The study showed the treatment of frenulum breve in 24 patients. Nine of them were treated with CO2 and eight ones with Nd:YAG lasers. In seven males the classical surgical procedures were done. All patients were treated in Department of Reproduction, Institute of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Karol Marcinkowski School of Medical Sciences, Poznan, Poland between March 1995 and September 1996. All procedures were collected successful and no serious complications were observed. The all males are still under control in our department. The use of lasersurgery is the safe and efficient method in treatment of frenulum breve. Lasersurgery may be conducting as the out-patient procedure or one-day surgery because of possibility of NLA and local anesthesia. The use of CO2 seems to be the better method than Nd:YAG laser with fibertom system in treatment of frenulum breve because of shorter time of healing. There are no differences between hemostasis achieved by CO2 and Nd:YAG lasers. The incision effect is the same, when CO2 and Nd:YAG laser with fibertom system are used.
