abstract

  • Use of a retrograde lavage catheter utilizing a Water-Pik for the removal of stone fragments during an extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy (ESWL) treatment is described. Three of 4 patients treated to date have been essentially stone-free at the end of their ESWL treatment. Urinary extravasation and ureteral stricturing have not occurred.
