Lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei treated with 1,565 nm nonablative fractionated laser resurfacing: a case report.
We utilized a non-sequential scanning 1,565 nm nonablative fractionated laser to treat this patient. After only one treatment he had significant improvement. He has been subsequently treated five times in the past 6 months and has continued to improve. The novel 1,565 nm nonablative fractionated las...
Diode laser-induced tissue effects: in vitro tissue model study and in vivo evaluation of wound healing following non-contact application.
The basic difference between the various common medical laser systems is the wavelength of the emitted light, leading to altered light-tissue interactions due to the optical parameters of the tissue. This study examines laser induced tissue effects in an in vitro tissue model using 1,470 nm diode la...
Pulsed versus continuous wave CO2 laser excisions of 100 oral fibrous hyperplasias: a randomized controlled clinical and histopathological s...
In experimental animal studies, pulsing the CO2 laser beam has been shown to reduce the thermal damage zone of excised oral mucosal tissue. However, there is still controversy over whether this is borne out under clinical conditions. To compare the outcome following excisional biopsies of fibrous hy...
A retrospective review of pain control by a two-step irradiance schedule during topical ALA-photodynamic therapy of non-melanoma skin cancer...
We used an initial low irradiance until 90% of the protoporphyrin IX was photobleached, followed by a high irradiance interval until the prescribed fluence was delivered. Success of this pilot investigation motivated integration of the protocol into routine practice. Here, we present a retrospective...
The effect of increased maximum power output on perioperative and early postoperative outcome in photoselective vaporization of the prostate...
We analyzed intraoperative data and early postoperative results after photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP) with the 180-W, 120-W, and 80-W laser. A retrospective pair-to-pair comparison was performed including 80 consecutive patients who underwent PVP for the treatment of benign prostat...
