Background and aims: It is generally thought that bleeding from a hemangioma is difficult to stop. With development of the long pulse dye laser (LPDL), it has become possible to treat hemangioma with a large blood vessel diameter. Thus, it is effective in treating infantile hemangioma and pyogenic granuloma. Materials and methods: Five patients who visited our hospital from July 2015 to July 2017 due to hemorrhagic hemangioma were treated using a flash lamp excitation pulse dye laser with parameters of 7 mm spot size, 3 msec pulse width, fluence 12-14J/cm2 , DCD 30 msec, and delay 30 msec...

Background and Aims: Peripheral nerve injury is one of the frequent complaints which is seen in the outpatient clinic of our medical institute. In previous studies we have reported on the benefits of low level laser therapy (LLLT) for central nerve system disorders, namely cerebrovascular accidents and cerebral palsy. The present study is a report on our experience of the effects of LLLT for peripheral nerve palsy. Materials and Methods: Over the past 5 years, 13 subjects visited the out-patient clinic with the chief complaint of radial nerve palsy caused by compression of the nerve through with abnormal positioning, and sleeping posture at night...

Background and aims: The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of CO2 laser irradiation in comparison with sandblasting (Sb), hydrofluoric acid (Hf) and silane coupling agent (Si) on shear bond strength (SBS) of resin cement to CAD/CAM ceramics bonded to dentin. Material and Methods: Forty-eight (CAD/CAM) ceramic discs were prepared and grouped by material, i.e. lithium disilicate (Emax CAD) and zirconia ceramic (Emax ZirCAD), distributed into four different groups: group A, lithium disilicate (Li) CO2 /HF/Si; group B, Li: HF/Si; group C, zirconia (Zr) CO2 /Sb/Si; group D, Zr: Sb/Si...

Background and Aim: Fractional CO2 lasers have been shown to provide improvement of vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA). The aim of the current study was to assess the early effect of a fractional CO2 laser system in treating postmenopausal women with clinical symptoms of VVA. Methods: 28 healthy post-menopausal women (mean age 60.1 ± 5.55 years) with VVA-related symptoms were treated with fractional CO2 laser 3 times, in 4-week intervals. At each study visit, VHIS score and VVA symptom severity were recorded...

Background and aims: Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a potential strategy to eliminate infection in the specific tissue. It uses lower-power laser to activate a photosensitizing agent. Studies have shown the benefit of PDT in the periodontal treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the periodontal changes after applying PDT as an adjunct to one visit full-mouth SRP (scaling and root planing) with subgingival piezoelectric ultrasonic scaler compared with full-mouth SRP alone. Methods: A split-mouth randomized clinical trial was designed...

Background and aims: Eradication failures are increasing with the increasing antibiotic resistance of Helicobacter pylori .We examined the basic effect of methylene blue (MB) with sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3 ) on H. pylori eradication using antimicrobial chemotherapy activated by light. Material and methods: When NaHCO3 was added to MB, the pH became basic. We smeared H. pylori on a medium with basic MB and irradiated it using a red light-emitting diode with a wavelength of 660 nm...

Background and Aim: Venous malformations (VMs) are slow-flow vascular anomalies composed of ectatic venous channels. Its management with Er,Cr:YSGG laser has been proven effective. In the present case a teenage patient reported with a bluish lesion, soft inconsistency on the dorsal aspect of tongue. The lesion was removed with Er, Cr: YSGG laser (2780 nm) with minimal anaesthetic infiltration. Results: Patient reported no postoperative pain. Clinical follow up after three months showed excellent results and uneventful healing...

The aim of this trial was to assess the efficacy of polarized polychromatic noncoherent light (Bioptron light) in the treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) in pregnancy. An uncontrolled experimental study was conducted in pregnant patients with CTS who visited our clinic from January 2006 to January 2010. Bioptron light (480-3400 nm; 95% polarization; 40 mW/cm2 ; and 2.4 J/cm2 ) was administered perpendicular to the carpal tunnel area. The irradiation time for each session was 6 min at an operating distance of 5-10 cm from the carpal tunnel area, twice each day, five days per week for 2 weeks...

Background and aims: Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) has been well-reported as a minimally invasive method to deal with varices of the lower extremities. The lasers used fall into two categories: pigment, i.e., hemoglobin-specific lasers in the visible and near-infrared (near-IR) wavebands and longer wavelength mid-infrared lasers where the chromophore is water. The fiber used to deliver the laser energy is also important, and not enough attention has been paid to this element of EVLA...

REVIEW
Kenichiro Kasai
Background and aims: The selective removal of tattoos and benign cutaneous pigmented lesions with laser energy evolved rapidly with the development of the nanosecond-domain Q-switched laser (ns-laser). Recently, however, a series of picosecond-domain lasers (ps-lasers) with pulsewidths less than 1 ns has become commercially available, enabling more efficient and faster removal of pigmented lesions in the field of dermatologic laser surgery. Rationale behind the ps-laser: The efficacy of the ns-laser depended on the theory of selective photothermolysis, whereby an extremely short pulse width was delivered less than the thermal relaxation time (TRT) of a target...

REVIEW
Shoichi D Takekawa
Background and aims: We devised a technique to treat peripheral arterial disease (PAD) with laser, i.e. percutaneous transluminal laser angioplasty (PTLA). Considerable good results were obtained with PTLA, but it is apparently considered obsolete as a technique to treat occlusive arterial disease of peripheral arteries, perhaps because of the development and improvement of stents and the ease of their use compared to the somewhat intricate technique required for PTLA. Although the author admits the usefulness of stents, they are foreign to a human body...

Aims: The appropriate management of Medication-Related OsteoNecrosis of the Jaw (MRONJ) is still a challenge for dentists and oral surgeons and in these last years high-technology instruments have been proposed at the different steps of interventions, also combined with promoters of tissue repair.The aim of this report is to show the advantages of a combined approach (laser and PRP) for the treatment of MRONJ. Methods: It is described the case of a patient positive for MRONJ observed at the Odontostomatology and Maxillo-Facial Surgery Unit of the Hospital of Piacenza where surgical approach was performed by using different devices: Er:YAG laser (2940 nm) to remove and vaporize necrotic hard tissue until bleeding bone; Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) to stimulate hard and soft tissue healing; diode laser (808 nm) to biostimulate the surgical site...

Chronic lower extremity ulcers (CLEUs) have a high prevalence and are difficult to treat due to their various aetiologies. The aim of this study is to evaluate the results achieved in treating CLEUs using an Erbium: YAG (Er:YAG) laser with RecoSMA technology. This laser emits thousands of microbeams of energy causing superficial epidermal ablation and a separation of dermal fibres due to a mechanical-acoustic and resonance effect. The evaluation of the results achieved was carried out by questionnaires completed by 18 patients enrolled in the study...
