Pulmonary and Thoracic

Holmium Lasers for Pulmonary and Thoracic

In general, bronchoscopic laser therapy is an immediate-acting therapy used to relieve various malignant or benign pathologies of the tracheobronchial tree, such as central airway obstruction, stenosis, tracheobronchomalacia, esophageal carcinoma, granuloma, and more. Pulmonary laser application is performed with either a rigid or flexible bronchoscope according to the physician dissertation.

The holmium laser has a shallow depth of penetration to approximately 0.4 mm, this depth minimizes collateral damage to the surrounding tissues. The Holmium is also highly absorbed by hemoglobin, thus producing wounds with excellent hemostasis and control.

Neodymium yttrium-aluminium-garnet (Nd : YAG) laser resection is one of the mostly used interventional pulmonology techniques. The Nd:YAG laser is an excellent laser for use with bronchoscopy, which emits light at a wavelength of 1,064 nm and has balanced properties in ability to photo coagulate or vaporize tumor and cut stenotic lesions.

The Lumenis Solution

The Lumenis VersaPulse PowerSuite 80/100 system is a unique pulmonary and thoracic surgical laser combining two wavelengths in one system. It offers therapeutic and palliative treatment of benign and malignant lesions and obstructions in the airways

The Nd:YAG laser, with its deep tissue penetration and therefore high ablation rate, is combined with the delicacy of the shallow tissue penetration of the Ho:YAG laser for safe ablation in challenging anatomical locations. Switching between the wavelengths is as easy as changing the initiation on the foot pedal using the same delivery system, producing powerful ablation and delicate precision for central airway obstructions.

The SlimLine SIS Endo and the Xpeeda D/S/L side-firing fiber will assist in delivering the desired effect in a minimally invasive way to the hard-to-reach areas; extreme cutting precision, fast tissue ablation, and superior coagulation and homeostasis.

Advantages for Physicians
