CONTACT LITHOTRIPSY WITH NEODYMIUM LASER IN UROLITHIASIS TRERAPHY

Approximately 950 patients with urolithiasis are being treated in Mogilev regional hospital per one year. About 15% of patients undergo surgeries (open intervention); about 60% of patients are exposed to the remote or contact lithotripsy. In 22 patients neodymium laser (laser surgical system, “Lazurite” (Russia) has been applied for the contact lithotripsy.
The age of the patients varied from 21 to 65. The size of calculi – from 4 to 22 mm., their densitometric density was within the limits of 600-1000 units, duration of calculus standing composed from 1 to 48 weeks. The time period of laser exposure varied from 10 to 166 seconds. The size of the calculus has been found out not to influence considerably the duration of laser run duration.
