Disease relevance of Lithotripsy


High impact information on Lithotripsy


Chemical compound and disease context of Lithotripsy


Biological context of Lithotripsy

  • Peroral lithotripsy under endoscopic control performed immediately after EPT would be the most practical solution, but this technique implies the use of new fiberscopes and other energy supplies that are easier to handle [15].
  • The effectiveness of intravenous meperidine and warm local anesthetic for prevention of postanesthetic shivering was evaluated in urology patients undergoing epidural blockade for extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy [16].

Anatomical context of Lithotripsy


Associations of Lithotripsy with chemical compounds


Gene context of Lithotripsy

  • Plasma levels of beta-endorphin (beta-EP), met-enkephalin (met-ENK), ACTH, cortisol, and prolactin were measured in 20 patients who underwent extracorporeal gallstone lithotripsy (ESWL) before the treatment, at 500 shock waves (SW) (15-20 min), at 1000 SW (40-50 min), and 10 min after the end of ESWL [27].
  • Percutaneous rotational contact biliary lithotripsy: initial clinical results with the Kensey Nash lithotrite [28].
  • Cavitation effects during lithotripsy. Part II. Clinical observations [29].
  • This report documents the usefulness of color Doppler sonography for early verification of urinary stone fragmentation during extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy with ultrasonographic focusing [30].
  • Three urinary enzymes, N-acetyl-beta-glucosaminidase, beta-galactosidase and gamma-glutamyl transferase were monitored in 17 patients before and after a single, unilateral extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy treatment [31].
