Tehran, YJC. Researchers as Iran National Center for Laser Science and Technology have developed a laser system for prostate gland surgery.

"Due to its wavelengths, the system enjoys applications which other laser surgery systems don't,” said Hossein Bazyar, a researcher in the project, providing comments on the specifications of the system.

According to Bazyar, the basic factor to a laser is its wavelength. He has said that the newly-developed laser's wavelength enhances its absorption by the prostate gland tissue to its highest point. Therefore the surgery is performed in the least possible time and with more ease.

Bazyar added "This system needs less time in prostate surgery compared to other systems. Also the patient will need a shorter rehabilitation period, in some cases reducing the need for a catheter to one day only.”

The project was launched in 2010 with the aim of acquiring the technology for the development of solid-state laser.

Bazyar also provided comments that the system is consisted of three parts, the head-laser, the mechanical, and the electronic parts. "The design and production of the laser part has been done entirely domestically by the team and it included the stages of overhaul, selection of needed parts, laser arrangement, and the development of laser stable enough for the application.”

"The mechanical part is focused on the case and the cooling system which is modeled on parts of chiller and electric valve systems. Also the electronic part, software and control box, was made completely by the team,” he added.
