LithoClast® Trilogy - 48% faster that Olympus™ ShockPulse-SE Lithotripter - In bench studies, the Swiss LithoClast Trilogy Lithotripter fragmented and removed stones faster than other dual-energy systems. 1 - Study Methodology: Three lithotripsy systems were used to conduct this study, 10 trials were performed per device using 1cm3 cube-shaped BegoStones®, A single BegoStone was placed in a hemispherical silicone support in a water bath, Each lithotripter was utilized under direct vision to fragment and suction the BegoStones utilizing a 300cc/min constant suction rate and comparable fragmentation settings, The time to stone clearance for each trial was recorded and statistical analysis was performed. *For Swiss LithoClast Select, 10 trials were performed for each Ultrasound and Ultrasound and Pneumatic
