Endoscopic papillotomy with neodymium yag laser an alternative to electrocautery



Endoscopic papillotomy with neodymium yag laser an alternative to electrocautery



Lasers in Surgery & Medicine 6(3): 364-368



With the presentation of two cases of succesfully performed endoscopic papillotomies, a new indication for Nd YAG laser treatment in gastroenterology is introduced. To the extent it thus far has been used, photocoagulation is a complementary alternative method if the usual papillotomy cannot be placed in the right cutting position.
