Paper Abstract

Practical use of laser tecnique surgery demonstrated the true choice of lasers generating in the long wavelength spectrum. In this field the pigment content of biologic tissues is not noted at absorption spectrum. The latter is generally defined by the percentage of water in tissues. Among the known laser types the most proved and developed are the lasers generating at 1060 nm, 2090 nra, 2900 nii and 10600 nm. Ho-lasers of 2090 nm radia tion wavelength are perspective instruments for surgery purposes due to the high radiation absorption at biologic tissues: 30 cru This value is much higher than the absoptance at 1060 mit and a little bit lower at 1060 nm. An important feature that distinguishes Ho-laser among other types is the possibility of its use with fiber channel made of fused silica for abdominal operations.
