Laser Treatment: New Medical Devices Introduced by Medikabazaar Making a Mark in the Indian Healthcare Market
Laser treatments are all the rage in India. From skin treatments to laser hair removal, this procedure is a prominent practice in the country. However, laser treatments are not only restricted to cosmetic purposes but are also conducted inside the body for various medical purposes replacing traditional painful surgeries and reducing recuperation time. Laser treatments are also endovenous, i.e. within and/or through a vein which are administered to treat varicose veins, while certain laser procedures are directed at curing bladder, kidney stones, and tumors.
In this article I would like to stress on the two particular products which have been recently introduced by Medikabazaar for the Indian healthcare market. They are aimed at certain medical ailments which are mentioned above. Like always, we are striving to bring the best medical devices and as a part of this endeavor, Medikabazaar has partnered with South Korean manufacturers, Wontech for their leading and advanced laser treatment products.
Wontech Veincare 1470nm Diode Surgical Laser
This is an advanced laser which is dedicated towards the treatment of varicose veins. The machine comes with 1470nm laser wavelength which has high water absorption thus enabling doctors to perform the procedure with reduced powers. Additionally, it has the relevant fibers as thin as 4 French which can comfortably enter the veins unlike the other products in the market. It is known that a patient tends to feel certain aftereffects after a typical laser treatment. They include bruising, swelling, a sudden change in the color of the skin, and pain. However, with Veincare, as there is nominal damage to the surrounding tissues, post-operative pain, and ecchymosis is reduced to a large extent along with decreased side-effects. Apart from supporting a variety of minimally invasive high volume treatments, the machine is quite safe and easy to use and can be operated by both experienced doctors, and those who are starting their practice. One of major facets of this machine is that it is cost-effective and is significantly lower priced than its competing products in the Indian market making it the go-to device for an efficient varicose veins treatment. The fibers are also available in marked varieties which helps the doctor keep a precise track of usage. Optional accessories include automatic pull system and applications for other venous disorders. Veincare is available at highly competitive pricing and free placement options where the hospital pays only for the fiber.
Holinwon 30 (Prima)
This FDA approved machine which is designed especially for efficient urology surgery uses the Holmium (Ho:YAG) laser which has a wavelength of 2100nm. This allows the machine to absorb high amount of water and biological tissues thus resulting in flawless ablation, cutting and hemostatic functionalities. There is restricted radiation penetration (0.3-0.4 mm) which results in reduced damages to the surrounding tissues. Holinwon 30 is equipped with a proprietary technology which allows it to automatically change the emission settings as per the fiber diameter and the chosen operational mode. The machine is proficient in treating ureteral, bladder, kidney, biliary stones and bladder tumors. It has high power up to 30 watts which leads to quicker tissue incisions. It is especially designed for fragmenting stones and with a high pulse energy of up to 3J, the hardest of stones are easily broken. It is also very flexible in its operations as it can work with various indications, and at a high power with various small fibers as well. The Holinwon 30 enables patients to recover from their ailments quickly along with the least side-effects. It also enables doctors to effectively administer minimally invasive surgeries with positive medical outcomes. The machine comes with the Holmium Laser Fiber Line which is operational with a wide range of fibers with diameters ranging from 275-550μm.

In India, reports state that there are more than 10 million cases of varicose veins every year while a significant 30% of the adults are afflicted by this disease. In renal cases, a report titled “Chronic Kidney Disease in India: Challenges and Solutions,” the prevalence rate of chronic kidney disease (CKD)
in India is 800 per million population with increased number of patients ending up with end-stage renal disease (ESRD).
These statistics verify the need of advanced medical equipment like Veincare and Holinwon 30 to help Indian medical establishments counter the increasing number of cases in the country. The better the devices, the better the chances of us treating the existing diseases while keeping us prepared for the challenges to come in the future.
