The paper presents the way laser light affects tissue, especially kidney tissue. Animal experiments include the use of Nd:YAG laser in kidney surgery. When the outcome of these experiments turned out to be good Nd:YAG laser was used to operate on kidneys in 45 human patients. The results of a five-year follow-up period of these patients let Nd:YAG laser be considered a good tool to cut and coagulate renal parenchyma.
