Every surgical procedure represents stress for the patient. For this reason, laser uses a minimally invasive surgical approach – because less invasive procedures usually mean shorter recovery times. The patient is able to return to normal life more quickly. At the same time, there are no compromises: The expected success of the procedure is greater than that of open surgery. Proctology conditions such as haemorrhoids, fistula-in-ano, fissure, pilonidal sinus are very prevalent all over the world. Although not life threatening, these conditions are associated with a very poor quality of life and embarrassment. Minimally invasive laser technology provides a simple, safe and highly effective solution for the treatment of anorectal disorders. This new approach is offering, short, minimally invasive procedure with virtually no patient downtime. It eliminates the symptoms of the pathology, while minimizing recurrences, postoperative pain, complications and adverse events such as, damage to the anal sphincter and even stenosis.
Laser therapies are most advanced medical treatments that use high intensity focused light or radiation tuned to specific wavelengths. It allow surgeons to work at high levels of precision by focusing on a small area, damaging less of the surrounding tissue. During laser therapy, defined energy will be led into the affected area with help of an innovative laser probe. By this, the infected tissue will be destroyed in a most sparing way and has not to be tediously extracted during a complex surgery by a surgeon.
The energy causes shrinkage of the tissue around the laser fibre with the aim being to eliminate. It is used to terminate the hemorrhoid blood supply and close the fistula’s tract, seal the fistula openings, repair the fissure, remove the sinus, effectively stopping tissue viability. Thus, any parts of the muscle are preserved to a maximum and incontinence is avoided. The laser treatment takes only a few minutes and can be carried out in a day surgery setup. Long term cure is achievable in 97% of patients. No other treatment for haemorrhoids comes close to this result.
The LEONARDO laser is the most versatile and universal advanced medical laser in the market at the moment. This highly compact diode laser features with two separate wavelengths: a 1490nm laser wavelength which specifically targets water in hemorrhoidal and fistula tissue as well as a 980nm laser wavelength targeting oxyhemoglobin in the hemorrhoidal supplying arteries. This allows for optimal ablation and coagulation of the specific treatment area using a low power energy intensity for safe treatment with minimal risk of burns. The ability to choose the appropriate wavelength for the application provide surgeons the best solution and flexibility. This instrument has a power cut, coagulation, electrical pliers, and tweezers four treatment status.
Diode Laser provide surgeons with a complete solution for procedure support. From dedicated laser, variety of fibers shape to customized treatment hand piece tools. Seeting option to treat a wide range of clinical applications to maximize results.
