DUOLITH® SD1 »T-Top«

The first shock wave system for urological pain therapy


Facts and figures



DUOLITH® SD1 is an effective and long-term treatment for Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS) and Induratio Penis Plastica (IPP). Scientific studies have proven the effectiveness of focused shock waves on both indications.

Focused shock waves are used in the treatment of CPPS and IPP. The effectiveness of this modern shock wave equipment is determined by the individually selectable, dynamic and powerful energy range and the therapeutic depth of focus that can be chosen. Deep-lying areas can be treated easily, with the large focus zone making it easier to access these areas with a high degree of accuracy.

CPPS

Application area »CPPS« - Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome

»Prostatitis« is one of the most frequent disorders to be diagnosed in routine urological outpatient practice. In the majority of cases, the patient is not suffering from a bacterial illness, but from »chronic abacterial prostatitis« or Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome, (CPPS, classification 3A/B in accordance with EAU guidelines). The quality of life of sufferers can be hugely restricted. The degree of suffering of patients with chronic prostatitis is comparable to those suffering from heart attacks, angina pectoris and morbus crohn. All traditional therapy options have only shown a small degree of effectiveness or none at all. The origins of the disease are still not entirely clear. Studies on genesis and therapy are sparse, with there being virtually no evidence-based studies in existence.

Advantages for the patient

The advantages of Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy are due to the non-invasive nature of the outpatient treatment, which is simple and unproblematic to administer. Its is painless and free of side effects, and can in principle be repeated as often as needed. Also, no anaesthesia is required for the treatment.

IPP

Application area »IPP« - Induratio Penis Plastica

The occurrence of Induratio Penis Plastica in the industrialised countries is on the rise with an incidence rate of 1 – 5%, and even being as high as 12% according to some literature. Middle-aged men in particular suffer from the effects of this disease, the pathogenesis of which is still unknown. Although no threatening effects are to be expected, IPP often has a huge impact on the quality of life of the men suffering from this, especially as it can lead to erectile dysfunction.
