Quanta System, headquartered near Milan, Italy, produces laser systems for some of the world’s leading brands.

Quanta’s own brand lasers are extremely well implemented in North America and Italy with awareness growing rapidly in other European markets due to the versatility, technological prowess and quality of the Quanta System products. Litho, the reference in laser lithotripsy.

The Litho surgical system is a Holmium laser with a two micron wavelength and a maximum power output of 30W. The Litho is available as both a tower and table-top device.

 



The 2 micron wavelength is highly absorbed by water and biological tissues and operates either in short-pulse mode or long-pulse mode. Short pulse mode is highly effective in the fragmentation of calculi and in tissue ablation while the long pulse mode is particularly suited to cutting soft tissues, providing excellent haemostasis and coagulation with minimal damage of surrounding tissues due to its low penetration depth.

The Dusting Effect feature of the Litho further enhances its versatility, allowing hard stones, particularly renal stones, to be reduced to small particles that may eliminate the need of basket extraction thereby reducing the total procedure time.
