Abstract

The safety and effectiveness of the first-generation Dornier HM3 lithotripter has been well established. The Siemens ‘Lithostar’ is a second-generation machine which produces the shock wave by an electromagnetic induction in a water-filled tube, thereby avoiding the need for a water bath. Stone localization is achieved by bi-planar x-rays.
