Twenty (20) subjects presenting with a renal stone and candidates for FURS (flexible ureteroscopic renal surgery) will undergo a single FURS procedure for a kidney stone as part of the stu...
The purpose of this research study is to is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the FDA approved Holmium:YAG laser for reducing lower eyelid bags.
This is an observational study based on retrospectively collected data of ureter stone patients between 2011 and 2014. Aim of study is to determine radiologic findings of non-contrast abdo...
The purpose of this study is to study the outcome of patients after ureteroscopy in which all fragments remaining after holmium laser lithotripsy were retrieved compared to those where sma...
In this study, Investigators planned to compare Holmium Laser ejaculatory sparing and non-ejaculatory sparing (conventional) TUIP using both subjective and objective assessment tools for t...
The safety and efficacy of the combination of electronic choledochoscopy and holmium laser lithotripsy for complicated bile duct stones were assessed. In total, 20 patients participated in this study,...
The flashlamp-pumped, solid-state holmium:yttrium-aluminium-garnet (YAG) laser has been the laser of choice for use in ureteroscopic lithotripsy for the past 20 years. However, although the holmium la...
Urinary stones can be readily disintegrated by Holmium:YAG laser (Holmium laser lithotripsy), resulting in a mixture of small stone dust particles which will spontaneously evacuate with urine and larg...
To assess low and high power settings for the popcorn technique, and relationship of laser fiber-to-stone distance and calyceal size on submillimeter fragmentation. Our in-vitro findings may help guid...
Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) has been a mainstay therapy for the treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) secondary to benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) for nearly 20 year...
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
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.
Holmium. An element of the rare earth family of metals. It has the atomic symbol Ho, atomic number 67, and atomic weight 164.93.
A severe pain in the lower back radiating to the groin, scrotum, and labia which is most commonly caused by a kidney stone (RENAL CALCULUS) passing through the URETER or by other urinary track blockage. It is often associated with nausea, vomiting, fever, restlessness, dull pain, frequent urination, and HEMATURIA.
Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.
