Dornier MedTech Launches the DORNIER DELTA® III – Most Advanced Kidney Stone Treatment Lithotripter
ATLANTA, Ga, July 11, 2017 – Dornier MedTech® America, a global medical device company and the pioneer of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL®), has received FDA clearance to market the Delta® III. This is the latest generation of the world’s best-selling and most clinically cited lithotripter, the Delta II.
The Delta III reflects Dornier’s continued commitment to developing the most cutting-edge solutions for kidney stone treatment. Compared to its predecessor, the Delta III provides improvements of:
- Powerful IMAGING (for improved stone visualization)
- Maximized ENERGY (to treat more stones in more patients)
- Enhanced EFFICIENCY (with time saving features to serve more patients)
Powerful IMAGING: the system provides improved imaging quality with 400%2 more power and two imaging modalities (Ultrasound or X-ray) for better stone visibility.
Maximized ENERGY: the New 180 EMSE (+25% larger2) delivers more power for enhanced penetration depth to treat larger patients. In a 183 patient clinical study, the new 180 EMSE was shown to deliver a similar 95% stone free success rate – for patients with BMI higher than 25, as with patients with BMI below 25.3 Combined with Dornier’s exclusive Opticouple®, an optical camera system, visualized air bubbles are removed in the coupling gel at the interface of the therapy head and patient’s skin via the user. Clinical research4 shows a 43% increase in effectiveness with less shock waves energy needed per treatment.
Enhanced EFFICIENCY: Additionally, the Delta III increases ease of use and improves time saving workflow with its patent protected Unified Hand Control with precise fingertip control of the lithotripter, table and X-ray C-arm movements.
The Delta® III is proudly made in Munich, Germany.
