In vitro comparison between HM-3 and MODULARIS lithotripters

Other Article

Shockwave lithotripsy (SWL) is currently the preferred method of treatment for renal calculi < 10 mm in size. Dornier introduced the electrohydraulic HM-3 in 1983, which has become the "gold standard" for SWL. Since then other types of lithotripters (electromagnetic and piezoelectric) have been developed. We compared the third-generation electromagnetic shockwave lithotripter Siemens MODULARIS to the HM-3 in vitro assessing acoustic measurement and stone comminution in a holder. Similar results were encountered. © 2007 American Institute of Physics.
