Paper Abstract

The results of investigation of interaction of combined of Ho- and Nd- laser radiation with soft tissue in contact and noncontact modes of processing under fiber-optical delivery system application are represented. Laser wound is evaluated according to criteria of efficiency (energy of laser radiation spent to removal of unit volume of tissue) and invasion (ratio of irreversibly necrotized tissue volume to removed tissue volume). The dependencies of destruction efficiency index and laser wound invasion on energetically parameters of laser radiation and destruction rate are represented. The considerable difference of destruction efficiencies of contact and noncontact modes is shown. The requirements to optimum parameters of combined Ho- and Nd- laser radiation for surgery are formulated.
