Over the earlier ten years, carbon dioxide laser surgical procedure has made amazing strides and is now utilized to each box of surgical procedure with out exception. it's the purpose of this e-book to list the paintings performed during this box within the division of Plastic and Maxillofacial surgical procedure of the Beilinson scientific middle and Tel Aviv college scientific college, Israel, in addition to that played in organization with different leave­ ments. during this context, one feels that it's incumbent upon one to recognize the cooperation of the clinical and paramedical employees of the dep. of Plastic and Maxillofacial surgical procedure of the Beilinson clinical middle, in addition to that of Prof. Yehuda Shindel and Dr. Daniel Katenelson of the dep. of Ear, nostril and Throat, Dr. Y ona Tadir of the dept of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Dr. Itamar Kott of the dept of common surgical procedure. I may still wish to make precise point out of Dr. Ralph Ger of latest York, who labored with me at the unique medical trials, and the engineer Uzi Sharon, who constructed the Sharplan Laser with me. The growth of Laser surgical procedure is easily proven through the participation within the 4 conferences of the overseas Society for Laser surgical procedure, the 1st of which used to be held in Tel Aviv in 1975 with an attendance of sixty five and the final in Tokyo in 1981 with an attendance of 1200.

2 Tongue Surgery Apart from the hemostatic effect of the CO 2 laser, which reduces the intraoperative bleeding, the absence of postoperative oozing enables a graft to be placed on the defect. The lack of postoperative pain and discomfort make this type of surgery advantageous. We have also found that after laser surgery in the oral cavity and oropharynx, there is minimal postoperative edema so that in the vast majority of cases a tracheostomy can be avoided.
