Bloomington, Ind.-based Cook Medical said in a news release that the Litho 150 is the most recent product in Quanta’s line of laser systems and it complements Cook’s line of urologic stone management disposables. The system has indications for use in a variety of endoscopic and urological surgeries, including benign prostatic hyperplasia procedures and urological stone management.
Litho 150 also consists of an advanced cooling system that makes the machine run quietly, along with a Virtual Basket pulse modulation feature that allows for fine lithotripsy and minimal stone movement without the need for expensive additional fibers, Cook Medical said.
Additionally, Litho 150 includes the Vapor Tunnel low-energy pulse feature designed to create a vapor bubble between the laser tip and stone to allow for a more powerful pulse for ablation. Finally, the MasterPulse technology feature allows for the adjustment of laser settings with seven different pulse width steps for retropulsion control.
“We are proud to offer this innovative product,” Cook Medical urology specialty director Rob Faulkner said in a news release. “The Litho 150 is an all-inclusive laser. It comes with the latest technologies, all of which can be accessed using standard fibers so there is no added expense for dedicated fibers. It’s the perfect addition to our product offerings—helping Cook Medical be the single source of urological disposables and the latest laser technology.”
