Comparison of cortical bone ablations by using infrared laser wavelengths 2.9 to 9.2 microm.


BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare the ablation of cortical bone at wavelengths across the near and midinfrared region. STUDY DESIGN/MATERIALS AND METHODS An free electron laser generating 4-micros macropulses at specific wavelengths between 2.9 and 9.2 microm was used to ablate cortical bone. The same pulse intensity… (More)
