Abstract
We have been studying endoscopic Nd-YAG laser therapies since 1979. In consequence, advantages of the contact method by using ceramic endoprobes were revealed123. Various endoprobes were developed by our studies, and the experimental studies and clinical applications of ceramic frosted probe and chisel probe with Nd-YAG laser were studied. Frosted probe was able to thrombose in the artery of the canine gastric submucosal layer by Nd-YAG laser irra-diation, and was applied to endoscopic hemostasis. Chisel probe was able to cut canine gastric mucosa at the power of 20watts and duration of 2.Osec. with Nd-YAG laser, and was applied to endoscopic pyloroplasty and cutting complete biopsy of submucosal tumor.
