How Multi-Wavelength Lasers work?
Holmium lasers operate at a wavelength of 2.1 microns, which is highly absorbed by water and have a shallow tissue penetration depth. Holmium lasers are highly suitable for operation in a fluid environment and have precise incision and vaporization characteristics. In addition, the thermal effect, created by the Holmium laser energy that is absorbed by the water contained in urinary stones, as well as the stone composites, can be used to break stones of any size or composition, making holmium lasers the standard –of-care for laser lithotripsy.
Nd:YAG lasers, with a wavelength of 1.06 microns, has a deeper tissue penetration, making it suitable for coagulation procedures with hemostasis capabilities. Combining the Holmium wavelength with the Nd:YAG enables a versatility in treatment options.
