Experimental optimization of blood vessel laser coagulation for neurosurgical applications

P. Reinacher, H. Wiederhold, J.M. Gilsbach & A. Lenenbach
Objective: To investigate different parameters of laser coagulation for microsurgical and endoscopic neurosurgical operations. Methods: Different laser systems were studied: A neodym-doped yttrium aluminium garnet (Nd:YAG) with max.28 Watt (W) at 1064nm, two different ytterbium YAG fiber laser systems[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
