EHL Infographic
Both electrohydraulic lithotripsy (EHL) and holmium laser may be used in conjunction with the SpyGlass DS System to manage large biliary stones. The SpyGlass DS System combined with lithotripsy devices such as the Autolith Touch System for EHL provides the capability to fragment biliary stones under direct visualization, which helps to enable an increased stone clearance success rate3 in single session treatments.*
Direct visualization stone clearance utilizing EHL has been shown to be clinically effective with demonstrated procedural success in 90% of patients, with single-session stone clearance rates of 76%.4 Achieving single session stone clearance and reducing the need for a repeat procedure(s) may deliver greater patient satisfaction and decrease unnecessary procedural costs.

The American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy finds EHL not only to be effective, “but relatively inexpensive” compared to other modalities, such as laser lithotripsy.5
