Paper Abstract

Patients feel face destruction as the main problem of oncological treatment in maxillofacial area. Finding a compromise between radicality and esthetic point of view is always problematic. Original Czech 1064/1319 nm Nd:YAG laser--U.S. patient pending--is new precise tool which can give new possibilities. Two wavelengths--with different water absorption--give unique chance to control collateral tissue damage. We can combine vaporization, coagulation and hyperthermic therapy special for every part of face and for every tissue. Thanks to that we use this machine in primary treatment and in palliative therapy independently or in combination with classical knife excision. Thanks to the use of fiber we are able to bit not only superficial lesions but we have opportunity of deep hyperthermic therapy with different collateral penetration. After 20 months we can show interesting results.
