Abstract

A pulsed-laser-induced liquid jet (LILJ) is a new device used in neurosurgery to simultaneously crush, incise, and aspirate tissues and tumors, preserving blood vessels and nerves. In addition, a feature of a pulsed LILJ is its ability to excavate tissue at constant depth while a liquid jet is being repeatedly focused at the same point. To clarify the mechanisms of constant depth of excavation, we employed a gelatin phantom and extracted brain tissue using a high-speed camera, and we then confirmed that the liquid-reservoir- induced LILJ played an important role in enabling the safe usage of an LILJ.
