Lasers, Ho:YAG, Surgical

Definition : Solid-state lasers, powered by a rod of yttrium-aluminum-garnet (YAG) crystal doped with holmium (Ho), a rare-earth element, as the active medium, designed for use in surgical procedures. These lasers typically emit energy at a wavelength of 2,100 nm (mid-infrared); they may be operated in continuous-wave, pulsed, and Q-switched modes. The laser energy can be delivered through a flexible optical glass fiber, and the laser can be operated in an aqueous environment. Ho:YAG surgical lasers are used mainly to vaporize or ablate soft tissue with moderate hemostasis, little charring, and thin zone of necrosis; they are frequently used in laparoscopic and endoscopic procedures.

CardioGenesis Corp

Transmyocardial revascularization (TMR) is performed with a low powered Holmium:YAG laser that delivers precise laser energy directly to the target area(s) of the heart muscle. When performed as a sole therapy, it is done through a small incision between the ribs (thoracotomy) with the patient under general anesthesia. TMR can also be performed as a complement to bypass surgery in patients that have areas of ischemic heart disease that cannot be bypassed. The precise laser therapy is used to create small channels into the heart chamber which stimulate the heart muscle to create new blood vessels
