    Laser fiber safety device helps prevent intraoperative fires and injuries

    Patient Pocket, LLC has launched the LaserDock, a single-use, disposable surgical laser fiber safety holder designed to house and protect laser fibers during laser surgery. “Regarding laser stone surgery, there are cases in which laser fiber safety is not addressed,” according to Steven Nakada, MD, of the Laser Safety Advisory Panel and the University of Wisconsin, Madison. The LaserDock has been cleared for marketing by the FDA under the 510(k) regulatory process. Used properly, it helps to prevent intraoperative fires and injuries due to accidental laser energy discharge, aiding surgeons and operating room personnel to better conform to FDA and Joint Commission standards. LaserDock can be used with holmium, GreenLight, and CO2 laser fibers.
