Abstract
Interest in lasers has increased exponentially due to the meteoric growth of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. This paper reviews the laser technologies available for laparoscopic use. The relative merits and liabilities for each wavelength and delivery system are discussed. Considerations for future developments of these technologies are provided.
