Preparation of dissolvable albumin stents for vascular anastomosis with a 1.9 µm laser and in vitro mechanical strength assessments.
The results show that fast-dissolving stents can be produced reliably using the extrusion technique, and sterilized by gamma-irradiation. Without stay sutures, soldered vessels exhibited low tensile strength, but burst pressures comparable to sutured vessels. It was concluded that stay sutures would...
PDT in non-surgical treatment of periodontitis in HIV patients: a split-mouth, randomized clinical trial.
There were no differences in any of the investigated parameters observed at baseline in the two groups (P > 0.05). Moreover, participants in the SRP + PDT group presented a higher PPD reduction and CAL gain than those in the SRP group at 45 days and 3 and 6 months. At 6 months, sites receivi...
Er:YAG laser debonding of porcelain veneers.
While the veneer materials did not show any characteristic water absorption bands in the FTIR, the bonding cement showed a broad H(2) O/OH absorption band. The veneers transmitted between 11.5% and 43.7% of the incident Er:YAG energy with Emax transmitting twice the energy as EE at comparable thickn...
Reduction of Endotracheal Tube Biofilms Using Antimicrobial Photodynamic Therapy.
MB aPDT can effectively treat polymicrobial antibiotic resistant biofilms in an ET tube....
A comparative study on ocular damage induced by 1319nm laser radiation.
We determined and compared the retinal damage thresholds at this wavelength in three species with different axial lengths and retinal pigmentations. The corneal damage threshold was also determined for further comparative analysis. The retinal damage thresholds of albino rat, non-pigmented and pigme...
An intra-individual quantitative assessment of acute laser injury patterns in facial versus abdominal skin.
Clinical laser settings have traditionally been calibrated on abdominal skin to predict and anticipate patterns of injuries in facial skin. This experimental approach has limitations as facial skin and abdominal skin have differences that may influence the depth of laser injury....
Effect of pulsing in low-level light therapy.
Low level light (or laser) therapy (LLLT) is a rapidly growing modality used in physical therapy, chiropractic, sports medicine and increasingly in mainstream medicine. LLLT is used to increase wound healing and tissue regeneration, to relieve pain and inflammation, to prevent tissue death, to mitig...
