Laser surgery is the best support for the urologist in the recent years thanks to the continuous advances in surgical lasers combined with fiber optics and miniaturized endoscopic instruments. Today the development of Endourology depends on laser technology able to perform with high precision and efficacy, be minimally invasive for the patient and go where a hand or scalpel could never reach.
Monocrom Flex laser module at 2 um is a perfect match for applications in the field of Urology, for treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) by vaporization, vaporesection, enucleation and vapoenucleation of prostate. Instead of using complex laser systems based on flashlight or laser pumped solid state lasers such as Holmium:YAG or a Thulium fiber laser, our product emits light at 2 um directly from a diode laser making it simple, efficient and cost-effective.
Moreover, the semiconductor material can be designed to emit in the range of wavelengths from 1900 to 2600 nm without changing the electro-optical efficiency allowing to adapt the emission wavelength to the absorption coefficient of the soft tissue. The emission mode can be selected to be continuous wave (CW) or Pulsed providing a broad range of operational parameters.

(*) Wavelength tunable by laser design.
The most known lasers used in Urology are the holmium and thulium lasers. These lasers offer advanced performance, with a lower intraoperative bleeding risk and shorter hospital stays of patients. However, diode lasers can offer a much improved performance in terms of cost and efficiency, not only making endoscopic procedures safer and less invasive than traditional open surgery but also much cheaper.
2µm Flex is a perfect laser solution for soft tissue surgery for applications in Urology. The laser wavelength is 2 um, which is absorbed by the ubiquitous water of the tissue molecules. Whereas Holmium:YAG lasers, our laser can be operated in continuous wave allowing a high rate of tissue vaporization.
The laser technology has been used since the 80s for the treatment ofBPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia). After several evolutions of laser sources and surgical techniques, today diode laser sources are one of the most advanced technology and high performance tools for endoscopic prostatectomy procedures.
