Paper Abstract

The contact Nd:YAG laser system with ceramics tip was applied to head and neck reconstructive surgery. Plastic surgery was performed in 78 patients with head and neck diseases during the past 11 years. Since 1984 reconstructive surgery in these patients was made on 60 cases and on 45 cases(75%) of these cases the contact Nd:YAG laser surgery was used. Using this laser technique, half volume of bleeding in the operation was obtained as compared with that of the conventional procedure.
