Conference paper


Clinical observations such as the inevitable macrohematuria and the occasional renal hematomas have led investigators to the assumption that shock waves have more damaging effects on renal tissue than originally suspected. This assumption was confirmed in various experimental studies (Jaeger et al. 1988). Of great interest are the possible biochemical changes which might occur along with the morphological ones; if they do, are they to be considered as indications of permanent renal function deterioration or not.
