Abstract

The most suitable laser wavelength for endoscopic use in the GI tract is a Neodymium-YAG laser with the wavelength of 1.06 µm and a power output of 100 W. The other wavelengths of 1.32 µm up to 3.4 µm are still experimental as well as eximer lasers and dye lasers used in tumours dotted with HPD. Pulsed Nd: YAG lasers and pulsed dye lasers have boon tried endoscopically for destruction of biliary stones.
