Abstract:
A reusable laser probe with single-use optic fiber may include a reusable handle, an optic fiber fixture, and a single-use optic fiber. The single-use optic fiber may include an optic fiber having an optic fiber distal end and an optic fiber proximal end. The optic fiber may be disposed in a first transitory connector having a first transitory connector distal end and a first transitory connector proximal end wherein the optic fiber distal end extends a fixed distance from the transitory connector distal end. The optic fiber may be disposed in a second transitory connector having a second transitory connector distal end and a second transitory connector proximal end wherein the optic fiber proximal end ex- tends a fixed distance from the second transitory connector distal end. The first transitory connector may be inserted in the reusable handle and the second transitory connector may be inserted in the optic fiber fixture.
