Lithotripsy Treatment is classified as the use of shock waves to breakup or disintegrate stones. Lithotripsy Treatment is non- invasive modality of treatment for stone in which shock waves are delivered from outside and focussed on to stone leading to fragmentation. Lithotripsy requires local anaesthesia with sedation.
What is Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy Treatment
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (lithotripsy or ESWL) has been used for non-surgical fragmentation of stone. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWL) is shock wave therapy for fragmentation of stone. Shocks waves are delivered on the stone. Patients are usually treated as out patients; in some cases more than one session may be necessary
How does Lithotripsy Treatment work
Lithotripsy work on the basis of electromagnetic / electrohydraulic shock wave generation are focussed on the stone leading to fragmentation. About 1-3 thousand shockwaves are needed to crush the stones. The complete treatment takes about 45 min-60 min. Sometimes, the doctor inserts a tube via bladder and threads it up to the kidney just prior to ESWL. These tubes (called stents) are used when the stone is large to prevent the ureter getting blocked with fragments.
What does the Lithotripsy Treatment involve?
Lithotripsy Treatment is done under local anaesthesia with sedation. Patient is laid on the clinical bed and the applicator is applied on the side of stone. Shock waves are delivered depending on size, consistency of stone (1000-3000 each sitting). Repeat sitting is given if residual stone is present.
Precautions to be taken before Lithotripsy Treatment
Let the doctor know about any prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, or supplements you take.
If the treatment is taken with general anesthesia, your doctor may advice you not … Continue Reading ››
Micro Tese Treatment in delhi is reliable and affordable. Sperms are obtained from the tissues extracted from the testicles of the patients who have zero sperm cell in semen; and it is done with the help of high grade microscope. This entire process is called micro-TESE.
Micro Tese Treatment stands for Microsurgical Sperm Extraction. This involves an operation performed through a small midline incision in the scrotum, through which one or both testicles can be seen.
MICRO TESE TREATMENT FOR MALE INFERTILITY
With the advance and state of the art technology, sperm can be retrieved easily from the testicles of men with non-obstructive azoospermia. Microscopic testicular sperm extraction (MICRO TESE) is the microsurgical process in which a small part of the testicle tissue is removed from the areas of active sperm production with the help of a microscope and improve the sperm yield.
Seminiferous tubules (structures where sperm is produced and transported) containing sperm can often be identified under an operating microscope after opening the testicles. This approach has a number of advantages over other sperm retrieval techniques. It maximizes the yield of spermatozoa while minimizing the amount of testicular tissue required and vascular injury created, by making identification blood vessels easier
What does the patient expect from MICRO TESE Treatment Centre
The chance of finding sperm with Micro-TESE is better than 60%. This is twice the chances of finding sperm by non-microsurgical or needle biopsies taken by general urologists.
Who needs MICRO TESE Treatment
Lack of sperm during ejaculation may be due to several reasons:
A Person does not have any sperm within the ejaculate due to defective sperm production or due to blockage in the sperm channels.
