OmniGuide公司无需麻醉的喉部激光手术系统问世

 一项微创手术通过内窥镜使用特殊的光纤输送CO2激光,能够清除由复发性呼吸道乳突状瘤导致的喉部与气管的肿瘤,而患者无需实施麻醉。

在过去,CO2激光已经被用于治疗复发性乳突状瘤,但是患者需要实施全身麻醉。现在OmniGuide光纤使用相同的CO2激光技术在门诊即可完成,患者无需在手术室中接受手术。OmniGuide光纤通过柔软的Pentax内窥镜输送激光能量,患者能够在手术之后立即回家。OmniGuide光纤是一种中空的圆柱状光子带状帽子光学光纤,是由OmniGuide通讯公司(Cambridge, MA, USA)研制成功的。

Wake Forest大学喉部疾病中心的声带与吞咽疾病中心(Winston-Salem, NC, USA)主任Jamie Koufman医生操作了该手术,他说:“这项由OmniGuide公司推出的技术是划时代的,将门诊喉部手术推至一个新的高度;而且使得喉部手术在门诊即可完成,而无需进入手术室。这样每例手术成本将节约数万美元,全国节约的成本将极其巨大。”Koufman医生在喉部激光手术、咽喉部返流、以及其他形式的喉部重建手术领域的造诣极高。

Unsedated Laryngeal Laser Surgery
 
A minimally invasive procedure using a CO2 laser delivered endoscopically with a special fiber was able to clear growths in the larynx and trachea caused by recurrent respiratory papilloma (RRP) without the
need for anesthesia.

In the past, CO2 lasers have been used to treat RRP but only in the operating room, with the patient under general anesthesia. Now, the OmniGuide fiber allows use of the same CO2 laser technology but in a clinic setting instead of the operating room. The OmniGuide fiber delivers the laser energy through a flexible Pentax endoscope and the patient can go home immediately following the procedure. The OmniGuide fiber is a hollow-core cylindrical photonic bandcap optical fiber, developed by OmniGuide Communications, Inc. (Cambridge, MA, USA).

“OmniGuide has introduced a cutting-edge technology that will push outpatient laryngeal surgery to a new level; and, by moving most of laryngeal surgery out of the operating room and into the clinic, the cost savings per procedure will be measured in the tens of thousands of dollars, and the national cost savings will be huge,” commented Dr. Jamie Koufman, the director of the Center for Voice and Swallowing Disorders of Wake Forest University at the Voice Center (Winston-Salem, NC, USA), who performed the procedure. Dr. Koufman has pioneered work in laryngeal laser surgery, laryngopharyngeal reflux, and other forms of laryngeal rehabilitation surgery.
