Lithotripters, Intracorporeal, Electrohydraulic

Definition : Intracorporeal lithotripters that use plasma-induced shock waves to fracture stones. A generator-powered probe fires energy pulses at the stone, while the probe is irrigated with a saline solution. The collapse of the resulting plasma bubble causes a hydraulic shock that fragments the stone into several pieces that can then be removed using a grasper or stone basket.
