Paper Abstract

Long pulse excimer laser radiation can be efficiently coupled and transmitted through optical fibers allowing the achievement of both photoablative and photomechanical effects. In this work the investigation has been focussed on the urologic surgery field to demonstrate the effectiveness of an excimer laser system for very different therapeutic tasks: recanalization of urethral stenosis and lithotripsy. The choice of the suitable radiation dosimetry and the technical solutions employed provide to the surgeon a multipurpose laser system with a wide range of utility in comparison with other laser systems.
