Paper Abstract

Since 19843 we have been studying endoscopic laser induced hyperthermia (laserthermia) with SLT frosted contact probe and low power Nd-YAG laser irradiation under 5 watts" The endoscopic laserthermia have been reported endoscopically such as tumor reduction3. In this paper, we would like to discuss the comparative histological studies between the first prototype laserthermia system. with Medilas(M..B.B.) Nd-YAG laser and the new laser-thermia system with SLT Contact Laser on canine stomach, and report clinical application of endoscopic laserthermia to the gastric cancers. The computer controlled laserthermia will be possible to apply for the treatment of the malignant tumor in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
