Abstract

Nd:YAG-Laser are used in curative and palliative surgery. The development of a pulsed Nd:YAG Laser now also allows the desintegration of concrements. The presupposition for clinical use of such technique is a system that gives necessary energy in very short pulses and high repetition rate to avoid thermic lesion and a flexible transmission system that can be brought through the working channel of flexible endoscopes.
