Title : Lasers in proctology: Are they here to stay?


Aim: To analyze the role and utility of lasers in proctology.

Introduction: In modern medicine, lasers are increasingly utilized for treatment of a variety of pathologies as interest in less invasive treatment modalities intensifies. As minimally invasive techniques are continually being sought out for the treatment of different pathologic processes, the use of lasers has become increasingly popular in modern medicine. In addition to their practical usefulness in the operating room, lasers have a wide range of applications in ophthalmology, lithotripsy, the diagnosis and treatment of various cancers, as well as dermatologic and cosmetic procedures.

Latest in the applications of lasers is proctology, last few years have seen lot of procedures being developed and used in management of benign anorectal disorders.

With multiple publication claiming different success rates in different anorectal disorders, there is doubt in the mind of surgeons as to the efficacy of lasers in anorectal disorders. We present an analytical study and our experience on the use of lasers in proctology.

Materials and methods: A number of published articles were evaluated and with the relevant information from all the articles, statistical analysis was done for the collected data.

Results: Lasers though promising, have a long way to go to prove their use-fullness in anorectal diseases.

Conclusion: If the information about the existing lasers, their uses and their potholes are evaluated and worked upon, we can go a long way in making anorectal surgeries minimally invasive and painless.
