho:YAG) for the treatment of kidney stones. The TFL has several potential advantages compared to Ho:YAG laser for lithotripsy, including a four times lower ablation threshold, a near single-mode beam profile, and higher pulse rates, resulting in up to four times as fast ablation rates and faster procedural times. Pulsed dye lasers have been used with fiber diameters of 200-550 microns for lithotripsy of biliary and urinary stones. Holmium:YAG lasers have wavelength of 2100 nm (infrared) and are used for medical procedures in urology and other areas. They have qualities of CO2 and Nd:Yag lasers, with ablative and coagulation effects. Holmium laser use results in smaller ...
Lithotripsy (also known as shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) and extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL)) is a method of fragmenting stones in the kidney or ureter. Not all departments have access to lithotripsy. Many hospitals have a mobile or visiting service that comes periodically to treat patients. In 2009, Oxford obtained a new fixed site lithotripter (Storz SLX-F2) which is permanently in the department to treat stones.. We have a dedicated team of doctors, nurses and radiographers who deliver this service. Information about how lithotripsy works and a comparison with other treatments can be found here.. ...
Kidney stones are a major public health concern with continuously increasing worldwide prevalence. Shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) is the first line treatment choice for upper urinary tract calculi with ureteroscopy and has advantages of safety and noninvasiveness, but the treatment success rate of SWL is lower than that of other therapies. It is therefore important to identify predictive factors for SWL outcome and select a suitable treatment choice for patients with upper urinary tract calculi. In recent years, computed tomography (CT) has become the gold standard for diagnosis of upper urinary tract calculi. Several factors based on CT images, including skin-to-stone distance, mean stone density, stone heterogeneity index, and variation coefficient of stone density, have been reported to be useful for predicting SWL outcome. In addition, a new method of analysis, CT texture analysis, is reportedly useful for predicting SWL outcomes. This review aims to summarize CT parameters for predicting the outcome

Kidney stones form when minerals precipitate out of urine in the urinary tract, most commonly inside the kidneys themselves. The stones can block urine flow, damage the kidneys, and be extremely painful. Most kidney stones can pass out of the body in urine without any need for intervention beyond monitoring and pain management. Larger kidney stones, however, require medical intervention to get them out of the body. There are two basic ways to remove kidney stones other than the natural process. These are lithotripsy (literally, breaking stones from the Greek) and surgery. Lithotripsy. In lithotripsy, the goal is to break the kidney stone into smaller pieces that the body will then be able to pass through the urinary tract normally and naturally. There are two types of lithotripsy that are commonly used to break up kidney stones. One is extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), also known as ultrasound lithotripsy or ultrasonic lithotripsy. The other is laser lithotripsy. ESWL. ESWL uses ...

This large multicenter study provides valuable information not only about the role of bile salts in the treatment of gallstones by extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy, but also about the efficacy of lithotripsy in the United States. The data show that lithotripsy plus ursodiol is more effective than, and as safe as, lithotripsy alone for treatment of symptomatic patients with gallstones. However, the rates of complete gallstone dissolution are low when compared with the 63% rate of complete dissolution at 6 months that was reported in Germany, where the technology was developed (1). The dissolution rates may have been lower because the lithotripsy treatments used lower voltage levels and fewer shock waves or because a combination of urso- and chenodeoxycholate was not used. The rates also may have been lower because the analysis was done conservatively, on an intention-to-treat basis. Other investigators have also reported lower dissolution rates than those reported in Germany. The study has ...

N2 - In studies of cells or stones in vitro, the material to be exposed to shock waves (SWs) is commonly contained in plastic vials. It is difficult to remove all air bubbles from such vials. Because SWs reflect at an air-fluid interface, and because existing gas bubbles can serve as nuclei for cavitation events, we sought to determine in our system whether the inclusion of small, visible bubbles in the specimen vial has an effect on SW-induced cell lysis. We found that even small bubbles led to increased lysis of red blood cells (1- to 3-mm diameter bubbles, 9.8 ± 0.5% lysis, n = 7; no bubbles, 4.4 ± 0.8%, n = 4), and that the degree of lysis ...
Shock wave lithotripsy has been used for many years now for treatment of kidney stones. This might be old news to some people but i learned about this recently that around 2006-2007, there was a big debate about SWL causing DM and HTN. Results from a retrospective study of 630 patients by researchers at the Mayo Clinic showed a more-than-threefold increased risk of diabetes and a 1.5-fold increased risk of hypertension among patients who underwent SWL 19 years previously compared with a cohort of matched, conservatively treated, nephrolithiasis patients. This was published in the Journal of Urology. ...
Shockwave lithotripsy (SWL) is a non-invasive method for the treatment of urinary stones. SWL is utilized to replace surgical removal of urinary stones. In SWL, stones are fragmented by applying acoustic energy from outside of the body. One of the main issues with the current clinical use of SWL is the incomplete fragmentation of stones. These incomplete fragments can cause extreme pain when they are discarded. They can also act as nidus for additional stone formation.. In SWL treatments, mechanical stresses of incident shockwave and the collapse of cavitation bubble cloud on the surface of the stone are the main causes of stone fragmentation. Cavitation bubbles are formed by the tensile portion of the lithotripsy waveform and typically have a lifespan of about 1 ms, which is much shorter than the time interval between consequent shockwaves in lithotripsy with typical firing rates rage of 0.5-2 Hz. However, the residual micron sized bubbles following a cavitation cloud collapse have a longer ...

The primary goal of this dissertation was to assess the feasibility of transforming an electromagnetic (EM) shock wave lithotripter with an acoustic lens as its focusing device from the original axisymmetric pressure distribution to a non-axisymmetric steerable acoustic field. This work was motivated by the desire to better match the distribution of effective acoustic pressure and pulse energy with the trajectory and anatomical features around renal and ureteral calculi during clinical shock wave lithotripsy (SWL). The acoustic field transformation was accomplished by the design of a fan-shaped acoustic barrier (mask) placed on top of the lithotripter acoustic lens to selectively reduce the source aperture along the direction of the barrier axis, therefore effectively broadening the beam width (,italic,BW,/italic,) of the lithotripter field in this preferred direction. Moreover, the geometry of the original lens (L1) was modified so that the acoustic focus of the new lens (L2) at high output ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy in Pillar Pain After Carpal Tunnel Release. T2 - A Preliminary Study. AU - Romeo, Pietro. AU - dAgostino, M. Cristina. AU - Lazzerini, A.. AU - Sansone, Valerio C.. PY - 2011/10. Y1 - 2011/10. N2 - Pillar pain is a relatively frequent complication after surgical release of the median nerve at the wrist. Its etiology still remains unknown although several studies highlight a neurogenic inflammation as a possible cause. Pillar pain treatment usually includes rest, bracing and physiotherapy, although a significant number of patients still complain of painful symptoms two or even three years after surgery. The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of low-energy, flux density-focused extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) in the treatment of pillar pain. We treated 40 consecutive patients with ESWT who had pillar pain for at least six months after carpal tunnel release surgery, and to our knowledge, this is the first study that ...

The pathogenesis of tendon degeneration and tendinopathy is still partially unclear. However, an active role of metalloproteinases (MMP), growth factors, such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and a crucial role of inflammatory elements and cytokines was demonstrated. Mechanical stimulation may play a role in regulation of inflammation. In vitro studies demonstrated that both pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) and extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) increased the expression of pro-inflammatory cytokine such as interleukin (IL-6 and IL-10). Moreover, ESWT increases the expression of growth factors, such as transforming growth factor β(TGF-β), (VEGF), and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1), as well as the synthesis of collagen I fibers. These pre-clinical results, in association with several clinical studies, suggest a potential effectiveness of ESWT for tendinopathy treatment. Recently PEMF gained popularity as adjuvant for fracture healing and bone regeneration. Similarly to ESWT,
Allsports Podiatry is proud to introduce the latest technology in evidence-based practice on chronic pain management internationally. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy, or ESWT, has a proven 80% clinical efficiency in the treatment of painful and chronic soft tissue conditions such as plantar fasciitis.. Based on high energy radial soundwaves generated through the specifically designed probe, the unit delivers high energy shockwaves into the underlying tissues. This has shown through clinical research, free to examine on web databases, to increase vascular flow and improve healing. The resultant acute trauma caused also regulates neurotransmitter overactivity that is often believed to be a key component to chronic ligament and tendon pathologies.. Developed from technology used in the treatment of kidney stones, ESWT has been widely used in Europe and North America for the past 10 years. The application to soft tissue pathologies has been indicated in the assistance of pain management and to ...
The potential application of an Erbium:YAG (Er:YAG) laser (Qo equals 50 mJ/pulse; (tau) p equals 275 microsecond(s) ; rep. rate equals 2, 10 Hz) with a sapphire delivery fiber for intracorporeal laser lithotripsy was explored. Preliminary measurements on calculus mass-loss and fragmentation efficiency were conducted and results were compared with that of Ho:YAG laser lithotripsy. Laser induced bubble and lithotripsy dynamics were investigated to assess the mechanism(s) involved in the fragmentation process. Results showed that the fragmentation efficiency (mass-loss/Ho - g.micrometers 2/J) in Er:YAG laser lithotripsy was about 2.4 times that of Ho:YAG laser lithotripsy (used: Qo equals 500 mJ/pulse; (tau) p equals 250 microsecond(s) ; rep. rate equals 10 Hz). Acoustic transients were found to have minimal effect during Er:YAG laser lithotripsy. Schlieren flash images suggested a predominantly photothermal mechanism due to direct laser energy absorption, which resulted in recrystallization and ...
Research is on-going to identify new methods of biostimulation to increase the effect of botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A) in the treatment of spasticity. The Spasticity treated by Botulinum Toxin and ESWT (SBOTE) study is a prospective, randomized controlled trial assessing the effectiveness of extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) given immediately after BTX-A injections compared with electrical stimulation (ES) given immediately after BTX-A therapy for the management of focal upper limb spasticity in stroke patients.

A shock wave treatment apparatus has a shock wave applicator including a shock wave transducer for forming a focusing region of a shock wave for destroying an object to be destroyed in an object to be examined, and an ultrasonic transducer for transmitting/receiving an ultrasonic wave and acquiring ultrasonic tomographic image information. The shock wave applicator is aligned with the object to be destroyed, such that an overlap degree between a focusing region of the shock wave and the object to be destroyed is discriminated by an overlap degree discrimination circuit. When the calculation result of the overlap is smaller than a predetermined value, control is performed not to generate a shock wave. On the other hand, the shock wave application is mechanically aligned with the object, such that a support device supporting the applicator is operated so that a focal point position of the shock wave in the object to be examined can be moved to coincide with the object to be destroyed.

Dıscussıon. Lymphatic ducts draining renal parenchyma and capsule which are rich in lymphatic ducts are drained via renal hilum into the lateral aortic and interaortacaval lymph nodes. Chyluria is a condition explained by Ackermans obstructive theory firstly in 1893 are generally benign but can cause serious morbidity. In this theory, it is proposed that lymphatic fluid is drained to urine by a fistula between renal lymphatics and pelvicaliceal system (1,2). Chyluria is occurred in Southeast Asia, South America and Asia because of parasitic infections like filariasis, and cysticercosis echinococcus. On the other hand in Europe, North Asia and North America granulomatos infection, neoplasia, lymphatic malformations and kidney surgery and trauma are reasons for chyluria. All of these diseases can cause chyluria by lymph calyceal fistula because of obstruction in lymphatic ducts (2). In chyluria cases which are treatment resistant or not treated for a long time, renal dysfunction, nephritic ...

For several hours after the procedure you may have a burning feeling when you urinate. You may feel the urge to go even if you dont need to. This feeling should go away within a day. Drinking a lot of water can help.. Your doctor may prescribe an antibiotic. This will help prevent an infection.. You may have some blood in your urine for 2 or 3 days.. Your doctor may have placed a small tube inside one of your ureters. Ureters are the tubes that connect the kidneys to the bladder. The small tube the doctor may have placed is called a stent. It may help the stone fragments pass through your body. Your doctor may remove the stent in a few weeks.. Most stone fragments that are not removed pass out of the body within 24 hours. But sometimes it can take many weeks. If you have a large stone, you may need to come back for more treatments. ...

INTRODUCTION. Some healthcare professionals recently have been using pharmacology to increase the rate of urinary stone passage. Research has focused on the effectiveness of the two most commonly used medical therapies for small distal ureteral calculi in the juxtavesical or intramural tract: calcium channel blockers and the α adrenergic blocker tamsulosin.. Renal colic, one of the most painful conditions that may occur, is often caused by a stone in the distal portion of the ureter. A trial of conservative therapy is warranted for the majority of ureteral stones in the absence of infection and severe obstruction. Studies have shown a spontaneous passage rate of 71% to 98% for small (, 5 mm) distal ureteral stones [1,2].. The efficacy of minimally invasive therapies such as extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL) and ureteroscopy (URS) has been proven by several studies [1,3]. Nevertheless, these techniques are not risk-free and they are expensive [4].. The use of hormones, nonsteroidal or ...

Background/study aims Laser lithotripsy can effectively fragment complicated biliary stones, but current cholangioscopes are limited by fragility, restricted mobility or moderate visual resolution. The efficacy and safety of a new digital single-operator peroral cholangioscope to guide laser lithotripsy were evaluated. Patients and methods In this prospective single-center series, consecutive patients with complicated biliary stones, defined as impacted stones , 1.5 cm in size and wider than the more distal common bile duct, or stones that failed extraction by basket mechanical lithotripsy, underwent ERCP and SpyGlass DS peroral cholangioscope (Boston Scientific, Marlborough, United States)-guided laser lithotripsy ...

Calyceal diverticulae are congenital smooth-walled, non-secretory urothelium-lined cavities within the renal parenchyma that communicate with calyceal fornix through a diverticular neck. They were first described by Rayer in Traitements des maladies des reins [1]. Calculi occur in approximately 9.5% to 50% of diverticulae [2]. They are relatively uncommon and have been reported in 0.21% to 0.6% of patients undergoing renal imaging, with 3% occurring bilaterally [3]. These can be asymptomatic, or alternatively patients can present with pain, haematuria, and urinary tract infection. If complete obstruction of the diverticular neck occurs, then sepsis and abscess formation can result. Hypertension can also occur consequent to renal parenchymal injury [4].. Common techniques for treating these calculi would involve retrograde intrarenal surgery / ureterorenoscopy (URS), extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL) and percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). ESWL has been reported to render patients ...

Shock wave therapy (SWT) is technology derived from lithotripsy; a technique to break down kidney stones using sound wave energy. In the 1990s, SWT was found to be successful in treating certain musculoskeletal conditions. Radial shock wave therapy (rSWT) delivers a low-energy shock wave. It has evolved from more expensive medical technology.. The energy of rSWT is produced by a low frequency ballistic compression, creating an acoustic sound (or pulsed pressure) shock wave. The shock wave is directed at the selected treatment site to stimulate metabolism and enhance circulation. The shock energy assists disorganized tissue to gradually recover through tissue regeneration and repair models. Treatment sessions are short and moderately uncomfortable. rSWT is safe, and can be used by a physiotherapist in the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders.. Conditions that benefit from SWT: Research is accumulating in the use of pulsed pressure rSWT. Evidence supporting its use has been published in ...

ESWL is an effective, non-invasive therapy utilized to fragment stones in the kidney and subsequently be cleared in the urinary tract. Although lithotripsy provides a safer alternative to invasive treatments for removing stones, ESWL may cause vasoconstriction after ESWL treatment, reducing renal blood flow, which can cause kidney damage leading to acute to chronic hypertension clinically. This may be due to kidney vascular endothelial dysfunction, which is characterized as increased oxidative stress and decreased endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS)-derived nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability. We hypothesized that ESWL would decrease NO and increase hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in rat renal veins. Rats given tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4), the essential cofactor of eNOS coupling, would cause a decrease in H2O2 release and increase in NO release compared to ESWL + saline controls. On the contrary, when dihydrobiopterin (BH2), the cofactor for eNOS uncoupling, is given at the end of ESWL treatment we predict an
