Laser ENT Surgery

The use of lasers in ENT surgery is common practice today. Thanks to the evolution of laser sources, the surgical otolaryngology approach has been revolutionized by the ability to perform minimally invasive, highly precise surgery, suitable for a wide range of treatments for diseases of ear/nose/throat.

The most used source is the CO₂ laser, particularly appreciated for the high degree of precision in cutting combined with an excellent coagulation effect.

SmartXide² and SmartXide HS, the CO₂ laser systems by JenaSurgical, represent a turning point towards surgery that is easier, faster, safer and more effective. Technological developments and the ongoing scientific research carried out in laboratories at Jena and in specialized centers worldwide, took the SmartXide² beyond ordinary use, with a decisive impact on laser technology for ENT.

The SmartXide² system further enhances the well-known advantages of CO₂ laser surgery. Its innovative RF CO₂ laser source, featuring exclusive PSD® (Pulse Shape Design) technology, generates pulses (U-Pulse) specifically designed for surgical applications, operating in total synergy with the HiScan Surgical scanning system.

The energy density achieved with a small focused spot combined with high peak power and ultra-pulsed emission mode provides advanced performance in photoablation, especially using the EasySpot Hybrid micromanipulator and the surgical microscope.

The surgeon can simply control the main operative functions without having to look away from the microscope, thanks to the micromanipulator’s joystick. This allows for perfect control of cutting depth, shape and size of ablation figures.
