Holmium Laser Lithotripsy: In-Vitro Investigation of Optimum Power Settings in Fragmentation, Dusting and Propulsion and Stone Breaking Times

Mehmet Solakhan

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 14, 2019

An experimental urinary system model was created. Stones previously taken during the operation were used for the procedure. For this purpose, stones with Ca-oxalate and Ca-phosphate were used. Kidney and ureter model was prepared under laboratory conditions. Irrigation catheter with a lumen of 15 mm was used for the ureter model. 9F rigid ureterorenoscope (Storz/Germany) was used to reach the stone. DORNIER MEDILAS H SOLVO/30 W-Germany laser was used for stone crushing. 275 and 550 microfibers were used for stone crushing as laser fiber. Eight different stone crushing settings were determined ...

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 20, 2019

Successful implant osseointegration is dependent primarily upon adequate bone quantity and quality at the desired implant site. But often times the implant candidate, after proper clinical examination and evaluation of the patient’s diagnostic information, lacks adequate bone quantity or volume for implant placement. Often times, the patients has adequate height of bone but lacks bone width. The ability to predictably generate horizontal bone or bone width in preparation for dental implants, or guided bone regeneration (GBR) is an important and necessary procedure, in implant site preparatio...

Robotic Radiosurgery to a Patient with Locally Advanced Cervical Cancer and Uterus Didelphys - A Case Report and Review of Literature

Janis Morgenthaler, Christhardt Kohler and Simone Marnitz

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: October 05, 2019

Consolidation brachytherapy is a critical treatment component for locally advanced cervical cancer. The use of alternatives (linac based stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) or external beam (EBRT) boosts) on linacs compromise oncologic results in cervical cancer patients. Our patient, a 32-year old woman with a 5 cm FIGO IIB cervical cancer, had a uterus Didelphys and was therefore not suitable for intracervical brachytherapy. Instead, she received a brachytherapy emulating robotic radiosurgery boost using CyberKnife. 3 months after treatment she had a complete radiologic and pathologic response.....
