The T1470 ProTouch Diode Laser System, from Convergent, is the first 1470 nm laser system designed specifically for the treatment of BPH. Its wavelength 1470 nm is strongly absorbed by water and hemoglobin, which makes it ideal for ablation of soft tissue. As the energy of the laser ablates the tissue, it closes at the same time on the blood vessels to minimize bleeding. Unlike KTP lasers, the protection system of the tip of the fiber of the patented ProTouch allows the surgeon to operate in contact mode, which provides the tactile sensation of a scalpel or a loop of fiber without destroying the electrode. The laser ProTouch offers excellent vaporization and coagulation of tissue resection of the prostate, bladder tumors, bladder neck contracture, urethral strictures, and excision of tumors of the penis. It has the following benefits: 1) 1470 nm wavelength, 2) Fiber tip protection system, 3) Top-hat waveform, 4) Superpulse in Superpulse™ (SIS) technology, 5) Portable and cost effective form-factor, AND 6) A wide range of fiber-optic accessories.
