Laser applications for intracorporeal lithotripsy

Innovative technology and the most advanced components permit maximum power output.
The two MegaPulse30+ systems feature a Holmium YAG Laser with a peak power rating of 30 watts. The new lasers achieve this power through a much higher energy level of up to 4.000 mJ and a much higher frequency of up to 25 Hz. This is even sufficient for stone dusting, a procedure with high frequency (20-25 Hz) and low energy (200-400 mJ). It enables stone fragments to be pulverized and simply flushed out, without having to use stone extraction baskets.

MegaPulse Desktop 30+ develops the highest power output possible for a desktop unit. The mobile Minitower with the same performance is the alternative to the desktop. The lasers have a power identification. This means that the laser regulates the individual maximum output power to ensure that e.g. thin fibers cannot be overloaded. A specific power spectrum is therefore available for each fiber. A total of six laser fibers (core Ø of 200 µm to 1000 µm) are available for disposable and resusable applications.

The main areas are outlined below:  

  • Ureteral stones
  • Kidney stones / stones in the renal calyx / especially stones located in the inferior calyx system
  • Bladder stones

Types of stone:

  • Cystine stones
  • Calcium oxalate stones
  • Calcium monohydrate stones

Alongside urology, the MegaPulse 30+ is licensed for further specialist disciplines:

  • Surgery
  • ENT
  • Gynecology
  • Arthroscopy
  • Gastroenterology
  • Spine surgery

The three adjustable modes significantly facilitate work.

  • Lithotripsy – for stone disintegration
  • Ablation – for removal of tissue
  • Coagulation – for cutting tissue
