Laser groups (1-5): The SmartLite KTP laser (Deka, Calenzano, Italy) system was used during the irradiation procedure.
We performed several partial treatments with a 532 nm KTP laser (4 mm spot size, 20 J/[cm.sup.2] radiant exposure, 15 ms pulse width) with excellent clearance (Fig.
In September 2013, the patient underwent an uneventful KTP laser stapedotomy on the right side, while the ossicular chain was reconstructed with a self-crimping heat memory NiTiBOND piston.
It seems wise to choose treatment with KTP laser for patients at high risk of haemorrhage as an increasing number of studies have suggested that bleeding incidence is lower.
Laser vaporization was performed with an 80-W KTP laser (532-nm wavelength) using the GreenLight PVP System [quasicontinuous wave laser (Laserscope, San Jose, CA, USA)].
The KTP laser energy induces a photochemical reaction on the bleaching gel; this photochemical activation provides a higher intrinsic overall radical yield than thermal activation: heating of the teeth is highly reduced.
Six or fewer weekly treatments with the Aura 532-nm variable-pulse KTP laser produced up to 95% improvement in inflammatory lesions in all 175 patients with Fitzpatrick skin types I-V and mild to moderate acne on the face, chest, back, or arms.
Because of its unprecedented high power, the KTP laser pulses, delivered through a fiber the thickness of a hair inserted in the urinary passage, completely vaporize obstructive prostate tissue.
A KTP laser was used to address the tumor's vascular supply.
Biopsies have been performed using two different wavelengths with the following parameters: diode laser 808 nm (SOL, DenMatItalia, Italy), power: 2W in CW, fluence: 2400 J/[cm.sup.2], fiber spot: 320 [micro]m; KTP laser 532 nm (SmartLite, DEKA, Italy), power: 1.5 W in PW, fluence: 212 J/[cm.sup.2], fiber spot: 300 [micro]m.
These lasers are often referred to as angiolytic lasers, and the two most commonly used for these purposes are the Pulsed Dye laser and the Pulsed KTP laser. These lasers can be used to remove small lesions and to ablate small blood vessels (Figures 3a and 3b).
