Burst Wave Lithotripsy: Promising New Technique in Non-Invasive Treatment

Burst wave lithotripsy (BWL), an innovative new technique, may be a more efficient and accessible option in non-invasive kidney stone treatment.

According to a human study led by @UW’s Jonathan Harper, MD, 90% of stones were fragmented into pieces smaller than 2mm in under 10 minutes, with negligible tissue injury. Unlike ESWL, BWL uses short harmonic bursts of ultrasound energy to fragment stones, potentially eliminating the need for sedation or anaesthesia.
