Paper Abstract

In this work, we present a brief overview of sapphire medical instruments. Sapphire demonstrates a unique combination of physical properties, such as high hardness and chemical inertness, biocompatibility and high thermal conductivity, high transparency in a wide spectral range that makes it suitable for various medical applications. We demonstrate the examples of scalpel, capillary needle for laser therapy, neuroprobe and applicator for cryosurgery. Each of them combines different modalities in one instrument. Among them are tissue resection, therapy via electromagnetic wave delivering, aspiration, diagnosis, and tissue freezing. Sapphire instruments can be accompanied with magnetic resonance imaging and allow multiple sterilization.
