UreTron Ultrasonic Lithotripter
The UreTron Ultrasonic Lithotripter is a powerful, user-friendly system capable of fragmenting and evacuating all types of stones in the urinary tract.
Comprised of a generator, footswitch, ergonomic hand piece, and high-efficiency, disposable probe, the UreTron is a versatile system and fully compatible with all Richard Wolf nephroscopy instrumentation.
A Powerful Solution
With its unique microcontroller-based algorithm and sophisticated design, the UreTron transmits more energy to the probe in use than Richard Wolf's previous generation lithotripter. The system can also fragment and aspirate stones simultaneously while running at full power.
A Wide Range of Probes
The system features a variety of semi-flexible and rigid probes to treat calculi anywhere in the urinary tract. The probes’ single-piece design creates a larger suction channel for easier evacuation and the probe guide connector prevents probes from bending during a procedure.
Ease of Use
The UreTron is a true plug-and-play system that saves time and allows the user to focus on the most essential tasks during a case. The user only needs to power on the device and allow it to self-calibrate, which only takes a few seconds, before beginning a procedure.
The UreTron’s double-pedal footswitch allows the user to fragment hard and soft stones using side-by-side pedals. The blue foot pedal is optimized for the fragmentation of large and hard calculi, and the yellow pedal can be used to dust softer stones into small debris, which can be suctioned out through the probe channel.
Frequency Control Technology
Many ultrasonic lithotripters on the market rely on variations in amplitude and added mechanical energy to weaken the structure of a stone, but the UreTron uses frequency control to fragment calculi—a highly efficient, atraumatic approach.
