Marc Remacle, M.D., Ph.D., Department of ORL and Head & Neck Surgery, University Hospital of Mont-Godinne, Belgium, and moderator of the Lumenis symposium, commented: "Providing precise, individualized patient care can be challenging for ENT surgeons because of the broad spectrum of surgical situations that can arise during the procedure. With the combined modality of the CO2 laser and the easy shift between free beam and fiber deliveries I can delicately address any clinical challenge while preserving healthy tissue, which is very important for the patient's recovery and comfort."

The AcuPulse DUO is the only integrated CO2 laser system that offers seamless adjustment between the two therapeutic modalities. The DUO platform is accompanied by a wide range of surgical tools, along with cost effective fibers that feature renewable tips, aiming beam and high energy transmission. The DUO CO2 laser system is designed for smart tissue management and for optimal treatment of hard-to-reach anatomy. Thousands of patients worldwide have experienced better care with surgeons who chose to enhance their surgical capabilities with the DUO modality.

"Precision is a critical factor for attaining zero tumor margins," said Joshua Schindler, M.D., Associate Professor and Medical Director, Northwest Center for Voice and Swallowing, Oregon Health & Science University. "Seeing the margin and surgical plane can be achieved by the unique capabilities of the fiber, which enables to complete surgical procedures, leaving no disease behind."

"The DUO technology represents an important breakthrough in CO2 laser surgery for ear, nose and throat conditions," said Tzipi Ozer-Armon, CEO of Lumenis. "More head and neck surgeons are recognizing the importance of having both free beam and fiber delivery options ready for challenging clinical cases, and our goal is to preserve the innovative approach and bring to market future advances in the field."
