The pulsed dye laser was used to fragment ureteric calculi in 10 pig ureters, compared to electrohydraulic disintegration in six pig ureters. The stones were impacted in the proximal ureter and approached by rigid ureteroscopy. Four ureters did not have stones impacted but had ureteroscopes passed. The stones were fragmented and the particles left to pass… CONTINUE READING
