The Accordion and CoAx kidney stone devices have several benefits which have been identified and clinical tests seem to indicate that the Accordion and CoAx stone management devices may increase ureteral diameters under irrigation which might improve the stone visibility for the surgeon. These devices, save time, minimize anti-retropulsion of fragments and stones, lower renal pressures, and save time for the surgeon. In addition, the Accordion and Coax devices are highly resistant to damage from inadvertent contact with lasers or lithotripsy energy sources.
Anti-retropulsion of the kidney stones during therapy means more control and less time required to treat for the surgeon.
The Accordion and CoAx advanced design provides endourologists with an innovative approach to improving their control while treating kidney and ureteral stones.
