Paper Abstract

The Nd:YAG laser has become a coagulation instrument, which has found acceptance in interdisciplinary surgery. Due to the low absorption and high scattering in tissue, the radiation of the Nd:YAG laser leads to a deep and homogeneous coagulation effect. The contactless treatment and the fact that blood and lymph vessels are coagulated and sealed have led to successful applications especially with regard to tumor surgery.
