Paper Abstract

This paper presents in vitro investigations to compare three different wavelengths used to LITT on the basis of coagulation efficiency, maximum temperature and maximum coagulation volume. The results led us to the conclusion that wavelengths with a smaller penetration depth show a higher coagulation efficiency but a smaller maximum coagulation volume.
