Traitement du Signal et de l'Image, Rennes I Univ., France", u'full_name': u'P. Rolland'}, {u'author_order': 3, u'full_name': u'J.-J. Patard'}] Proceedings of the 25th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (IEEE Cat. No.03CH37439), 2003

The percutaneous nephrolithotomy is a minimally invasive surgery that is employed to remove larger stones (calculi) in the kidney. This technique places a nephroscope into the kidney through a small tract set after a small incision in the patients back. During the tract positioning, there are risks of kidney bleeding and of injury of other organs near the kidney such ...

Kujawska'}] IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control, 1994

Lithotripter generated compressional peak pressure (p/sup +/) was measured after penetrating tissue samples 0.5, 1, 2.5, and 4 cm thick. The samples were taken from fresh pig kidneys and insonated by shock wave pulses with positive peak pressures varying from 14 to 72 MPa. The measurement results allow one to draw some qualitative conclusions concerning the attenuation process in the ...

B\xf6l\xfcm\xfc, 06530, Ankara, Turkey', u'full_name': u'Bulent Yilmaz'}] 2009 14th National Biomedical Engineering Meeting, 2009

Lithotripsy systems are commonly used to break kidney stones into fragments. Nowadays these systems are also used in orthopedic operations. There are several ongoing investigational studies on lithotripsy systems in the treatment of cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Because of these new application areas we need novel lithotripter designs for different kinds of treatment strategies. The best way to reduce design ...


Modification of the design of the invasive lithotripter sheath for effective urinary calculi disintegration

[{u'author_order': 1, u'affiliation': u'MacMillan Rehabilitation Center, Toronto, Ont., Canada', u'full_name': u'M.E. Nasr'}] Proceedings of 17th International Conference of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1995

Human urinary calculi is still a major problem facing urologists and scientists. Besides the standard surgical removal it has been shown that these stones can be removed by non-surgical disintegration using invasive or non- invasive techniques. This paper describes an in-vitro experiment performed to study the effect of a modification introduced to the design of the sheath being used with ...
