The history of mobile shock wave lithotripsy

The history of mobile shock wave lithotripsy

Shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) has been one of the most innovative therapy procedures in urology over the last decades. During the first few years, however, small hospitals could not afford to purchase a lithotripter owing to its high cost. This explains why ever since the pioneering days of SWL there has been a demand for mobile lithotripsy to make this revolutionary technology more easily available also in remote regions.

Mobile Stosswellenlithotripsie mit Tradition

Mobile Stosswellenlithotripsie mit Tradition

Eine der innovativsten urologischen Therapieformen der letzten Jahrzehnte war die Stosswellenlithotripsie (SWL). Aufgrund der hohen Kosten in den ersten Jahren konnten sich kleinere Krankenhäuser die Anschaffung eines Lithotripters nicht leisten. Daher bestand seit den Pioniertagen dieser Therapieform ein Bedarf an mobiler Lithotripsie, damit die revolutionäre Technologie auch in abgelegen Regionen zur Anwendung kommen konnte.

Focus on kidney stones with MODULITH SLX-F2

Focus on kidney stones with MODULITH SLX-F2

Kidney stones are a disease of civilisation that affects almost 5% of the population in the course of their lives. The annual incidence rate for renal calculi in Germany, currently at almost 1.5%, is on an upward trend and the condition is frequently associated with significant pain. About 50% of patients experience relapse within a period of 10 years if the stone formation remains untreated. These figures clearly reflect the importance of modern stone management.

Nierensteine im Fadenkreuz mit dem MODULITH SLX-F2

Nierensteine im Fadenkreuz mit dem MODULITH SLX-F2

 

Nierensteine sind eine Zivilisationskrankheit, die fast 5 % der Bevölkerung im Laufe des Lebens erleiden. Mit steigender Tendenz sind jährlich fast 1,5 % der Bevölkerung neu von diesem Krankheitsbild mit oft sehr schmerzhaftem Verlauf betroffen. Innerhalb von 10 Jahren erleiden ca. 50 % ein Rezidiv, sofern die Steinbildung unbehandelt bleibt. Diese Zahlen zeigen, welche Bedeutung einer modernen Steintherapie heute zukommt.
