OmniGuide Announces Launch of LightPath(TM) CO2 Laser Fiber
Date:10/8/2007

Smaller Flexible Fiber Enables More Precise Surgical Laser Procedures

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- OmniGuide, Inc., a company pioneering flexible CO2 laser fibers for precision surgery, announced today the launch of its LightPath(TM) fiber for use in minimally-invasive surgical procedures.

The LightPath fiber features a fine spot size down to 200 microns enabling surgeons to safely conduct more precise procedures in Laryngology, Head & Neck Surgery, Neurotology, and Skull Base Surgery. The LightPath product employs an OmniGuide's proprietary "photonic bandgap" technology exclusive to all OmniGuide fibers, and for the first time provides a spot size and energy density level comparable to "line-of-sight" CO2 laser tools being used today.

"The LightPath product allows surgeons to cut finer incisions non- invasively, increase margin precision and minimize damage to healthy tissue while maintaining the well known safety features of CO2 laser light," explains MIT Professor Yoel Fink, OmniGuide co-founder and CEO. "OmniGuide is honored to continue to deliver breakthrough technologies to the benefit of patients and surgeons."

While CO2 laser energy offers unparalleled precision and a high degree of control over penetration into soft tissue, until recently, CO2 lasers have been limited to line-of-sight procedures due to the absence of a fiber delivery system. OmniGuide's unique technology has extended the reach of this surgical tool to minimally invasive procedures in Otology, Laryngology, Head & Neck Surgery, Laparoscopy, Gynecology, Gastroenterology and Pulmonology procedures for which there is the potential to damage delicate untargeted structures. The technology has already been used in over 1,200 such surgical procedures in some 150 medical centers.

The LightPath flexible CO2 laser fiber is now available in the United States and Europe.
