Holmium Laser – Inter. Radiology
- Laser Type: Holmium
- Wavelength: 2100 nm
- Power: 35, 60 or 100W
- Weight: 189 lbs. - 35 W; 440 lbs. - 60W, 506 lbs. - 100 W
The Quanta System Litho 100 Holmium laser emits at a wavelength of 2100nm at frequencies up to 80Hz which is critical for effective stone dusting.
This is an intuitive feature that assists in modifying tissue cutting. Instead of trying multiple settings, it starts with preferred settings then provides 7 levels of pulse width to finely tune the effect of laser emission based on visual feedback.
Vapor Tunnel Effect
Vapor Tunnel consists of a single long pulse which limits retropulsion and improves fine stone ablation (dusting). It is designed to optimize energy delivery from minimum peak power within the selected output settings. The long pulse is optimal for fine dusting and especially good for renal stones that are difficult to access. Vapor Tunnel is also effective in the ureter.
Virtual Basket is a double pulse modulation that limits stone movement, while providing fine lithotripsy. In Virtual Basket mode, the first pulse is used to generate the vapor bubble and the second pulse travels through the bubble to ablate the target. Virtual Basket works well in all areas: renal, ureter, PCNL etc. and is especially good for HoLEP with improved cutting and hemostasis.
