Paper Abstract

The surgical properties of pulsed 0.53 m Nd:YAG laser have been investigated. The tissues of genitals have been treated with 0.53 mm laser beam and investigated microscopically, injury depth to width ratio was established. The spectrophotometry of the same tissues was performed and optical densities were compared. The advantages of 0.53 micrometers , 1.06 micrometers , 1.32 micrometers Nd:YAG lasers used for gynecological operations have been discussed.
