Abstract
We report the first realization of interstitial surgery by ultrabright lamp light, on the kidneys and livers of live animals. A high-flux optic concentrates lamp emissions into an optical fiber for power delivery inside the body. The trials reveal surgical efficacy comparable to corresponding laser fiber optic treatments, as well as pronounced delayed tissue death.
