PRESS RELEASE

 

Dornier MedTech Announces Presentation of 3 Posters at American Urology Association 2018

 

San Francisco, 18 May 2018 – Dornier MedTech (Dornier), a global leader in innovative kidney stone management, today announced the presentation of three posters at the American Urology Association Annual Meeting taking place in San Francisco on 18 – 21 May 2018.

 

During the meeting, new data will be presented on the utilization of big data to evaluate outcomes of extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy treatment of urological stones by Dornier’s partner, Translational Analytics and Statistics. Results from a cross validation study of 3,894 treatment records of renal and ureteral stones show that Dornier’s novel analytic algorithm, which uses historical detailed patient and stone characteristics and intraoperative treatment parameters, can assist physicians in making informed treatment choices which could translate to better clinical, evidence-based decision-making and patient outcomes.

 

Dornier MedTech will also be presenting two posters on holmium laser lithotripsy for the treatment of urological stones.

 

“Dornier is committed to establishing a growing body of clinical evidence that demonstrates its continued commitment to clinical leadership in urology,” said Abel Ang, President and CEO of Dornier MedTech. “As the global market leader in urological disease treatment, we understand the need for urologists to make evidence-based decisions on the most effective treatment modalities. We are proud to be the first and only company to utilize big data and analytics to assist urologists in optimizing treatment protocols and, ultimately, patient outcomes. This is a key step in using precision medicine in treating kidney stones.”
