Scope note: The destruction of a calculus of the kidney, ureter, bladder, or gallbladder by physical forces, including crushing with a lithotriptor through a catheter. Focused percutaneous ultrasound and focused hydraulic shock waves may be used without surgery. Lithotripsy does not include the dissolving of stones by acids or litholysis. Lithotripsy by laser is LITHOTRIPSY, LASER.
Annotation: litholysis (dissolving calculi by acid) is disease /ther, not LITHOTRIPSY
Allowable Qualifiers: AE adverse effects
