Comparative evaluation between one ultrasonic and two single-probe dual energy lithotripters: in vitro and in vivo experiment in a porcine model

M.Lattarulo et. al

Swiss LithoClast®️ Trilogy has been designed to provide powerful fragmentation and more efficient stone removal for shorter PCNL procedural time. Scientific research proves this effectiveness, in comparison to other, existing lithotripters, as well as in actual OR cases.
In a new study, Lattarulo et al. tested the Swiss LithoClast Trilogy in vitro and in vivo in porcine model, and concluded that the device is twice as fast on both soft and hard stones as compared with best competitors.


Intracorporeal Lithotripsy Stone Retrieval for PCNL

Chosen by the experts: Swiss LithoClast®️ Trilogy - fast, easy and safe stone management!

Principal investigator: Amy E. Krambeck, Indiana University, Indianapolis, USA

Main goal of this multi-center, prospective, randomized trial, conducted by Dr. Krambeck and her team, was to discover the benefits of combination devices used to perform lithotripsy - both standard and mini PCNL (percutaneous nephrolithotomy).
