Paper Abstract

In order to establish a practical way of evaluating the efficiency of an arthroscopic laser system, specifically the new 1.44 micron Neodymium:YAG laser system, a simple experiment was carried out at the Carl Zeiss Laboratory in Princeton, New Jersey. A new parameter, laser efficiency as it applies to tissue ablation is introduced, LETA or ablation efficiency.
