FDA Approves Trimedyne’s Surgical Laser: Irvine-based Trimedyne Inc., a manufacturer of medical lasers, has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to market its Optilase 900 Argon Laser for use in general surgery, including an increasingly popular procedure for removing gall bladders through a small incision. The laser was designed to produce more precise cuts, faster healing and less scarring than conventional surgery using a scalpel.
