Example of application:

Performing the Stapes Surgery with the laser can be supported by a laser scanner system. The inexpensive alternative would be a manual procedure with fiber optics. The surgery is performed to "drill a hole" into the footplate to vaporize parts of the stapes and the remainder of the stapes is removed. This operation is usually performed under local anesthesia and requires but a short period of hospitalization and convalescence. A prosthesis or implant is then placed into this opening and connected to the second hearing bone, or the incus to improve hearing again.

Various treatments can be applied with an A.R.C. Laser:

  • Cholesteatomas
  • Stapes surgery
  • Close Stapesprothesen
  • Mucosa-coagulation
  • Paracenteses, myringotomy
  • Vascular lesions
  • Hemangiomas
  • Telangiectasia
  • Tumor vaporization
