Neodymium:YAG laser irradiation of urinary bladder tumors. Follow-up study of 100 consecutively treated patients



Neodymium:YAG laser irradiation of urinary bladder tumors. Follow-up study of 100 consecutively treated patients



Urology 25(6): 559-563



Advanced laser beam technology has made endoscopic destruction of urinary bladder tumors possible. The neodymium: YAG laser is more suited for this purpose than the other available laser systems because of the higher penetration power into biological tissue. Small superficial tumors are particularly suitable for this treatment, but it is also possible to deal with muscle invasive tumors. The treatment procedure is simple and well tolerated by the patients. Recurrence of tumor in the irradiated area can be avoided by precise irradiation. In spite of being a no-touch technique, however, laser does not appear to prevent the occurrence of new tumors in nonirradiated areas.
