EXTRACORPOREAL SHOCKWAVE LITHOTHRIPSY WITH EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE DUE TO DOUBLE-LAYER PIEZO TECHNLOLOGY
The PiezoLith 3000 is the result of continuous research and development by Richard Wolf GmbH, the most innovative manufacturer of piezoelectric shockwave systems.
The unique small and ergonomic design of the piezoelectric shockwave source was the result of using double-layer technology. Its most important quality features are an excellent performance and an unusually long lifespan. The PiezoLith 3000 uses several thousand piezo-ceramic elements to generate shockwave energy for highly effective and almost painless treatment. The elements are arranged in a mosaic pattern and are precisely aligned with the therapy focus.
The precisely defined focal zone offers optimal protection of the surrounding tissue. The unique preset triple focus ensures that the shockwave is optimally adapted to the hardness and size of the individual stone.
“This study shows that, out of 58 patients with ureteric stones, lithotripsy with the Wolf Piezolith 3000 was more successful than the Modulith SLX.”
