abstract

  • Use of the "blast path" may be helpful in patients where positioning for ESWL treatments is difficult. Good pressures are maintained along the blast path and an alternate fracture mechanism may be in effect. The rate of fragmentation, assessed using model material, decreases with distance beyond F2.
