Paper Abstract

In 1983, we initiated experimental and clinical studies of endoscopic Nd:YAG laser treatment with SLT contact probes for endoscopy comparing with the non-contact quartz fiber, in order to evaluate the histological effects and safety to each method. The first computer-controlled endoscopic loval hyperthermia (Laserthermia) system was developed and reported at the 6th Meeting of the Japanease SOciety for Laser Medicine in Sep. 1985. We named interstitial local hyperthermia with Nd:YAG laser, "Laserthermia". Recent 3 years, technical and histological studies for treatment of the gastric cancer were carried out and reported in the SPIE's symposium. In this paper, newly developed the single channel method, and histological studies by Laserthermia to the human gastric cancer transplanted to the nude mice were discussed.
