THULIUM SURGICAL LASER SYSTEM 150W - 200W SPEED > POWER > VERSATILITY
VERSATILITY: The ability to vaporize, resect or ablate tissue as needed. These features in the treatmet of BPH, allow to choose the surgical technique (enucleation, resection or vaporization) best suited to the size and morphology of the treated prostate.
HIGH SAFETY LEVEL: By allowing the visualization of the treatment area and precise control of the laser delivery, along with a great hemostasis, Cyber TM provides a high level of safety. The high coefficient of absorption in water and the limited coagulation depth, reduce the chance of unexpected tissue damage.
CLEAR SURGICAL FIELD: The consistent power delivery of the Cyber TM?s continuous wave mode creates even and clean vaporization or cutting effect which keeps the surgical field clear of bubbles, blood or debris that can impair surgeon?s vision.
USER FRIENDLINESS: The Cyber TM laser is easy to use with a short learning curve. The double footswitch allows one to use two power output dedicated to the ablation/vaporization action and to the coagulation effect.
Using the Cyber TM for the BPH procedures, the surgeon can choose to perform:
ENUCLEATION (THuLEP) The enucleation technique involves the "detachment" of the prostatic obstructive lobes using the endoscopic instrument for the mechanical action, the laser beam to cut/ablate the resistant tissue components or for a quick hemostatic action.
VAPO-ENUCLEATION (THuVEP) The Vapo-Enucleation technique uses mainly the laser cutting/vaporization effect instead of the mechanical action. The use of this technique decreases the irritative phenomena and gives advantages in patients with coagulative problems. This technique has a shorter learning curve.
VAPO-RESECTION (THuVARP) This technique involves the reduction of blocking lobes into small pieces (removable endoscopically without the aid of a Morcellator) via laser resection.
VAPORIZATION (THuVAP) This procedure involves the reduction of prostate lobes by laser vaporization of destructive tissue. Thanks to the characteristics of laser vaporization, with Cyber TM you can use optical fibers with side firing or with frontal emission (reusable). Acting on the water component contained in the tissue, vaporization remains constant throughout the procedure, preserving the characteristics of low-depth coagulation (also using the 200W), a key factor for the reduction of dysuria and other postoperative problems.
Thanks to the special characteristics of wavelength interaction with the tissue Cyber TM provides a highly efficient cutting action with an effective coagulative effects.
For patients treated for BPH, deeper coagulation may be a key factor influencing increased dysuria rates and other post-procedural complications. Thulium laser has a very low value of coagulation depth (0.1-0.2 mm) providing great hemostatic effects and extremely limited thermal issues.
These features allow to have a laser procedure with shorter hospital stay, minimal post-operative catheterization time and quick return to a good quality of life.
ABLATION / VAPORIZATION OF TARGETED TISSUE LIMITING THE DAMAGE ON SURROUNDING AREAS
LOWERING THE RISKS INVOLVED IN HEMOSTATIC PROBLEMS
REDUCTION OF THE CATHETERIZATION TIME In most patients the catheter can be removed within 12 hours after surgery
REDUCTION OF HOSPITALIZATION TIME In many cases the patient discharge occurs within 24 hours after surgery
MINOR RISKS FOR PATIENTS WITH CLOTTING PROBLEMS Due to higher hemostatic characteristics, the Cyber TM laser system allows greater safety in the treatment of patients undergoing anticoagulation or antiplatelet drug therapy (without the suspension of drug therapy in some cases)
