Holmium

MultiPulse Ho

Multi-Pulse Ho is a surgical holmium laser dedicated to applications in endo-urology with a max power of 35 W. MultiPulse Ho is the go-to device for endo-surgical lithotripsy for the treatment of urinary tract stones (in ureteroscopy, ureterorenoscopy and for the percutaneous nephrolithotomy technique) and common bile duct stones.

Application

Treatment of urethral stricture, resulting from spongiofibrosis due to different causes such as inflammation or trauma, can now be quickly and effectively treated with holmium laser urethrotomy using MultiPulse Ho. This minimally invasive and safe procedure is suitable for short urethral strictures as well as for more significant strictures or for the treatment of urethral atresia. The laser ablates damaged tissue with a clean cut, free of bleeding and without penetrating too deeply. This reduces the risk of lateral thermal damage, complications, recurrences or the formation of post-surgery fibrosis, resulting in complete restoration of normal urinary flow.

The MultiPulse Ho system is also an excellent tool for ablation procedures, incision and coagulation of soft tissue, providing maximum operating control and minimal damage to adjacent areas. It offers a wide set of applications in surgery for tumors in the bladder, urethra, ureter and kidney.

Specifications

Its higher power of 35 W allows this system to manage large calculi with efficient and faster surgeries.

The action of the laser has a dual physical effect, photo-thermal and photo-mechanical. The pulsed emission, with a 2,100 nm wavelength that is highly absorbed by water, transmits energy in the form of shock waves that produce a cavitation effect in the liquid surrounding, causing pulverization or fragmentation of the stone, without invasive surgical procedures.
