About these proceedings
Disintegration of kidney and gall stones by intense laser radiation is becoming increasingly important as a complementary technique to extracorporeal shockwave treatment. This book gives for the first time a complete overview of laser lithotripsy combining a critical comparison of the methods and a thorough evaluation of instrumental developments and clinical applications. Readers from the medical as well as from the engineering side will find it a stimulating source of information on all aspects of laser-stone interaction.
