Abstract: Extensive photothermal surgical effects have been generated with artificial noncoherent light. Our ex vivo experiments produced the same type and extent of tissue damage ordinarily achieved with laser fiber-optic surgery, at comparable surgical efficacy, the motivation being the possibility of supplanting surgical lasers with a potentially far less expensive device. Maximum-flux optics reconstitute the immense power density at the core of an ultrabright discharge lamp inside an optical fiber the distal tip of which couples light into the organ. © 2006 American Institute of Physics.
