Selective laser vaporization of polypropylene mesh in tissue

  Motivation for the study Surgical mesh is used to treat female stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and transvaginal pelvic organ prolapse (POP). However, erosion of this synthetic, non-absorbable mesh is a common complication and in more than half of these cases, a surgical excision of the mesh in the operating room is required. The mesh removal is technically challenging, may damage healthy adjacent tissues, and in some cases must be… READ MORE

Range Finding

    Laser range finding applications set several requirements for the laser device. High output power is required at the same time in very short pulses of even picosecond range. However, the required power is defined by the distance and reflectivity of the target. High power can be achieved by constructing several emitter stacks or by increasing a single emitter dimensions. Light pulses up to 120-150 Watts can be generated… READ MORE
