The use of the Lumenis Pulse™ and VersaPulse® PowerSuite™ laser systems and delivery devices in urology is contraindicated for patients who are unable to receive endoscopic treatments or are intolerant to prolonged anesthesia, as well as for resection or excision of large vascularized organs. Holmium lasers are intended solely for use by physicians trained in the use of the Ho:YAG (2.1 μm) wavelength.
Incorrect treatment settings can cause serious tissue damage. The laser should be used only on tissues that are fully observable. See the system’s user manual for a complete list of contraindications and risks.
