Paper Abstract

Objective: To observe the effect of Ho:YAG laser in treatment of urethra cauncle. Methods: The patients suffering from urethra cauncle were treated by Ho:YAG laser, the energy of per pulse is 0.5J. The frequency of pulse is 5~15Hz, and the average power of the laser is 2.5~7.5W. Results: Among the patients 188 cases of urethra cauncle were only cured for one time, twice for 12 cases. No stricture on the peristome of urethra or urethrovaginal fistula was observed. Conclusions: The technique of treatment of urethra cauncle with Ho:YAG laser is an effect and safe therapeutics with the merit of excellent homeostasis, improved visualization, minimal thermal damage to surrounding tissue, shorter period of recovery and easy to operate. It is better than CO2 laser and Nd:YAG laser.
