Sep. 10, 2010

Santiago de Chile, September 2010 - DirexGroup participated at the 30th Annual meeting of the Confederation of American Urology which was held at the Sheraton San Cristobal Conference Center between September 8 and 11. DirexGroup's presence has, once again, reinforced its strong presence in the Andean market.  Along with its local distributor, Otarola Ingenieria, Direx presented to physicians and visitors its wide range of electromagnetic ESWL lithotripters, including the Magna and Integra systems, plus their latest 20W Holmium Laser device.

Dr. Sandro Varea, Head of the Department of Urology at Hospital Privado in Mar del Plata, Argentina, and one of our key reference sites in the region, presented his initial treatment results with the Dual Shockwave MAGNA lithotripter in patients suffering from litiacis.  After treating several patients using MAGNA's electromagnetic device with the double shockwave technology, Dr. Varea presented promising results; thereby attracting much physician audience attention with his presentation.  "The double shockwave treatment is a safe and effective procedure" said Dr. Varea.  (click here to download the presentation)
