Abstract
In vitro experiments on tissue of tympanic membranes of pigs have been performed to determine the threshold for thermal effects like coagulation and perforation with 633 nm laser radiation. An optical setup with a CCD camera was used to monitor the spot size of the laser beam. Up to 38 samples have been investigated by semi thin slides and visualized by HE coloring. The lowest intensity at which a damage occurred was 2.5 kW/cm2. However even much higher intensities, for example 15 kW/cm2, did not damage the tympanic membrane. Only in four cases laser induced damage occurred showing coagulation, carbonization, and perforation.
