Thulium Laser Systems

The RevoLix platform of continuous wave Thulium Lasers includes the precision vaporization and safety oriented RevoLix, available in various power configurations and multiple performance options.

Unique Combined Thulium/ Holmium Laser – for BPH and Stones

RevoLix DUO is the first and only universal laser in urology for lithotripsy, BPH, endoscopic, laparoscopic and open surgery. This versatility is achieved by combining a pulsed Holmium laser with a continuous wave Thulium laser in a single laser unit.

RevoLix Thulium laser shows outstanding tissue ablation rate, hemostasis and economics for the application in urology. Surgical protocols for the treatment of BPH include vaporization (ThuVAP), vaporesection (ThuVARP), enucleation (ThuLEP) and vapoenucleation (ThuVEP) of prostate. Additional applications are in gynaecology, neurosurgery*, ENT and pneumology.

Lithotripsy in the lower, medial and upper urinary tract with rigid and flexible instruments is managed with the integrated Holmium laser. Stone dusting and fragmentation is highly efficient and irrespective of the chemical stone composition.

Both laser sources of the RevoLix DUO are available from the same fiber port. This feature allows using the same laser fiber for soft tissue surgery and for lithotripsy.

RevoLix DUO Highlights
  • No blood loss, no transfusions
  • Quick recovery
  • Short hospital stay
  • Less postoperative care
  • Short catheterization time in BPH treatment
  • Precise surgery
  • No deep tissue penetration
  • Safe operation
  • Excellent haemostasis
  • Treatment of patients under anticoagulant
  • Ejaculation protective BPH surgery
  • Multi-disciplinary

Thulium laser for soft tissue surgery 

LISA Laser Products developed the RevoLix Thulium laser and applications in soft tissue surgery on the grounds of its understanding of laser tissue interaction and the LISA competence in laser technology.

The RevoLix Thulium laser is the only laser system ever developed specifically for soft tissue surgery. The RevoLix laser wavelength is 2 micron. This wavelength is absorbed in any tissue by the ubiquitous water molecule. The RevoLix wavelength is similar to Holmium but the emission mode is continuous wave (cw) instead of pulsed – thus providing a continuous vaporization effect instead of tissue disruption as for the Holmium laser. The strong absorption of the RevoLix wavelength in tissue, in any irrigation fluid and in water provides the immediate tissue effect, limited penetration, excellent hemostasis and
protection against collateral damage.

RevoLix unifies the advantages of formerly existing surgical laser principles in a single unit. At 200 watt continuous wave the  RevoLix tissue  vaporization rate reaches 4 g/min –  a safe alternative to mechanical tissue morcellation following Thulium laser enucleation of prostate (ThuLEP, ThuVEP).

RevoLix is a multi-disciplinary surgical laser for the application in urology (surgical protocols for the treatment of BPH include vaporization (ThuVAP), vaporesection (ThuVARP), enucleation (ThuLEP) and vapoenucleation (ThuVEP) of prostate, gynaecology, neurosurgery*, ENT and pneumology.

RevoLix Highlights
  • No blood loss, no transfusion
  • Quick recovery

  • Less postoperative care
  • Short catheterization time in BPH treatment

Table top Thulium laser for soft tissue surgery

RevoLix jr. is the only table top laser specifically developed for soft tissue surgery. The RevoLix jr. laser wavelength is 2 microns. This wavelength is similar to Holmium, but the emission is continuous wave (cw) instead of pulsed. RevoLix jr. unifies the advantages of formerly existing surgical laser principles in a single unit.

RevoLix jr. Thulium laser shows outstanding tissue ablation rate, hemostasis and economics for the application in endoscopic, laparoscopic, minimally invasive surgery in ENT, pneumology, neurosurgery*, gynaecology, gastroenterology, urology, visceral surgery and laparoscopy.

RevoLix Jr. Highlights
  • RevoLix jr. offers the cutting and ablation properties like the well known CO2 laser from a flexible fibre – no need for an articulated mirror arm or hollow waveguide.
  • RevoLix jr. laser radiation achieves excellent haemostasis like Nd:YAG and diode lasers – without the risk of deep tissue penetration.
  • RevoLix jr. tissue effect is shallow like the Holmium laser – however there is no trauma. Cutting edges are smooth and clean. In open surgery there is no splattering.
  • RevoLix jr. laser radiation is delivered to the surgical site by flexible fibres – ideal for endoscopic, laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery.
