As we start to move towards recovery, you need access to technologies that will help you and your department deliver efficient and effective care to patients.
When taking on additional caseload to reduce waiting lists, you need access to financing models that are transparent, helping you plan the impact for your department.
Reducing waiting lists
Always Ready, Always Available
Increasing waiting lists is the number one acute concern for endourologists in the current environment. LithoVue is always ready, always available and provides consistent performance even in complex cases2 giving you complete confidence while you manage your patient back-log.
By eliminating many of the steps required to use, maintain and handle reusable ureteroscopes, the LithoVue system facilitates higher physician productivity and greater throughput.3-6
By offering a single-use solution, the LithoVue system eliminates the inconsistent performance associated with reusable scopes.7-10 Go to the LithoVue product page.
Swiss LithoClast® Trilogy Lithotripter
Because efficiency matters
A dual-energy, single-probe lithotripter safely fragments and removes stones faster than other leading dual-energy lithotripters.11-13
Because User Experience Matters
Swiss LithoClast® Trilogy Lithotripter delivers it all in a single, integrated, plug-and-play system. Its design can make it easy to set up in the OR – and simple for physicians and staff to learn and use.
- Intuitive User Experience: Centralized touch screen controls designed to simplify the customizing of energy and suction settings
- Enhanced Versatility: Choose from an expanded range of probe sizes compatible with most commonly used endoscopes. Minimally invasive percutaneous (MIP) stone treatments now available. Ultrasonic and ballistic energy is generated, independently or simultaneously, with suction
- Seamless Stone Collection: A proprietary Stone Catcher provides seamless collection of stone fragments for analysis – potentially reducing manual retrieval with additional devices
"Using Trilogy has changed how I think about scheduling my operating lists, with three PCNLs in a day now a possibility."
Mr. O.Wiseman, Cambridge UK
"Trilogy is suitable for MIP - minimally invasive percutaneous surgery”
Prof. Dr. Udo Nagele, Hall in Tyrol Austria
"Trilogy was too efficient and finished the case too early and underutilised my list, although this was great for the patient with a significantly shorter operating time and better stone clearance.”
Mr. K. Saeb-Parsy, Cambridge UK
"Trilogy breaks stones faster.“
Dr. Thomas Kunit, Salzburg Austria
