HeLP®, LHP®, FiLaC® and SiLaC® – our laser solutions in coloproctology
Modern laser therapy has a lot to offer for the minimally invasive treatment of delicate areas. In the field of coloproctology, biolitec® focuses on the gentle laser treatment of hemorrhoids and fistulas.
HeLP® (Hemorrhoid Laser Procedure) – for hemorrhoids
A painless outpatient technique for treating 2nd degree hemorrhoids with a slight prolapse using our exclusive HeLP® equipment and technology: The HeLP® Proctoscope is designed for easy passage into the anal canal and provided with a channel to guide the disposable HeLP® Doppler probe, which allows for identifying the branches of the superior hemorrhoidal arteries above the dentate line.
This technique is safe and causes minimal pain or discomfort to the patient. Post operative recovery is faster than alternative approaches, with only few complications. Anesthesia or analgesia are generally no longer required what greatly reduces complications, whilst simplifying the procedure and making the treatment safer, faster and completely outpatient with minimal or no pain postoperatively for the patient, showing excellent immediate and long term results.
LHP® (LaserHemorrhoidoPlasty) – for hemorrhoids
LHP® is used as a gentle therapy for advanced hemorrhoids under appropriate anesthesia and allows interstitial laser coagulation of both segmental and circular hemorrhoidal nodes. As the energy of the laser is inserted centrally into the hemorrhoidal node, the hemorrhoid can be treated according to its size without causing any damage to the anoderm or mucosa. No foreign materials (clamps) are needed, and LHP® is not associated with any risk of stenosis. Healing is excellent because, unlike conventional surgeries, there are no incisions or sutures.
FiLaC® (Fistula-tract Laser Closure) – for anal fistulas
FiLaC® treats the fistula tract as gently as possible. The flexible, radially emitting FiLaC® fiber is precisely placed using a pilot beam and delivers the energy into the course of the fistula tract. The efficient radiation concept of the FiLaC® fiber makes optimal use of the applied energy.
With minimally invasive laser therapy, the sphincter muscle is not damaged during the treatment of anal fistulas: all areas of the muscle are preserved to a maximum and incontinence is avoided.
SiLaC® (Sinus Pilonidalis treatment) – for sinus pilonidalis
The newest field of application for FiLaC® is the treatment of sinus pilonidalis, or pilonidal cysts during the so called SiLaC® treatment. Here, the laser therapie achieves excellent healing, minimal wound surfaces, and convincing cosmetic results.
Other possible proctological applications of the biolitec® laser and fibers are:
- Skin tags
- Removal of polyps
