Abstract

The development of a pulsed Nd:YAG Laser in Q-switched mode allowed the mechanical desintegration of concrements. After successful in vitro studies there were done animal experiments. The results, which are reported recently, showed no severe soft tissued reactions and were the justification for clinical use (2).
