The acronym LASER, is a term constructed from Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Lasers are commonly described by the emitted wavelength, which determines the colour of the light, as well as the active lasing medium. Currently, over 40 types of lasers have been developed with a wide range of both industrial and medical uses. Moreover, advances made by gynaecologists in the field of operative hysteroscopy have developed a very great interest in the use of surgical lasers. Improvements in optics, light sources, hysteroscopes, and lasers have led several gynecologists to begin investigating the use of lasers for intrauterine surgical procedures. This review focuses on the physics, tissue interaction and applications of commonly used lasers in hysteroscopic surgery with particular attention to the latest promising results of the laser technology.
