Extracorporal shock wave lithotripsy

Poster Session 03

  • Location:
    Room Milan, North Hall (Level 1)
  • Chairs:
     K.H. Andreassen, Frederiksberg (DK)
     R. Cleveland, Boston (US)
  • Aims and objectives of this session

    ESWL was been the method of first choice in stone treatment for two decades. Endourology has now taken this role of many indications. However, the idea of (almost) no-touch stone disintegration is convincing and new technological developments may turn back the clock.

  • Poster viewing of 20 minutes. Presentations will take place on stage. Standard presentations are 2 minutes in length, followed by 2 minutes for discussion.
