Benign prostate obstruction (BPO) can be treated with a range of laser treatments using different laser systems and applications. Transurethral laser treatment is considered to be an alter...
Today, endoscopic enucleation of the prostate (EEP) has been recognized a method of choice for treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) of any size, including large-sized glands (>8...
The aim of our study is to estimate the efficacy, safety and postoperative complications of the thulium fiber laser enucleation of the prostate (ThuFLEP) with Urolase system (NTO IRE-POLUS...
In this study the investigators aim to test Thulium Laser 200 W Enucleation of the Prostate (ThuLEP) vs Greenlight (532-nm) laser Photoselective Enucleation of the Prostate (Green LEP) usi...
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 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...
To compare the safety and efficacy of thulium laser enucleation of the prostate (ThuLEP) versus thulium laser resection of the prostate (TmLRP) in small prostates (≤ 30 g) and to test the validit...
To compare in daily practice efficacy and safety of standard 180-Watt GreenLight laser photo-selective vaporization (PVP) and Thulium laser Vaporesection of the prostate (ThuVEP).
To highlight the unique contribution of the holmium laser to the endoscopic enucleation of the prostate.
To clarify the key steps and evaluate the early results of the recently introduced Top-Down Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HoLEP). This technique was developed to shorten the steep learnin...
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).
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.
Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
Fragmentation of CALCULI, notably urinary or biliary, by LASER.
Techniques using a laser to cut away and harvest a specific cell or cluster of cells from a tissue section while viewing it under the microscope.
