Intense training, in all medical directions mentioned above, will be carried out on the basis of faculty " Low-invasive rekonstruktive-plastic and laser surgery " of Saint Petersburg State Medical Academy in the name of Mechnikov I.I. together with Saint Petersburg and Northwest Centre of laser medicine.
Laser technologies can play a main role in treatment of the oncological diseases of various localisation. The most effective are the photodynamic therapy (FDT), the selective laser hypårthermia (SLH), and also a combination of these methods.
For realisation of these methods laser devices " Atcus-2 " (FDT with use of the newest domestic photosensibilizer of the second generation - Fotoditazin), " Atcus -15" (SLH) and " Atcus -10" (combination of FDT and SLH) are created. The photosensibilizer Fotoditazin prodused by firm Veta-Grand.
In some cases, when the traditional methods of treatment are not applicable due to certain reasons, the laser treatment could be the only way.
Clinical testing of the semiconductor laser device "Atcus-15" were held in the St.-Petersburg Scientific research institute for oncology named after N.N. Petrov of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation. Basing on their results the patents of the Russian Federation (¹ 2122452, ¹ 2134603) for treatment of neoplasms with the selective laser hypårthermia method were received.
Since 1998 the medical laser devices of "Atcus" series are intensively used in leading medical centres of Russia for development of the treatment methods for various diseases:
Main advantages of Atcus-15 are high accuracy and precise control during the operation, smaller post-operative edema,
considerable decrease of bleeding and pain, simplicity of service and usage of the laser, and finally, its low price, which increases economic
efficiency of the laser cabinet. External air- or water-cooling is not required for operation of the laser.
