Associations of Lithotripsy, Laser with chemical compounds


Gene context of Lithotripsy, Laser

  • High energy pulsed dye laser lithotripsy (Candela MDL-2000), with energy output upgraded to a maximum of 140 mJ. at the laser fiber tip using the 320 mu core fiber, was compared to the initially commercialized device, with the energy output fixed at 60 mJ. using the 200 mu core fiber (Candela MDL-1) [11].
  • For the laser-induced shockwave lithotripsy (LISL) the laser-pulses of a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser produce an optical breakdown in the irrigation liquid surrounding the urinary stone [16].
  • Laser lithotripsy shows the best results in CBD stones [17].
