Paper Abstract

This study was done to determine delivery parameters for holmium:YAG laser ablation of alimentary tract mucosa. Cadaveric and in vivo canine stomach studies determined laser energies that could ablate mucosa without irreversibly damaging underlying tissues. In vivo gastric, duodenal and colonic studies were performed to document mucosal ablation efficiency.
