Efficacy and safety of the 2micron continuous wave laser in neuro-endoscopic procedures

Christoph Nagel, Florian Heinrich Ebner, Marcos Soares Tatagiba & Martin Ulrich Schuhmann
Objective: The 2micron continuous wave laser combines the high tissue effectiveness of the CO2 laser (but can be applied through a fiber as contact laser, with a maximal effective distance of 1–2 mm under water) with the hemostatic capacity of the Nd:YAG laser, however with a maximal tissue penetration[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
