Laser are now generally considered to be the most advanced technical tool in every specialty of surgery. However, all lasers are different in nature, and the introduction of Diode Laser has led to significant advances in surgery in the area of ear, nose and throat.The 980nm special wavelength in the Potent Diode Laser series provides the best non-contact hemostasis, preventing intraoperative bleeding even in hemorrhagic structures such as nasal polyps and hemangiomas.The tissue cutting effect is comparable to that of CO2 laser, and the solidification effect is similar to that of argon laser. The solidification degree is slightly higher than that of argon laser, which is easier to be absorbed by tissue than Nd: YAG laser.The Potent laser system allows effective and precise excision, sectioning, and vaporization of proliferative and neoplastic tissues with few side effects.
The use of lasers in ENT surgery is common practice today. Thanks to the evolution of laser sources, the surgical otolaryngology approach has been revolutionized by the ability to perform minimally invasive, highly precise surgery, suitable for a wide range of treatments for diseases of ear/nose/throat.
Endoscopic sinus surgery with Diode Laser is as effective as nonlaser techniques in relieving the symptoms of chronic sinusitis. Laser surgery offers improved intraoperative hemostasis, but it causes increased postoperative tissue edema.
