By Jonathan Wright Humane Hospital Greenbrier Val- ley in Fairlea has become the first medical facility in the state to ac- quire a laser lithotripter, an instru- ment used to fragment kidney stones. The $240,000 Candela "Laser- Tripter" was purchased by Humana to treat patients whose kidney stones do not respond to treatment with the normal lithotripter. A typical treatment costs $900, not including surgeon's fees and hospital ex- penses. "Having this equipment is essen- tially a urologist's dream," Kyle Fort of Greenbrier Valley Urology Associ- ates said at a press conference April 18. Dr Fort is Chief of Staff at Hu- mane. The LaserTripter is used by in- serting a ureteroscope (a small in- strument with a light in it) into the patient's urinary tract and guiding it to the stone. The ureteroscope en- ables the physician to view and lo- cate the stone and provides pas- sage for the laser beam through a tiny, thread-like fiber directly to the surface of the kidney stone. The laser emits up to 20 pulses of light per second, containing enough energy to fragment the stone but not producing enough heat to damage surrounding tissue. The stone is broken into particles which are then passed naturally from the body in the urine. The treat- ment involves virtually no pain, ac- cording to Dr Fort, and takes as little as 20 to 30 minutes. r GOOD - "LOOKING GOOD- SEIJ.JNG ADVERTISEMENTS APPEAR IN THE MOUNTAIN MESSENGEI~ CONTACT OUR SALES DEPARTMENT TODAY. 647-5724 SEE MILLER IMPLEMENT • tteavy-duty lawn and garden (;" tractors with all-season versafiJity .. • Models from 14 to 20 hp (diesel or , • lrl'O hooks up a variety ot" attachments to tackle all your • Speed. direction a,,d i,,,t,leme,,t controls are close I -- at ha.d for easy operation Notlm Rta s Lik a 15ee 219 North, Lewisburg, WV 497-2777 ~u~)~~~~)~uu~u~a~ui~u~u~u~~u~.

Ask About Our Lay-A-Way ,j The Mountain Messenger, Thursday April 26, 1990 9A Dr Fort and registered nurse Carol Fowler demonstrated the equipment on a raw egg submerged in water. The laser broke the shell into small fragments while the egg membrane remained intact. The older lithotripsy procedure is used mostly for stones which are still in the kidney or in the upper third of the ureter. The newer Laser- Tripter treatment is used for stones in the lower ureter. Humana Hospital Greenbrier Val- ley is one of 24 hospitals east of the Mississippi River to have the new equipment. West Virginia is part of the southeast "stone belt," according to doctors, with a higher incidence of kidney stone trouble than the country as a whole.

Humana's mobile lithotripter untit is shared by Humane facilites in Richands, Virginia; Bluefield; and Fairlea. The LaserTripter will remain permanently at the Fairlea site, how- ever, according to doctors.
