Stiegel launches the Duet Magna Lithotripter, state of the art technology in the field of urology
Electromagnetic DSWL Double Shockwave Lithotripsy at Viet Duc Hospital, Hanoi, Vietnam.
The Duet Magna introduces the combination of electromagnetic technology and the double shockwave concept, allowing for some clear and unique advantages in the field of shockwave lithotripsy.
The Butterfly Focal Area
|The Duet Magna is equipped with two reflectors and performs Double Shockwave Lithotripsy (DSWL) from these two sources. DSWL results in the formation of a unique Butterfly Focal Area that concentrates pressure to the stone from two different angles, and spreads the “head and tail” of the shock wave volume to reduce the risk of kidney damage.|
Distribute the Energy to Reduce Renal Damage
The clear advantage of Double Shockwave Lithotripsy lies in the fact that the total number of shocks is divided between two areas of the kidney so that only half of the shocks propagated towards the stone pass through the lower part of the kidney, while the other half pass through the upper part. This double shockwave significantly reduces the potential kidney damage comparing to a single reflector.
The Duet Magna DSWL System has both CE and USA FDA Certification.
