The AcuPulse 40WG CO2 extends ENT practitioners’ range of surgical procedures. It assures highest control of beam delivery through the flexible fiber for smart tissue management. Three laser operation modes and three timed-exposure modes give ENT physicians the freedom to customize beam delivery.

Controlled, reproducible results reduce operating time and ensure patient safety,” says Eran Kurman, Director of ENT Global Marketing, Surgical Strategic Business Unit. “The Digital AcuBlade is indispensable for providing optimal oncological as well as superior functional results after TLM for the treatment of larynx cancer,” says Floyd Chris Holsinger, M.D., Associate Professor, Department of Surgery, Division of Surgery, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX “In the coming year, Lumenis will be revolutionizing the way the CO2 laser is utilized in the ENT space,” said Tzipi Ozer-Armon, CEO of Lumenis. “The company has made this a priority and we look forward to further contributing to the practice of ENT and Head and Neck Surgery.”
