It opens with an introduction to the basic physics of lasers and then focuses on the current use of lasers in urological practice, and concludes by reflecting on their potential for the future. Edited, and with several contributions by Tom McNicholas, the book also contains contributions from a number of workers at the National Medical Laser Brand: Springer London. Book Description: The introduction of lasers into operative medicine and advances in fiberoptic technology have made a significant contribution to minimally invasive surgery. This book was written to raise awareness of the capabilities and advant ages of lasers in urological surgery and to make this tech nology more widely accessible. Lasers were first used in urology practice in the s. A significant breakthrough came in the s with the invention of the pulse Ho:YAG laser, which can be used for resection and enucleation of prostatic tissue, precise stricture incision throughout the whole urinary tract, urothelial bladder tumour resection and ablation, and contact lithotripsy of urinary : S. K. Sharma, A. K. Hemal. The first laser used in the field of urology was ruby laser. Since, then various lasers have been used for variety of urological conditions, i.e., prostate, stone disease, strictures, bladder hemangioma and transitional cell carcinoma of lower and upper urinary tract. Photodynamic therapy tissue welding are other uses of laser therapy.

Nov pii: S(19) doi: /y Lasers were first used in urology practice in the s. A significant breakthrough came in the s with the invention of the pulse Ho:YAG laser, which can be used for resection and enucleation of prostatic tissue, precise stricture incision throughout the whole urinary tract, urothelial bladder tumour resection and ablation, and contact. Holmium lasers and associated fibers effectively fragment stones of any composition or size throughout the urinary tract. Holmium lasers are used in urology procedures such as percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) and ureteroscopy. Get Book. Book Description: Developments in lasers continue to enable progress in many areas such as eye surgery, the recording industry and dozens of others. This book presents citations from the book literature for the last 25 years and groups them for ease of access which is also provided by subject, author and titles indexes.
This book covers the field of laser urology as currently practiced, particularly with regard to bladder cancer, ureteric and urethral tumours and the endoscopic laser destruction of stones. The book is written largely by European urologists with direct practical experience who have been instrumental in developing laser applications in urology. The Book. Comments. Copyright © Mohamed Tarif, Ph.D., E.B.U. Lasers in Urology. The extensive usage of small diameter endoscopic instruments and the recent improvements in fiber-optics and lasers has proved to be a perfect amalgamation in the field of urology. It has opened up new avenues for diagnosing various ailments afflicting the excretory system and exciting probabilities for treating them with. This book presents an overview of laser physics and biophysics, safety prescriptions, and the clinical application of lasers in urology. Exact instructions are provided for applying lasers in the various areas of minimally invasive urologic surgery.
