Paper Abstract

A new laserthermia system using Nd:YAG laser with a hybrid laserthermia probe was developed to overcome a certaine disadvantage of conventional laserthermia system with a frosted tipped cantact probe. Experimental and clinical studies ravealed that laserthermia system using a hybrid laserthermia probe was effective, easy, and safe to treat deep seated brain tumors.
