Smart CO2Laser Solutions for Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery
The CO2 laser wavelength is the optimal energy for gynecological (GYN) surgery with highly predictable tissue effects1 and low thermal impact to non-target tissue. Lumenis’ gynecological solutions extend the use of the AcuPulse™ DUO and AcuPulse™ 40WG CO2laser systems, allowing you to deliver therapeutic CO2laser energy with unparalleled precision to a wide variety of GYN applications. Clinical Applications of CO2Energy in Gynecological Surgery: Endometriosis: 2,3,4,5 CO2laser laparoscopic endometriosis surgery has been shown to be associated with:
Limited thermal damage
Low perioperative morbidity (e.g. blood loss, bladder and bowel injury)
Significant improvements in quality of life
High fertility rates
Low recurrent disease rates
Precise, yet hemostatic lysis of adhesions
Minimal thermal damage allows avoidance of injury to neighboring structures
Precision allows removal of pathological tissue, while operating in well-defined surgical planes
Faster tissue healing is reflected by low rates of adhesion formation
Benefits of CO2Laser in Minimally Invasive Gynecology:
During surgery, the unique, high-precision characteristics of the CO2laser translate to:
Depth of cutting and tissue ablation is controllable and predictable
Superficial effect with bare minimum of thermal damage
Reduced risk of complications, such as strictures and adhesions
Low thermal impact (compared with electrocautery) for minimal tissue disturbance
Excellent tissue visualization of surgical plane for precision ablation, excision, and incisions
Smart CO2Solutions for Laparoscopic Gynecological Surgery
When it comes to delicate laparoscopic surgeries, optimal thermal control and precision are required for smart tissue management. With unique pulsed and continuous power mode settings, you have optimal control over cutting, ablation, or adequate hemostasis with the least amount of disturbance to adjacent tissue. A clearly visible aiming beam helps you target only the tissue of interest.
Lumenis provides the opportunity to choose either fiber or freebeam delivery of precision CO2laser energy depending on your preference.
For freebeam delivery, the SurgiTouch™ scanner and operating system has become an industry benchmark for precision in CO2laser surgery, assuring reproducible tissue-effects that can be perfectly tailored to patient anatomy. Beam alignment units connect to commonly available operating laparoscopes.
For fiber delivery, advanced CO2fiber technology used either in robotic surgery or with specially designed GYN Laparoscopic handpieces, feature consistent, high energy transmission and a fiber tip that can be renewed during a procedure. This helps assure predicable results, fast procedure times, and cost effective procedures.
Two handpieces – GYN LAP R and GYN LAP S, are designed to facilitate surgeon technique preference, through a trocar cannula or the suction irrigator, for optimal maneuverability and access to the most difficult to reach disease.
