Electrohydrolic Lithotripsy

Elec­tro­hy­drolic lithotrip­sy is a pro­ce­dure used to treat kid­ney, pan­cre­at­ic, and bile duct stones. Elec­tro­hy­drolic lithotrip­sy uses an elec­tro­hy­draulic device to deliv­er high-ener­gy shock waves to break apart stones that are too hard to pass on their own. Once bro­ken up the stones will either pass on their own or will be extract­ed by your doc­tor dur­ing the procedure.
