After a brief history of extracoporeal therapies for calculosis, with particular attention devoluted to renal calculosis and to the instruments that consent these therapeutic alternatives, the authors report the results obtained with a technique of analgesia and sedation. The drugs employed are two NSAIDs, ketoprophene and ketorolac tromethamine associated with propofol. The main advantages consist in the limited cardiovascular and respiratory depression, typical of the first minutes of administration of propofol and the rapid return of a complete functional autonomy in relative brief time intervals, with possibility of dismissing the patient after 4 hours from che end of treatment.
