Salsa URO 980 nm diode laser recently appeared as an effective source of energy in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia, achieving high absorption simultaneously through hemoglobin and water, due to its wavelength, thus postulating a high ablation capacity as well as good hemostasis. Its 980nm laser wavelength offers the best solution to the urologist, since SALSA URO incorporates in a single device the most advanced technology, both for vaporization and enucleation of the prostate, as well as for other urology indications.
Salsa URO laser is equipped with unique compressor cooling system.Elimination of radiators and Peltier modules significantly reduces the weight of the device and increasing its effectiveness.
Following features of the Salsa URO diode laser make it very useful instrument in prostate surgery:
The 980 nm wavelength of the laser provides the highest combined absorption in water and hemoglobin. As prostate tissue contains high percentage of water, our laser vaporizes it very effectively. Absorption of the laser energy by hemoglobin leads to excellent haemostasis and precise ablation of the obstructing tissue. Equal absorption in tissue either well or poor supplied with blood-optimal penetration depth regardless of the level of vascularization ( vs. KPT, Hol, Thu) Enables precise, minimally carbonized and virtually bloodless incision in prostatic tissue. Excellent haemostasis ensures minimal post-operative bleeding and preservation of surrounding tissue for a quick recovery ( vs. KPT, TURP ) Short time of the procedure( vs. Ho;YAG, Nd:YAG, KPT, Thu )
Metrum Cryoflex is a well-established European manufacturer of medical devices. First products launched on the market in 1992 were cryosurgical devices – Cryo-S series. Since that time we have been significantly expanding our product portfolio and now in our offer you can find wide range of devices for cryotherapy, pressotherapy, ozone therapy and most recently laser medicine. During last 20 years we have produced and sold more than 10 000 units on global medical market.Over 7000 private clinics are using our devices worldwide.
Within last 4 years we have allocated over 2 million Euro for R&D programs, design & production of technologically innovative products like surgical diode lasers, cryosurgical and cryotherapeutical devices which are protected by several international patents.
