The 445-nm blue laser has only recently come into surgical practice for the treatment of diseases of the ENT organs. The article describes experience of using the 445-nm Wolf TruBlue laser during planned surgical interventions in the otorhinolaryngology departments of the University Clinic of the A.I. Evdokimov MSUMD. The 445-nm blue laser is a lightweight compact laser operating with a fiber light guide, combining the possibility of contact and remote tissue exposure, with a pronounced photoangiolytic and hemocoagulating effect. The study of the prospects for its further application in endoscopic endonasal surgery of the paranasal sinuses and the skull base, ear microsurgery, and endolaryngeal surgery is currently of scientific interest.
