MARCHINI, Giovanni Scala et al. Conservative treatment of severe renal trauma after extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy. Rev. Col. Bras. Cir. [online]. 2011, vol.38, n.6, pp.447-449. ISSN 0100-6991.

Subcapsular and perinephric hematomas are relatively common after shock-wave lithotripsy, but high-grade kidney injuries are extremely rare. We present the first case of a high-grade kidney injury after shock-wave lithotripsy managed conservatively. A 57-year-old white female patient with left 1.5cm superior ureteral calculi was submitted to shock-wave lithotripsy.

Keywords : Extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy; Laceration; Urolithiasis; Hematoma.
