Steinstrasse

Steinstrasse [stīn′stra-se] is the German word for "stone street", a term coined by Egbert Schmiedt and Christian Chaussy, the German pioneers of ESWL in the 1980s describing a possibly complication of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) for urinary tract calculi in which stone fragments block the ureter to form a “stone street".
