During the last decade there has been a rapid development in flexible nephroscopy, flexible ureterorenoscopy, laser lithotripsy and instruments for stone manipulation. We are going to review the use of Laser in the management of lithiasis in different situations. Efforts should be made to minimize renal injury and lasers play a significant role in patients with urolithiasis and horseshoe kidneys, chronic renal failure, neurological patients.
