Aim of the work was an investigation of ureter wall perforation possibility by various types of mid-infrared radiations (from 2.01 μm (Tm:YAG) up to 2.94 μm (Er:YAG)) and exploration of the interaction basic characteristic for ureter surface (epithelium) and its deep structures (mesenchym). From results follow that CTH:YAG, En:YAG, and CTE:YAG laser radiations accomplish a good wall ureter perforation. A distinguished difference appeared in modifications of the ureter tissue - epithelium and mesenchym.
