Paper Abstract

Laser septochondrocorrection (LSC) is a non-invasive, bloodless, painless procedure which takes only 10 minutes to complete and can be performed in outpatient settings. The efficacy and safety of this technology can be guarantied with the feed-back control system monitoring tissue characteristics in the course of laser treatment. Laser medical equipment for septochondrocorrection includes an Erbium doped glass fiber laser, special instrument, opto thermo mechanical contactor, and feed back control system measuring temperature on the nasal septum surface and switching the laser off when preset value of temperature is achieved. To the date LSC procedure has been applied for 380 patients, aging from 12 until 68 years. The new laser equipment LRC-701 manufactured by Arcuo Medical Inc. was tested for 106 patients in Moscow and for 64 patients in Crete. The positive results habe been obtained for 95 percent of the patients with two years follow-up. No age limitation, no complications and negative secondary effects were observed.
