Compare CO2 laser with Argon laser.
|Co2 laser||Argon Laser||ND-YAG laser||KTP laser
|Gas medium||Crystal Rod medium||Similar to Argon but has more energy.
|Precise dissection c good soft tissue ablation||Soft tissue ablation poorer than CO2 and at high power.||Imprecise tissue destruction.||Less precise dissection and at high temperature.
|Haemostasis poorer than Argon seals vessels up to 0.5 mm diameter.||Haemostasis better than CO2 seals vessels up to 1.1 mm diameter.||Haemostasis better than CO2 seals vessels up to 1.5 mm diameter.||Haemostasis better than CO2 seals vessels.
|Wave length 10.6 cm||1.06 cm||
|Bone ablation: Poor||Bone ablation: Poor||Bone ablation: Good||
