Open surgeiy for the removal of renal and ureteric calculi has been rendered almost obsolete in the last ten years. The development ofthe extracorporeal and the intiOCOTpOTeaI lithotripters has permitted many patients to have their stones treated without operation. Several kinds ofalternative disintegration methods such as electrohydraulic lithotripsy, ultrasound lithotiipsy, stone disintegration by laser irradiation, electric drill disintegration, microexplosion lithotripsy and extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy have contributed to this advancement.
