Abstract

The authors disintegrated 31 urinary caliculi in the kidney and the upper or middle ureter by intensive ultrasound from May 1983 to January 1984. Percutaneous nephrostomy is made under the guide of real time ultrasonography. After the endoscope is inserted into the urinary tract via nephrostomy, the vibratory rod is put on the stone. The stone is disintegrated by the intermittent vibration of the intensive ultrasound. There is no severe complication other than slight bleeding and fever.
