How can and should we optimize extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy?
Chaussy CG and Tiselius HG. Urolithiasis 2018 - Review. PMID 29177561 Free PMC article.
It is well recognized that the popularity of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (SWL), despite its non-invasive character, has decreased during recent years. ...The latter effect might to some extent be a result of the performance of the lithotripter used, but in too many cases, it is evident that the principles of how shock wave lithotripsy should be carried out are poorly applied. ...

Lithotripsy.
Leighton TG and Cleveland RO. Proc Inst Mech Eng H 2010 - Review. PMID 20349822
Shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) is the process of fragmentation of renal or ureteric stones by the use of repetitive shock waves generated outside the body and focused onto the stone. ...Currently, use of lithotripsy is waning, particularly with the advent of minimally invasive ureteroscopic approaches. The goal here is to review the state of the art in SWL and to present the barriers and challenges that need to be addressed for SWL to deliver on its initial promise of a safe, effective, non-invasive treatment for kidney stones....

A systematic review of advanced endoscopy-assisted lithotripsy for retained biliary tract stones: laser, electrohydraulic or extracorporeal shock wave.
Veld JV, et al. Endoscopy 2018. PMID 29991072
BACKGROUND: When conventional endoscopic treatment of bile duct stones is impossible or fails, advanced endoscopy-assisted lithotripsy can be performed by electrohydraulic lithotripsy (EHL), laser lithotripsy, or extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL). ...Although each advanced lithotripsy technique appeared to be highly effective, laser lithotripsy had a higher complete ductal clearance rate (95.1 %) than EHL (88.4 %) and ESWL (84.5 %; P  < 0.001). ...

[What is the current status of shock wave lithotripsy?].
Neisius A. Urologe A 2017 - Review. PMID 28766005 German.
BACKGROUND: Shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) became the therapy of choice for the majority of patients with urolithiasis early after its introduction in the early 1980s. ...PURPOSE: This contemporary review illuminates technical aspects and improvements of lithotripsy over recent years in context with the current guideline recommendations. ...

[Current status of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy in urinary lithiasis.].
Pereira-Arias JG, et al. Arch Esp Urol 2017 - Review. PMID 28300033 Spanish.
Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy has lost relevance in current practice due to endoscopic device development and unpredictability of results. ...Shock wave technology has evolved in the last two decades, however lithotripsy fundamental principle has not changed. ESWL has passed the test of time and centers dedicated to stone treatment should have a lithotripter in order to offer an appropriate balance in different options for different clinical situations. ...

Lithotripsy.
Whitfield HN. Br J Hosp Med 1988 - Review. PMID 3289661
Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), developed in the early 1980s, has been complemented by extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) and ureterorenoscopy (URS). ...

Overview of therapeutic ultrasound applications and safety considerations
Miller DL, et al. J Ultrasound Med 2012 - Review. PMID 22441920 Free PMC article.
In the 1980s, high-pressure-amplitude shock waves came into use for mechanically resolving kidney stones, and "lithotripsy" rapidly replaced surgery as the most frequent treatment choice. ...Undesirable bioeffects can occur, including burns from thermal-based therapies and severe hemorrhage from mechanical-based therapies (eg, lithotripsy). ...

Intracorporeal lithotripsy. Instrumentation and development.
Grocela JA and Dretler SP. Urol Clin North Am 1997 - Review. PMID 9048849
This article describes the history of intracorporeal lithotripsy and the impact of previous techniques on modern devices. Technical and clinical specifics for several historical and current intracorporeal lithotripsy methods are described....

Recent advances in lithotripsy technology and treatment strategies: A systematic review update.
Elmansy HE and Lingeman JE. Int J Surg 2016 - Review. PMID 27890653 Free PMC article.
In this review, we aim to place these advantages and limitations in perspective, assess the current role of SWL, and discuss recent advances in lithotripsy technology and treatment strategies. ...Careful attention to the rate of shock wave administration, proper coupling of the treatment head to the patient have important influences on the success of lithotripsy. ...

Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy in the treatment of renal and ureteral stones.
Torricelli FC, et al. Rev Assoc Med Bras (1992) 2015 - Review. PMID 25909212 Free article.
The use of certain technical principles and the selection of favorable cases can optimize the results of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL). ...A search was conducted on the Pubmed® database between January 1984 and October 2013 using "shock wave lithotripsy" and "stone" as key-words. ...
