April 19 — High frequency sound waves in audible to the human ear, can smash gallstones into small bits that could pass painlessly out of the body. The sound wave treatment offers hope for removing gall ! stones— and perhaps kidney stones also—without surgery. It was described today to the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology by a team of three doctors. They are Drs. Harold Lamport of the Yale School of Medicine and Herbert F. Newman and Ralph Eichhom of Beth Israel Hospital in New York. _ Their work so far has been done only on anesthetized rabbits and a dog. They found that the beam of sound waves would break up gallstones in five to 60 seconds. In this time the beam of sound didn't harm the living tissue around the stones. No sound-wave operation on humans has been tried yet. The right equipment doesn’t exist. But some is being developed bv tne Crystal Research Laboratories in Hartford. Conn. Gallstones form in the gall bladder, just under the ribs. They form from body chemicals, becom ing hard objects of any shape or size, even more than an inch long There may be only one. or hun dreds. each like tiny bits of grav el. They block the passage lead mg from the gall bladder to tha intestines. Human gallstones were placed inside loops or rabbit intestines and exposed to a short burst of regulated high frequency sound. About 80 per cent of the stones were fissured or broken up with no apparent harm to the sur i rounding living tissues.
