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.

The primary objective of this study is to compare the time to acceptable stone fragmentation during clinical use of the holmium laser when using energy settings 0.2J vs 0.8J. The hypothesi...
The purpose of this research study is to is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the FDA approved Holmium:YAG laser for reducing lower eyelid bags.
The purpose of this study is to study the outcome of patients after ureteroscopy in which all fragments remaining after holmium laser lithotripsy were retrieved compared to those where sma...
In this study, Investigators planned to compare Holmium Laser ejaculatory sparing and non-ejaculatory sparing (conventional) TUIP using both subjective and objective assessment tools for t...
To determine if the prior prolonged use of medication, as a treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia, reduces the efficacy of Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) for patien...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
