Solid-State Erbium Laser Surgical Cutting Probe

The present system developed by Vanderbilt researchers provides a combination of a base laser pump connected to a laser surgical probe via a connection assembly. The surgical probe has a disposable tip wherein the Er:YAG lasing occurs. This system is useful in laser surgeries involving high precision and appropriate power levels. In particular, intraocular surgeries could benefit from the use of such a system.

System for Determining the Orientation of a Bone Implanted Post

A method for determining an orientation of a base to which a fiducial marker is detachably mounted. The method includes the steps of determining the axis of symmetry for the fiducial marker and choosing the determined axis of symmetry of the fiducial marker as the axis of symmetry of the base.

Optical Stimulation of the Auditory Nerve

A cochlear implant placed in a cochlea of a living subject for stimulating the auditory system of the living subject, where the auditory system comprises auditory neurons. In one embodiment, the cochlear implant includes a plurality of light sources, {L.sub.i}, placeable distal to the cochlea, each light source, L.sub.1, being operable independently and adapted for generating an optical energy, E.sub.i, wherein i=1, . . . , N, and N is the number of the light sources, and delivering means placeable in the cochlea and optically coupled to the plurality of light sources, {L.sub.i}, such that in operation, the optical energies {E.sub.i} generated by the plurality of light sources {L.sub.i} are delivered to target sites, {G.sub.i}, of auditory neurons, respectively, wherein the target sites G.sub.1 and G.sub.N of auditory neurons are substantially proximate to the apical end and the basal end of the cochlea, respectively.
