Laser Technology In Action
Enucleation or T-LEP
Using end-firing fiber to dissect the prostatic lobes into small pieces to be evacuated through the resectoscope sheath.
ProTouch 1470nm laser with special laser pulse mechanism to provide rapid hemostasis during surgery without undesirably collateral zone of thermal damage and tissue necrosis.
1470nm ProTouch laser has optical penetration depths of approximately 0.3 to 0.6 mm produced the strongest blood vessel seals. ProTouch laser has demonstrated the capability of sealing a wide range of blood vessels without charring.
The side-firing fiber is rotated about its axis to deliver laser power laterally to remove tissues.
Modified Enucleation with Laser Ablation
Surgeons can first enucleate the median-lobe with an end-firing fiber to open up more space, then use a side-firing fiber to ablate the left and right lateral lobes. The T-1470 ProTouch can help surgeons transition from ablation technique to enucleation technique.
T-1470nm ProTouch laser is a critical tool for the Open Partial Nephrectomy surgery. It provides an effective resection and excellent hemostasis with only 30-watt laser power and 800um end-firing fiber optic delivery system.
