About Intracorporeal Pneumatic Lithotripsy
Lithotripsy is a procedure that breaks up stones in the kidney, bladder, or ureter. In Lithotripsy procedure the physical destruction of hardened masses like kidney stones, Bladder Stone and Uteter Stone.
In the cases where the Extracorporeal Lithotripsy proves to be unsuccessful, Intracorporeal Pneumatic Lithotripsy (endoscopic lithotripsy) is the alternative treatment method.
Intra Corporeal Pneumatic Lithotripter coverts Kinetic impact energy to a mechanical strain which is passed through probe to the calculus. Lithotripter Hand Piece converts Kinetic Energy to Mechanical Strain and it is passing through probe. When energy is transmitted from the Lithocast probe to the calculus, the result is disintegration of the calculus.
Formation of the Stone in human body
The hyper concentration of the dissolved chemicals in the urine crystallizes them. Such crystals form up the stones anywhere in the Kidney, Bladder and Ureters. The stones may vary in size, number and consistency according to their chemical compositions.
There are different types of stones such as Calcium Oxalate, Calcium Phosphate, Uric Acid, Struvite, Cystine and Xanthine etc.
Procedure of Intracorporeal Pneumatic Lithotripsy
Intracorporeal Pneumatic Lithotripter is powerful and based on pneumatically driven projectiles that strike a metallic probe placed endoscopically on a calculus. Probe is passing through rigid endoscopic channel and placed on stone.
Stone (Calculus) break by Ballistic energy and convert in to small fragments. Fragments will be collect by endoscopic basket (Stone Basket) or grasper (Forcep).
These devices work best when they are used through a rigid endoscope, and they can be associated with stone migration during treatment.
Advantage of Intracorporeal Pneumatic Lithotripsy
- Safe and cost effective procedure.
- Success rates are 73%- 100%.
- Most effective method for the removal of large calculi.
- Faster stone removal compare to other stone removal procedure.
- No heat generation on the tip of the probe so no damage to the mucosa.
- Tissue remains unchanged.
