Abstract

The authors report our experiences with the use of Nd-YAG laser in extripation of selected intracranial tumors:5 Meningiomas, 1 Acoustic neurinoma, 1 Hemangioendothelioma and 1 Oligodendroglioma. The Nd-YAG laser is very helpful to coagulate the pathologic vessels. And because of it's excellent coagulation the Nd-YAG laser is particularly useful when applied in highly vascular tumor as well as in high contents of mesenchymal structures within the tumors.
