How the DEKA SmartXide² TRIO is a safe surgical laser for medical procedures

In today’s rapidly advancing world of healthcare, medical lasers used in surgeries stand at the forefront of innovation, reshaping the landscape of surgical treatments in the United States. Fueled by technological breakthroughs, an aging demographic, and a growing preference for minimally invasive procedures, the demand for medical lasers is rising.
This article takes a closer look at medical lasers and its key facts, including the safety features of the DEKA SmartXide² TRIO.

What to know about medical lasers

Medical lasers have been instrumental in surgical rooms, ushering in an era of advanced surgical techniques and enhanced patient outcomes. These powerful and adaptable devices have facilitated the rise of minimally invasive procedures such as those assisted by robotic technology. This is creating a significant shift away from traditional open surgeries due to their associated risks and prolonged recovery times.

Here are some key facts about the impact of surgical lasers in the medical field today:

Proven technology

Surgical lasers boast proven technology with widespread usage across various specialties and departments. From ENT and urology to gynecology and neurology, their versatility enables precise and flexible treatment of a wide range of medical conditions.

Tunable pulses

Medical laser devices offer tunable pulses, allowing for targeted treatment by selectively absorbing laser energy in specific tissues. This feature minimizes collateral damage to surrounding structures and tailors the laser to the needs of each patient’s surgical case.

Precision and minimally invasive

Lasers are powerful and precise, enabling surgical teams to focus on specific targets and perform intricate procedures with reproducible results. Their minimally invasive nature reduces collateral damage and leads to shorter postoperative recovery periods.

Homeostasis control

Laser technology, especially advancements like DEKA TRIO’s optional 980 nm diode laser, plays a vital and effective role in achieving homeostasis. Surgeons have enhanced control, which contributes to increased patient safety and stability during procedures.

Reduced scarring

Minimal access procedures with surgical lasers result in smaller incisions and potential leads to reduced tissue damage and scarring — a favorable outcome for patients undergoing surgery.

Fiber optic delivery systems

Many surgical lasers utilize advanced delivery systems, such as fiber optic handpieces, to access challenging areas of the body. This flexibility expands the range of procedures benefiting from laser technology, making it an invaluable tool for doctors and surgeons.

Medical lasers like the DEKA SmartXide² TRIO are sophisticated systems and have become indispensable in today’s healthcare facilities. From intricate robotic assisted procedures to the swift, precise incisions made possible by lasers, this technology has fundamentally changed the way surgeries are performed.

Common patient concerns

Despite the proven effectiveness of surgical lasers, misconceptions persist. Laparoscopic surgery in particular is a very safe procedure but common concerns include:

Risk of complications

Like any surgery, laparoscopic procedures carry risks such as infection, bleeding, or organ damage. However, these risks are typically lower than those associated with open surgery. Advanced laser technologies, like the DEKA TRIO laser system, offer stability, consistent power, and precise beam control, minimizing the risk of thermal damage.

Incomplete removal of endometrial tissue

Complete removal of endometrial tissue during laparoscopic surgery can be challenging, potentially leading to recurrence. However, laparoscopic laser techniques have become essential in diagnosing, treating, and managing endometriosis. Benefits include enhanced visualization, reduced complications, and less damage to surrounding tissues.

Recovery time

While laparoscopy generally has a shorter recovery period than open surgery, patients may still experience discomfort, bloating, and fatigue post-procedure. Recovery time varies depending on the surgery’s extent and individual healing factors, ranging from a few days to several weeks. Patients are advised to rest, follow postoperative instructions, and gradually resume normal activities under medical supervision.

Laser technology plays a vital role in laparoscopic procedures for endometriosis. Surgical teams rely on the versatility and precision of advanced systems like the DEKA SmartXide² TRIO CO₂ laser to customize their approach based on patient preferences and specific case needs.

Types of surgeries to use the TRIO

DEKA has developed a cutting-edge device equipped with advanced scanning-aided micromanipulators and handpieces to cater to the clinical needs of various specialties. This includes procedures in ENT, neurosurgery, general surgery, and gynecology.

The rise in the utilization of surgical robots has further fueled interest in using fiber-guided surgical lasers for minimally invasive procedures, particularly for conditions like endometriosis.

With this versatile system, surgical teams can perform a range of procedures, including incision, excision, ablation, vaporization, and coagulation of soft tissues across medical specialties.

With the DEKA TRIO, surgeons can use this high-performing laser system in areas including:
