Sunrise sLASE 210 Surgical Holmium:YAG Laser for Arthroscopic Laser Surgery
The sLASE 210 Laser system is a pulsed thulium-holmium-chromium-doped YAG (THC:YAG) solid-state laser that emits energy at a wavelength of 2.1 μm (Fig. 22–1). This wavelength is relatively new as a therapeutic energy source, but because of its unique effects on tissue the 2.1 μm holmium:YAG laser has rapidly developed into a user-friendly clinical tool with a growing number of surgical applications.
