Soft tissue cutting efficiency by 980 nm laser with carbon‐, erbium‐, and titanium‐doped optothermal fiber converters

Alexei V. Skrypnik, Andrey V. Belikov

Abstract

Objectives

The use of near‐IR diode lasers for contact soft tissue surgery is attended by a risk of severe thermal damage of surrounding tissues due to the low cutting efficiency of these lasers. To increase the cutting efficiency of a near‐IR lasers in contact surgery special tips (converters) which transform laser light to heat are used. The present in vivo study evaluated temperature dynamics and soft tissue cutting efficiency of 980 nm diode laser equipped with standard carbon‐ and novel erbium‐ and titanium‐doped converters.
