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.

The main advantages of CO₂ laser surgery (with particular reference to the transoral laser microsurgery):

  • Simplicity
  • Speed
  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • Lowmorbidity
  • Possibilityof operating onelderlyand /or debilitated patientsand/or withpacemaker
  • Shorter hospitalization (cut in healthcare costs)
  • Results of surgical oncology equal to or even better than those of traditional surgery

These laser systems are excellent surgical instruments, characterized by remarkable hemostasis ability and reduced lateral thermal damage.

In addition to the CO₂ source, recognized as the gold standard for ENT applications also the diode lasers (SmartXide² and QuadroStarPRO) from the JenaSurgical product range are used in ENT, primarily in middle ear surgery, in endonasal surgery andin oral surgery.

Finally, thanks to the photomechanical action, the Ho:YAG (MultiPulse HoPLUS and MultiPulse Ho) lasers are used in ENT applications for the treatment of salivary stones (sialolithiasis).

In many cases, endoscopic laser lithotripsy is a viable minimally invasive alternative to transoral scialectomy or external sialoadenectomy procedures when too large salivary stones cannot be entirely removed from the ducts.

Main Treatments

Transoral Laryngeal Microsurgery: cordectomies and cordotomies | polyps and laryngeal papillomas (including diffuse papillomatosis) | cordal nodules | benign neoformations | Reinke’s edema | laryngocele | hyperkeratosis laryngitis | scar tissue | granulomas | congenital web | leukoplachia and erythroplasia | primary laryngeal tumors | surgery after unsuccessful radiotherapy | paralysis in adduction of the vocal chords | laryngotracheal stenosis | laryngeal amyloidosis

Middle Ear Surgery: stapedotomies and myringotomies

Oral Surgery: leukoplachias | erythroplasias | papillomas | hemangiomas | tumors (e.g. glossectomy) | Zenker’s diverticulum | choanal atresia | LAUP (Laser Assisted Uvulo Palatoplasty) | tonsillotomy & tonsillectomy | sialolithiasis (salivary stones)

Nasal, Endonasal & Endoscopic Sinus Surgery: turbinate reduction (for hyperplasia of turbinates) | septoplasty | removal of nasal obstructions (e.g. stenosis), recurrent polyposis nasi & sinuum, synechiae | rhinophyma | cheloids and hypertrophic scars

Tracheobronchial Tree: stenosis, nodules, polyps, tumors

Head & Neck: resection of tumors in sub-facial and neck areas
