The 3D revolution for vertebral disc prolapse: PL3D™ Diode laser for disc decompression
INTERmedic’s PL3D™ is a revolutionary laser system, specially designed for the minimally invasive treatment of the vertebral disc prolapse. The laser procedure is effective, fast and safe, reducing intradiscal pressure by shrinkage caused by the laser energy.
The reduction of intradiscal pressure with PL3D™ laser has revolutionised intravertebral surgery: a small part of the nucleus pulposus is vaporized to reduce pressure through an outpatient minimally invasive procedure under local anesthesia.
PL3D™ works with a 980nm laser diode, the optimal wavelength for disc decompression. Its greater absorption by the chromophore water (five times more than 810nm laser and double than 1064nm) makes that less laser energy is needed to perform treatments, spreading lower heat to surrounding tissue and reducing side effects.
