Paper Abstract

Lasers play an increasing role in the ENT surgery. Our contribution to the improvement of CO2 laser surgical systems refers to the design of single mode laser tubes with high output power density per unit length, the active control and monitoring of laser power level and its stability during long periods, the precise control of the irradiation time when the exposure regimes are diversified and the safety measures against uncontrolled irradiation, as well as the design of new beam delivery systems and specialized interfaces between laser and the operating theater. We have applied the CO2 laser surgery in Otorhinolaryngology, performing 675 operations during the last seven years.
