Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) was developed to treat human urolithiasis three decades ago.[sup.1] It has been established as a safe and effective therapy for upper urinary tract calculi and has become the primary method of intervention for many urologists.[sup.2]-[sup.6] While serious side effects are rare, transient cardiac dysrhythmias (CD) may be associated with ESWL.[sup.7]-[sup.12] Such events have been documented at rates of 60% to 80% with early lithotripters and have led to the development of electrocardiogram (ECG)-gated shock wave delivery systems for management and prevention.[sup.11,13,14]
