70th Congress of the German Society for Urology in Dresden
STORZ MEDICAL and Siemens Healthineers plan sales partnership for urology

  • Future collaboration will facilitate access for customers of both companies, and their patients, to the latest technologies for diagnostic imaging in urology and non-invasive therapy for urinary and renal calculi
  • Mobile C-arms in the Cios family from Siemens Healthineers, together with MODULITH® SLK »inline« from STORZ MEDICAL, will form an innovative solution for powerful shock wave lithotripsy and endourological interventions

On the occasion of the 70th annual congress of the German Society for Urology, DGU, (Dresden, September 26 – 29, 2018), Siemens Healthineers and STORZ MEDICAL have announced plans to enter into a sales partnership agreement. As part of their collaboration, the two companies plan to market each other’s systems to give their customers, and their customers’ patients, access to the latest technologies for diagnostic imaging in urology and non-invasive and minimally invasive therapy. The combination of mobile C-arms in the Cios family from Siemens Healthineers and the shock wave lithotripsy system MODULITH® SLK »inline« from STORZ MEDICAL is ideally suited for the removal of stones from the entire urinary tract using powerful extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL).

»Working with Siemens Healthineers, we can make our expertise in urology available to a broader range of customers and offer comprehensive solutions,« says Dr. Gerold Heine, CEO of STORZ MEDICAL. »The planned agreement highlights the great importance of urology to both companies,« affirms Peter Schardt, head of X-ray Products at Siemens Healthineers. »Together, we can facilitate access to the best possible diagnostic and therapy solutions for our customers and their patients.«

Using ESWL enables the stones to be located with both X-rays and ultrasound. Shock waves – targeted ultrasound waves generated outside the body – are aimed directly at the renal or urinary calculi, which break into small fragments and can then be eliminated. This non-invasive procedure and the low rate of complications represent a major benefit for the patients, and make the procedure a preferred treatment approach in many cases. Siemens Healthineers and STORZ MEDICAL will make an innovative system combination comprising selected models of mobile C-arms in the Cios family and the ESWL system MODULITH® SLK »inline« available to urologists for this purpose in the future.
