Diode lasers were commonly used in the field of therapeutic treatment for pain relief, wound healing or the like, while CO2 laser enjoyed the first choice for surgery. Unlike CO2 laser, the diode laser beam is transmitted through an optical fiber. This means that the laser beam can be delivered through rigid or flexible endoscopes. By processing the fiber tip has made it possible to perform surgeries commonly performed by CO2 laser. We have also developed various metal probes to respond to the demands from veterinarians. From vigorous surgery to soft therapy, from abdominal surgery to claw removal or ophthalmology, Diode Laser is a sprinter in various fields, i.e. your clinic.
The advantage of Gigaa diode lasers in Veterinary applications
Benefits of laser surgery:
In the surgical area, the laser ray can be used for the cut of tissue like a scalpel. Through the high temperatures of up to 300 °C, the cells of the treated tissue pop open and evaporate. This process is called vaporization. The vaporization can be very well controlled through the selection of the parameters for laser performance, focussing of the laser ray, distance between the tissue and reaction time and therefore point-exactly applied. The strength of the used fiber-optic decides furthermore how fine the executed cut becomes. The influence of the laser causes a coagulation of the surrounding blood vessels so that the field remains freely from bleedings. After-bleeding in the cut area is avoided.
If the laser ray is not used point-exactly but defocused, it can be applied for laser irradiation as well. This has the advantage that the irradiation times can be shortened considerable and repetition treatments are necessary only after clearly longer time distances. This treatment has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and cure-promoting effects and can be therefore used for the treatment of healing of wound disturbances as well as for illnesses of the locomotorium (acute and chronic joint inflammations, musculature inflammations, sinew inflammations or tenosynovitises).
