PMID:  2606496     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The in vitro action of a xenon-chlorine (XeCl) excimer laser on biliary calculi is reported: fluence threshold and rate for ablation process are given. An analysis of gaseous products evolved during irradiation of gallstones, performed through an infrared spectrophotometric technique is also reported. Based on the different results, we discuss the mechanism of destruction.
