The precision of soft tissue dissection with pulsed lasers in endo-microsurgery is typically limited by collateral damage from vapor bubbles created during energy deposition. Expansion and collapse of the cavitation bubble introduces collateral damage extending far beyond the primary energy deposition zone in both, axial and radial directions. We present an alternative technique that allows for creating of only axial pulsed liquid flow with well-defined radial dimensions and axial velocity.
