The authors present a technique of treating chronic calculous pyelonephritis with laser radiation and sinusoidal modulated currents which promotes a complete elimination of the calculus fragments in 100, 70 and 50% of the patients in the stone size 0.2-0.5 cm, 0.5-0.7 cm and > 7 cm, respectively. This combined therapy had also antiinflammatory, and immunity-stimulating effects.

The cause of stones formation in kidneys are rather various, one of which is membranes distabilisation of renal tubuls and infringement of colloid system.

For an estimation ofefficacity of influence magneto-laser therapy on frequency of a stones relapse we studed 68 patients from 18 to 70 years old, after natural stone elimination within one to three months. The estimation of activity stone formation was made on the basis of a phenomenon “Shatochina-Shabolma”. 33 patients were treated with medicines and medical plants. The therapy was given according to the nature of the stone. 35 patients besides common therapy got magneto-laser therapy on a kidneys area, the number of sessions was 8-12 during course of treatment.

The results of research have shown, that in group of the patients who have received magneto-laser therapy only in 2 (5.7 %) patients in a month have come active stone formation , m 9 (25.7 %) – in 2 months, in 17 (48,6 %) – in 3 months, and in 18 (51.4 %) – active stone formation 3 months later was not revealed. At the same time in the group of control receiving common therapy, active stone formation was revealed in a month in 13 (39.4 %) patients, in 2 months – in 21 (63.6 %), and in three months – in 29 (87.9 %) and only in 4 (12.1 %) patients active stone formation was not revealed.

Thus, magneto-laserotherapy in patients with stone disease is pathogenicaly reasonable with laser radiation stabilizing influence on biomembranes, that brings about colloid systems normalization and decreasing the risk of stone formation.
