for the treatment of retinal diseases and glaucoma
MicroPulse® is a laser delivery modality that adds fine control of photothermal effects in laser photocoagulation. In conventional photocoagulation, the temperature rise for an intended intraoperative endpoint is controlled by adjusting the power and the exposure duration of the continuous-wave (CW) laser emission.
With MicroPulse®, the steady CW emission is "chopped" into a train of short laser pulses, whose "width" ("ON" time) and "interval" ("OFF" time) are adjustable by the surgeon. A shorter MicroPulse® "width" limits the time for the laser-induced heat to spread to adjacent tissues, thus providing fine control of energy delivered. A longer MicroPulse® "interval" between pulses allows cooling to take place before the next pulse is delivered.
MicroPulse® laser therapy is a tissue-sparing solution for the treatment of retinal diseases and glaucoma.View product details
