Laser Engineering's Ultralase Hollow Waveguide comes in two (2) specialized sizes 500/300 micron with a 1.2 mm diameter silica based optical fiber delivery system transmits CO2 laser light and visable aiming beam for use in surgery. These cases are often referred to as bloodless surgery, it allows the surgeon to focus on a small area which reduces operative time, bleeding, post operative pain, less edema and reduced risk of infection.
The Ultralase CO2 Waveguide fiber is flexible and strong. The inner coating supports the CO2 laser light with a strong outer protective cladding and jacket. The fiber allows for the transmission of energy to over 80% while straight and 70% while bent.
Surgical laser fiber delivery systems are becoming the most effective, viable and versatile option for CO2 lasers in surgery. visibilty, accuracy and precision decreases the chance of burns and accidents.
Laser Engineering collaborated with Rutgers University to develope and manufacture a Non-Hene fiber guide as well as a Hene-Aiming beam for improved visibilty.
Laser Engineering has developed a full line of accessories to support fiber use. A new Dual shutter adapter for existing laser conversions on MD lasers as well as adapters for most other laser hand pieces and robotic director for surgical applications.
