The Use of Nd-YAG Laser in Neurosurgery.
Kil Soo Choi, Hyun Jip Kim
Department of Neurosurgery, College of Medicine, Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea.
The authors report our experiences with the use of Nd-YAG laser in extripation of selected intracranial tumors:5 Meningiomas, 1 Acoustic neurinoma, 1 Hemangioendothelioma and 1 Oligodendroglioma. The Nd-YAG laser is very helpful to coagulate the pathologic vessels. And because of it's excellent coagulation the Nd-YAG laser is particularly useful when applied in highly vascular tumor as well as in high contents of mesenchymal structures within the tumors.
Key Words: Nd-YAG laser; Highly vascular tumor; Coagulation
