Utilizing Holmium Laser for FURS Renal Stone Lithotripsy Comparing Stone Breaking vs. Stone Dusting Settings

2016-02-17 22:08:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Twenty (20) subjects presenting with a renal stone and candidates for FURS (flexible ureteroscopic renal surgery) will undergo a single FURS procedure for a kidney stone as part of the study, using the study device. These subjects will be randomized into stone breaking treatment or stone dusting.

Recent advances in infrared laser lithotripsy Invited.

The flashlamp-pumped, solid-state, pulsed, mid-infrared, holmium:YAG laser (λ = 2120 nm) has been the clinical gold standard laser for lithotripsy for over the past two decades. However, while the ho...

Dissipative soliton resonance and its depression into burst-like emission in a holmium-doped fiber laser with large normal dispersion.

We report on dissipative soliton resonance (DSR) and its transformation into a type of burst-like emission in a holmium-doped fiber (HDF) laser in the large normal dispersion regime. A nonlinear ampli...

Dusting Efficiency of the Moses Holmium Laser: an Automated in vitro Assessment.

Moses technology is a novel Holmium:YAG laser system designed to minimize stone retropulsion and improve stone ablation when the laser is not in direct contact with the stone. Our aim was to assess th...

915  nm all-fiber laser based on novel Nd-doped high alumina and yttria glass @ silica glass hybrid fiber for the pure blue fiber laser.

The fiber laser in the range of 900-1000 nm is essential to generate the blue fiber laser through frequency doubling for the laser display, laser underwater communications, and laser lighting. Yet, t...

Single-frequency self-sweeping Nd-doped fiber laser.

We experimentally demonstrate for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, a Nd-doped fiber laser with wavelength self-sweeping. The main feature of the laser is the generation of periodic micros...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.

A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).

Holmium. An element of the rare earth family of metals. It has the atomic symbol Ho, atomic number 67, and atomic weight 164.93.

A game in which a round inflated ball is advanced by kicking or propelling with any part of the body except the hands or arms. The object of the game is to place the ball in opposite goals.

A TEXTILE fiber obtained from the pappus (outside the SEEDS) of cotton plant (GOSSYPIUM). Inhalation of cotton fiber dust over a prolonged period can result in BYSSINOSIS.
