Abstract
The optical beam profile, power transmission efficiency, and tissue effects on the Idaho potato model of 1.064-micrometer Nd:YAG radiation were determined using a fiber with the 3M High-Power Side-Firing Tip. The results suggest that a single mechanically and thermally robust beam-focusing tip may be used for both ablation and coagulation in the treatment of benign prostate hypertrophy.
