Abstract
28 cases of brain tumors were operated by SLT contact Nd:YAG laser from October 1995 to May 1997 in our hospital. Among these, 14 are menin-giomas, 5 are astrocytomas. Others are tumors such as acoustic neuromas, craniopharyngiomas, etc 21 cases underwent common craniotomy, 3, laser endoscopy operation; and 4, laser therapy under microscopy. Method of tumor resection: firstly, cutting and separating the tumor from brain tissues with GRP by 5-15w; secondly, vaporizing parenchyma of tumor with MTRL and sucking it, again, cutting and separating and so on, lastly removing the tumor entirely. The power of vaporization for glioma or tumors in ventricles is about 20-30w, but for meningiomas, 30-60w. MT was used on power of 15-20w to coagulate and homeostate the left cavity of tumor. According to our experience, laser operation can make bleeding reduced markedly, tumor resection become more thorough, and postoperative response and complications decrease obviously.
