Tissue ablation with the interstitial Nd:YAG contact laser is a rapidly evolving technique. The urologic applications of interstitial lasers have not been fully investigated. We developed a model to test the feasibility of using interstitial laser energy, administered under laparoscopic guidance, to ablate porcine renal tissue. Utilizing a synthetic sapphire interstitial Nd:YAG contact probe, minimal tissue effects were observed using total energies between 120 and 240 J. At energies of 480 J… CONTINUE READING
