dity during PCNL treatments at our institution."

"We have found the Accordion CoAx Stone Control Device to be a valuable tool during PCNL procedures, as it both facilitates retrograde contrast injections for diagnosis and renal targeting as well as prevents antegrade fragment migration into the ureter," said Demetrius H. Bagley MD, Nathan Lewis Hatfield Professor of Urology, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Philadelphia, PA. "Unlike other catheters used for this purpose, the Accordion CoAx device, thanks to its occlusion-film design, does not move from the treatment location despite the patient handling inherent in PCNL procedures."

The Accordion CoAx Stone Control Device joins the currently available 7mm and 10mm PercSys Accordion(R) Stone Management Devices, which are used during ureteroscopic lithotripsy procedures to prevent the retrograde migration of stone fragments into the kidney. The 7mm and 10mm Accordion Stone Management Devices have been used in nearly 1,400 procedures since their introduction in 2007 and 2008, respectively.
