Laser for ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat)
In recent years, lasers have increasingly found their way into ear, nose, and throat surgery and it is hard to imagine it without them. 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 the ear/nose/throat.
Diode Laser offers the most bloodless surgery available today. This laser is especially suited for ENT works and finds application in various aspects of surgery in the ear, nose, larynx, neck, etc. With the introduction of the Diode Laser, there has been a significant improvement in the quality of ENT surgery.
Middle ear surgery, among other things, involves operating on the smallest bones in the human body. Dangers of conservative methods may sometimes be an acoustic or mechanical trauma. Structures that are difficult to reach such as the anterior stapes leg are easily reachable with the laser and the appropriate otology probe. Contactless application of laser radiation eliminates the risk of mechanical trauma considerably.
- Accessory auricle
- Tumors of the inner ear
The inner area of the nose lined with a well-perfused mucous membrane is particularly suitable for various laser interventions. Examples of use are reducing the turbinates, excision of polyps, or epistaxis treatment. For many years the wavelength 980nm as offered with our Qolight laser has been successfully utilized for this purpose.
- Nasal polyp, rhinitis
- Turbinate reduction
- Cysts & Mucoceles
- Stenosis & Synechia
- Sinus surgery
In laryngology doctors face new challenges every day. A laser allows minimally invasive interventions that can be executed not only extremely precise, but by using state-of-the-art fiber technology also make areas accessible that cannot be reached with conservative instruments. Low bleeding during surgery with maximum flexibility, protecting surrounding tissues and enormous precision allows optimal results for patients.
- Vocal cord polyps
- Minimal invasive
- Minimal bleeding and atraumatic
- Good wound healing with uncomplicated follow-up care
- Hardly any side effects
- Possibility to operate people with a cardiac pacemaker
- Treatments under local anesthesia possible (esp. rhinology and vocal chords treatments)
- Treatment of areas that are difficult to reach
- Reduction of medicine
- More sterile
