To reduce the potential of vascular injury without compromising stone comminution in shock wave lithotripsy, an in situ pulse superposition technique has been developed to suppress intraluminal bubble expansion by modifying an HM-3 reflector based on theoretical analysis and pressure waveform measurement. Using high-speed imaging, it was found that the large Intraluminal bubble expansion was significantly suppressed using the upgraded ...

The current clinically available procedure for non-invasively treating renal calculi, extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), suffers from the fact that it can result in incomplete fractionation of the stone and confer damage to both renal and extra-renal tissues. We assessed the feasibility of using histotripsy to non-invasively erode kidney stones to fine debris and performed a comparison study with a ...


Beam steering of shock waves generated by a piezo-composite lithotriptor

None 1993 Proceedings IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium, None

In order to move the treatment area without displacing the shock wave generator, the authors propose a piezo-composite shock wave generator with electronic focusing. The array, is composed of 121 piezo-composite independent transducers arranged in a spherical shell 20 cm in diameter and focused at 190 mm. The electronic hardware includes 121×6 kV-impulse generators. The authors demonstrate experimentally that the ...

One in 11 Americans has experienced kidney stones, with a 50% average recurrence rate within 5-10 years. Ultrasonic propulsion (UP) offers a potential method to expel small stones or residual fragments before they become a recurrent problem. Reported here are preliminary findings from the first investigational use of UP in humans. The device uses a Verasonics ultrasound engine and Philips ...
