Paper Abstract

Plastic hollow fibers for the transmission of CO2 laser energy in curved path were produced by plating the inner face of plastic tubes with a metal film and a dielectric film. These fibers could transmit high power (25 watts) with low losses even through bendings. Bleeding ulcers in dogs' stomachs were successfully treated with the fibers which were inserted into the stomach through the oesophagus.
