Paper Abstract

Advanced laser operational techniques have been introduced using the Nd:YAG or the argon laser in combination with fiber techniques and contact probes . In gynaecology, for exantple, surgeons need highly flexible fiber transmission systems for laparoscopic operations 2 Indications such as adhesiolysis or endornetriosis can be treated without mechanical traumatisation and bleeding using the laser light. Laser systems with different wavelengths, fibers and tips have become a very flexible surgical instrument. Feedback control of the reaction of the laser light with tissue makes the inedical laser system save and reliable.
