After the introduction of the Laser into clinical medicine in recent years, the Laser has become increasingly useful clinically, and has even proved, as a new surgical modality that utilizes high-intensity beams of radiant energy to vaporize or coagulate tissue, superior to coventional surgical techniques in selected procedures. Using the carbon dioxide Laser beam, the authors had experienced good results in 8 cases of brain tumor with its unique properties of tissue vaporization and nonmechanical bloodless excision.
