Shockwave Lithotripsy (SWL) Under Selective, General Anesthesia.
Recruitment status was Not yet recruiting
SWL is widely used in the treatment of patients with renal and ureteral calculi. Several factors determine the success of extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (SWL) for kidney stones: stone size, stone location within the collecting system, stone type, and the SWL machine used. Moreover, in some cases it is very difficult to focus on the stone because of its movement as a results of breathing. In order to prevent stone movement we want to use a bronchial blocker, processing a selective ventilation of the opposite side of stone location.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Shockwave Lithotripsy (SWL) Under Regular General Anesthesia and Under General Anesthesia Using Bronchial Blocker.|
|Study Start Date:||November 2009|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||October 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
SWL under general anesthesia
Patients who failed in SWL under sedation(a standard protocol), will undergo a second SWL process under general anesthesia.
SWL under general selective anesthesia
Patients who failed in SWL under sedation(a standard protocol), will undergo a second SWL process under general selective anesthesia, using a bronchial blocker.
