The Boston Scientific Scimed, Inc. patent solves the following problem:

Medical laser used in the method of treatment that involves various areas of practice, including, for example, urology, neurology, otorhinolaryngology, general anesthetic in eye, dentistry, gastroenterology, cardiology, gynecology, and thoracic and orthopedic procedures. Usually, these methods require precisely controlled delivery of laser energy, and often the places where the laser energy delivered is located deep within the body; for example, the prostate or the Fallopian tube. Because of the location of the target tissues deep within the body, the medical procedure requires that the optical fiber that is flexible and maneuver. Various sources of light can be used with optical fiber devices dependent upon the need for light source; for example, pulsed laser, diode laser and neodymium laser can be used as a light source. Representative laser used in medical treatment methods include Ho: YAG laser and Nd: YAG laser.

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:
