Description

Why Holmium? The versatile Two Micron laser

Strong absorption - efficient ablation

The pulsed Two Micron laser radiation of the Sphinx Holmium laser is highly absorbed in water and the biological tissue. The laser energy is converted into heat within a depth of the tissue of less than 0.5 mm and thus used for ablation purposes by vaporization of tissue.

Strong absorption - shallow penetration

In soft tissue surgery efficient vaporisation is achieved without deep penetration or uncontrolled tissue necrosis.

Strong absorption - safe operation

In a hydrous solution, the range of the Holmium laser radiation is restricted to the volume immediately in front of the fibre tip thus allowing the safe application also on sensitive surfaces. Tissue more than 5 mm apart from the fibre is screened off by the hydrous solution and will not be affected by the laser radiation.

Long pulses - excellent hemostasis

Long laser pulses of up to 800 μs provide an excellent hemostasis in soft tissue surgery.

 

The Sphix Holmium laser is easy and safe to use. The user is guided by easy to understand menus. All settings of the laser are displayed by colored bar graphs which can be recognised at a glance. Due to the bright display, the screen can be clearly read even from a distance. In addition, the user is supported by acoustic signals. Unique features are the vertical fiber port and the extendible fiber support which ensures that the laser fiber is guided to the operating area from above. This arrangement ensures the freedom of action in the OR.
