Augmentin (Amoxycillin, Clavulanic Acid)

Other names: Co-amoxiclav
Using lasers, surgeons have, with great precision, cut through tumors blocking a vital organ – not curing the patient but greatly relieving pain. Some cures actually have resulted from the removal of large benign growths. In patients too weak to endure major surgery, the laser can provide relief by burning away tumors that block the channels that take in air and liquids.
Dr. Mark Shikowitz works in the Otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat) Department at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, New York. One of his many research projects includes testing a new therapy for treating laryngeal papillomas – benign tumors of the larynx, which cause choking. They are generated by the human papilloma virus. Repeated treatments often are needed; the polyps tend to recur, Dr. Shikowitz says. First, he explains, he gives the patient an intravenous dose of a special photosensitive dye. Within 48 to 72 hours, the normal cells release the dye. But the tumor cells retain it and die when a laser is shined on them. The normal cells live.
Ear Surgery
Dr. Shikowitz and others in this specialty are using lasers for treating hearing loss that results when otosclerosis paralyzes a small bone in the ear called the stapes. A laser can drill a hole to permit the implantation of an artificial stapes.
Throat Surgery
Lasers do well in removing tonsils and soft tissues in the throat that cause snoring.
Prostate Surgery
Yearly, 300,000 to 600,000 patients undergo surgery on the prostate gland. This gland often enlarges after a man reaches age 50, creating a need for frequent urination but allowing passage only of a weakened stream. Traditional surgery removes the blockage with a small cutting instrument introduced through the penis. With lasers, the obstruction is burned away.
