Large mesenteric hematoma after extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy for pancreatic stones: A case report.

Mesenteric hematoma after extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) for pancreatic stones is a very rare complication which has never been reported before.

The role of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy in the future of stone management.

of review The most relevant recent findings on the use of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) in adult population to provide an insight of its role in the current and future of stone treatmen...

Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy is safe and effective for geriatric patients with chronic pancreatitis.

Pancreatic extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (P-ESWL) is first-line treatment for chronic pancreatitis (CP) patients with pancreatic stones. However, the performance of P-EWSL in geriatric patient...

Single extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy for proximal ureter stones: Can CT texture analysis technique help predict the therapeutic effect?

To explore whether the computed tomography texture analysis (CTTA) technique can help predict the curative effects of a single extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy (ESWL) for proximal ureteral stones...

Comparison of the Efficacy of Ultra-Mini PCNL, Flexible Ureteroscopy, and Shock Wave Lithotripsy on the Treatment of 1-2 cm Lower Pole Renal Calculi.

To compare the efficacy of new percutaneous technique ("ultra-mini PCNL", UMP), shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) and flexible ureteroscopy (FURS) on the treatment of 1-2 cm lower pole kidney stones, and t...

Intraoperative Assessment of of Burst Wave Lithotripsy (BWL)

Burst Wave Lithotripsy (BWL) is a novel method of urinary stone fragmentation that uses multi-cycle bursts of low amplitude ultrasound to induce stone fracture. This is in contrast to trad...

Comparison of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) Alone and ESWL Plus Endoscopy for Painful Chronic Pancreatitis

Endoscopy is an established method of treatment for painful obstructive calcified pancreatitis. It involves the disintegration of calcifications using extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy...

Is There is a Role of Prophylactic Therapy With Tamsulosin Before Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy to Avoid Development of Steinstrasse ?

The purpose of this study is to determine if there is a role of prophylactic therapy with tamsulosin prior extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy to avoid development of steinstrasse. 150 p...

Efficacy of Flomax to Improve Stone Passage Following Shock Wave Lithotripsy

The majority of kidney stones are treated with shock wave lithotripsy (SWL). We are examining if the medication Flomax will result in improved stone passage rates following SWL.

The Alternating Bidirectional Versus The Standard Approach During Shock Wave Lithotripsy For Renal And Upper Lumbar Ureteric Stones

compare the outcomes of SWL for renal and upper lumbar ureteric stones using the alternating bidirectional approach versus the standard approach.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The destruction of a calculus of the kidney, ureter, bladder, or gallbladder by physical forces, including crushing with a lithotriptor through a catheter. Focused percutaneous ultrasound and focused hydraulic shock waves may be used without surgery. Lithotripsy does not include the dissolving of stones by acids or litholysis. Lithotripsy by laser is LITHOTRIPSY, LASER.

Sudden, violent, and often destructive expansion of gases which propagates energy outward, such as a shock wave, ejecting fragments and debris at high velocities.

A family of heat-shock proteins that contain a 70 amino-acid consensus sequence known as the J domain. The J domain of HSP40 heat shock proteins interacts with HSP70 HEAT-SHOCK PROTEINS. HSP40 heat-shock proteins play a role in regulating the ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATASES activity of HSP70 heat-shock proteins.

Shock produced as a result of trauma.

A subfamily of small heat-shock proteins that are closely related to ALPHA B-CRYSTALLIN. Hsp20 heat-shock proteins can undergo PHOSPHORYLATION by CYCLIC GMP-DEPENDENT PROTEIN KINASES.
