Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL)
ESWL uses shock waves to break a kidney stone into small pieces that can more easily travel through the urinary tract and pass from the body. Patient lie on a cushion, and the surgeon uses X-rays or ultrasound tests to precisely locate the stone.
Machine used – Siemens Modularis Variostar (Modularis covers virtually all urological procedures – and even more. Using Modularis Variostar we can set the shock wave head in different angles – enabling doctor to choose the therapy position he needs. It is equipped with electromagnetic shock wave system.
