Abstract

See full text

A laser energy soft tissue aspiration device comprises a cannula defining an aspiration lumen and having one or more aspiration inlet ports at a distal end. A laser energy transmission guide delivers laser energy from the proximal end of the cannula to the distal end which can be inserted to a tissue removal site within a patient. Reciprocating longitudinal motion of the cannula along with suction provided within the lumen can cause soft tissue to be suctioned into the lumen for removal. Laser energy contained within the lumen and directed by an optical delivery system can ablate soft tissue pulled within the lumen. The optical delivery system can further protect the terminal point of the laser energy transmission guide by isolating it, or removing it from the flow of aspirated tissue.
