Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a multifactorial disease, that cause visual impairment in premature children. The exact pathogenesis and etiology of ROP is unknown and genetic susceptibility is considered as risk factor. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) plays a major role in retinal neovascularization and subsequently retinal detachment. VEGF polymorphism is associated with proliferative ROP in some studies. We examined the possible association of the VEGF gene polymorphisms with ROP in preterm infants in south of Iran...

BACKGROUND: Twin to twin transfusion syndrome occurs in 15% of monochorionic twin pregnancies. Untreated, TTTS has been reported to have a mortality of nearly 100%. Two main therapies include serial amnioreduction and fetoscopic laser coagulation for the vascular anastomoses. OBJECTIVES: The aim of the project was to investigate the optimal diagnostic and therapeutic procedure in pregnancies complicated by TTTS. Additionally the study was supposed to compare non-invasive and invasive methods of treatment and to show antenatal and postnatal follow - up to 4 months of age...

This research evaluated the effect of multiple-wave lasertherapy on the healing process of surgical wounds based on in vitro models denominated stem-dermal equivalents. These human skin models were obtained from a co-culture of dermal cells and bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells. The experimental tests were carried out using a LED portable to multiple waves (operating at 660 nm and 810 nm) at different doses to induce photobiostimulation (10 to 70 Moreover, a photosensitizer drug was employed as a new advanced designed nanomaterial, being a nanoemulsion with biopolymers to obtain an efficient drug delivery system to release lipophilic compounds...

We investigate the effects of a novel bioactive material (Biosilicate(®)) and low-level laser therapy (LLLT), at 60 J/cm(2), on bone-fracture consolidation in osteoporotic rats. Forty female Wistar rats are submitted to the ovariectomy, to induce osteopenia. Eight weeks after the ovariectomy, the animals are randomly divided into four groups, with 10 animals each: bone defect control group; bone defect filled with Biosilicate group; bone defect irradiated with laser at 60 J/cm(2) group; bone defect filled with Biosilicate and irradiated with LLLT, at 60 J/cm(2) group...

UNLABELLED: Temporomandibular dysfunction is characterized by the presence of painful joint/muscular symptoms muscle in the face. The main justification for the use of lasers in laser therapy dysfunction is its analgesic effect, which was observed in most studies in the literature. AIM: We evaluated the effectiveness of laser therapy in the treatment of temporomandibular disorders. METHODS: 50 volunteers with temporomandibular disorders were divided into two groups (control and experimental) had amplitudes of movements of mouth opening, right and left laterality recorded before and after laser application...

Varicose veins are as old as Hippocrates. Varicose vein treatments come and go. Surgery for varicose vein disease is one of the commonest elective general surgical procedures. The history of varicose vein surgery has been traced. We note the first descriptions of varicose veins, and we particularly focus on the ligation of the saphenofemoral junction, stripping of the great saphenous veins, phlebectomy, and perforant vein surgery. We end with the rapid rise of minimally invasive procedures, such as foam sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation, and endovenous lasertherapy...

The cure without after-effect of an hemangioma is classic but sometimes the spontaneous involution, a premature surgical treatment or an evolutionary complication can be at the origin of a definitive after-effect. In these cases, the treatment of the hemangioma, often multidisciplinary, will be begun in a late way during the late childhood or the adolescence. Surgical excision of an excess tissue or of a wide scar, lipoaspiration of a fat remainder, lasertherapy and fat tissue reinjection are simple and mostly sufficient procedures...
