Installation, accommodation, and maintenance features are discussed. The Dornier M.P.L. 9000 represents a third-generation lithotripter for both kidney and gallbladder stones with an ultrasound localization system tubules shock-wave coupling. The use of TH M.P.L. 9000 was limited by ultrasound-guided localization of kidney stones, upper ureteral calculi causing obstruction, and intramural lower ureteral stones.
