Abstract
PLDD is neither conservative method or surgical one, but the results of PLDD are so excellent and the time of treatment is short. In 1999 we made a new fiber for PLDD, named Active Fiber. And we have experienced over 1600 cases with active fiber. The system controls the front irradiation of laser beam, and performs enhanced irradiation. Active fiber makes PLDD more safety than old fiber, easy to vaporize with minimum laser irradiation for hernia. The author will mention construction and principle of the active fiber, in addition, discuss the results of animal models and actual clinical cases.
