View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The introduction of microtechniques encouraged many neurosurgeons to approach more difficult surgical interventions; the need to provide more complex and efficient methods for medical investigations and treatment has triggered from the very beginning of the laser era the doctor's interest in using the lasers in combinations with such advanced techniques. Laser has reemerged as a neurosurgical instrument, offering the promise of added precision and increased gentleness. It is able to emit unionizing electromagnetic radiation with particular basic properties such as coherence, monochromaticity, directivity and intensity which may be used to develop new surgical methods conceived to efficiently replace some conventional surgical techniques or to open instrumental opportunities previously inaccessible.

The laser introduction in the current surgical technique has proved to be an extremely delicate problem from the beginning, since it is tightly related not only to the advantages the laser offers for the investigation and treatment of different diseases, but to the patient's and doctor (operator)'s safety as well. Meanwhile, the benefits offered by the laser beam use in tissues incision, coagulation, denaturation and eradication were established in each surgical field.
