Prostate tumors or partial nephrectomy – biolitec® offers safe and effective applications to meet the requirements of modern laser surgery for both.
FLA with Prostate tumors
The combination of real-time prostate Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and thermometry with Focal Laser Ablation (FLA) has led to a new and higher quality of prostate tumor treatment. Now selected patients diagnosed with low to intermediate localized prostate tumors can be treated safely and very precisely without collateral damage to sensitive structures.
After confirmed diagnosis with PSA blood tests, MRI scans and a prostate biopsy, the Litt, Litt2B or 3B fiber of the biolitec® is gently under MRI and thermometry guidance introduced and positioned into the core of the tumor. When the LEONARDO® DUAL 45 laser is activated, the Litt2B or 3B fiber tip destroys the tumor with a round- or olive-shaped ablation zone, within minutes.
The properties of our high-tech optical fibers contribute to a successful nephron sparing surgery securing better overall renal function and make them the fibers of choice to ensure best results. Cutting and coagulating at the same time provides minimal bleeding with a good view on the tissue. Our special diode lasers for partial nephrectomy offer the benefit of no or shorter warm ischemia time with more effective tissue coagulation, hemostasis and reduced parenchymal damage.
