Abstract

The probe guides a laser beam during a surgical operation. It is tubular, being placed directly against or inserted in the tissue. There can be an end piece (40) with absorbent surface, heated by the beam and in contact with the tissue, or alternatively transparent and through which the beam passes. As a further alternative there can be a light-conductive fibre in direct contact with the tissue, a further part of the probe being preferably also in contact with the tissue simultaneously.
