OmniGuide's flexible laser tech:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

OmniGuide has CE-marked for sale in Europe its flexible CO2 laser fibres for use in minimally-invasive surgery. Its OtoBeam and BeamPath systems, which are already approved in the US, can now be sold in all countries that accept the CE-mark, said the Cambridge, Massachusetts firm. Most CO2 lasers have a rigid articulating arm that limits the surgeon to procedures where a "line-of-sight" from outside the patient's body is possible, the firm claimed. The OmniGuide fibre, which is fitted to this existing base of CO2 laser systems, allows physicians to place the fibre into the patient's body under endoscopic guidance to treat lesions within the skull base, airway and larynx.
