Abstract
One of the most successful methods for the treatment of malignant and benign tumors is the thermal denaturation of tissue induced by absorbed light from a laser. Our LITT fiber products are emitting a spherical light profile along the entire length of up to 35 mm. A special spherical laser power meter was designed to measure the integral laser power. An exact coagulation zone can be obtained by varying laser power and application time. For faster treatment a beam splitter is built to apply up to four fibers with one laser unit. This allows the treatment of larger or metastatic tumors. In combination with a stable laser system a maximum of patients safety is obtained and the physical strain is reduced.
