Paper Abstract

We reported 25 cases of cerebellopontine angle (CPA) tumor operation with Ho:YAG laser assistance during the operative procedure. We analysed the surgical effects of Ho:YAG laser, compare it with CO2, Nd:YAG, argon laser, and illustrated its features and parameters. We think that Ho:YAG laser can be used to ablate and vaporize the tumor efficiently in the operation of the CPA tumors whose vascular supply is abundant and the texture is very tough. It can be used to reduce the bleeding and cooperate to incise tumor in the operation and improve the curable effect of the surgery.
