Soft tissue treatment with Side firing fiber

Many elderly men worldwide are affected by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which is a benign enlargement of the prostate gland, causing weakening of the urinary stream, frequency, and urgency.

Failure to treat this condition can result in total urinary retention. In addition to drug treatment, minimally invasive surgery with the holmium laser can be used to treat this prostate gland disorder: YAG or diode lasers are used.

For this purpose, laterally emitting laser probes such as side firing fiber are used.
