Session

ESWL: Any news?

Poster Session 37

  • Location:
    Room Paris (Hall B2, level 0)
  • Chairs:
     A.A. Al-Zarooni, Sharjah (AE)
     A. Neisius, Mainz (DE)
     R.D. Smith, London (GB)
  • Aims and objectives of this session

    ESWL was applied to most stones in the kidney and ureter for decades, but today improvements of endourological procedures led to a significant decrease in ESWL frequency. Since a few years, however, the interest in ESWL seems to rise again and interesting new developments are seen.

  • Poster viewing of 20 minutes. Presentations will take place on stage. Standard presentations are 2 minutes in length, followed by 2 minutes for discussion.
