Lithotripters, Extracorporeal, Electromagnetic

Definition : Lithotripters that noninvasively disintegrate stones using focused external shock waves generated and delivered from electromagnetic generators. These lithotripters typically consist of electromagnetic generators where a magnetic field is produced by an electric current conducted through a coil attached to a thin metallic membrane; when the membrane is repelled by the magnetic field, a shock wave is generated. Extracorporeal electromagnetic lithotripters are intended for the treatment of urolithiasis (i.e., kidney calculi also known as kidney stones).
