Abstract

Methods available for performing intracorporeal lithotripsy include ultrasound, electrohydraulic lithotripsy and Laser lithotripsy. Experience in 38 patients with ureteral calculi using a new device for performing intracorporeal lithotripsy, the Swiss Lithoclast, is presented. A total of 73.7% of patients were stone-free and 15.8% presented residual fragments. The Lithoclast is considered a safe, effective and inexpensive means of performing intracoporeal lithotripsy for ureteral calculi.
