To evaluate the feasibility and safety of photoselective vaporization for prostate (PVP) with a 180-W XPS Greenlight laser as day surgery in the Chinese population. We retrospectively collected 114 cases undergoing the day surgery PVP and 198 cases undergoing conventional inpatient surgery PVP from April 2017 to March 2020. All patients’ data including baseline characteristics, peri-operative data, post-operative outcomes, and complications were recorded and evaluated. The day-surgery procedures...
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of photobiomodulation (low-level laser therapy (LLLT)) and aquatic exercise on the expression of genes related to muscle regeneration in rats. Wistar rats were divided into five groups: control group (n = 15), non-treated injury group (n = 15), injury+LLLT group (n = 15), injury+aquatic exercise group (n = 15), and injury+LLLT+aquatic exercise group (n = 15). Cryoinjury was performed on the belly of the tibialis anterior (TA) muscle. LLLT ...

Photobiomodulation-based (PBM-based) therapies show promising results in mucositis and dermatitis treatment by stimulating wound healing mechanisms such as cell proliferation and migration. The aim of the present study is to investigate the in vitro effects of CareMin650 on the proliferation and migration of two different types of cells, namely cancer and non-cancer cells, with or without X-ray radiation. Study design used PBM through a combination of 0-3-6 J/cm2 doses-with or without X-ray radi...
Photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) has been indicated for enforcement on healing skin wounds. This study evaluated the effects of PBMT on the healing of skin wounds during the proliferation phase in rats with a hypoproteic diet. Rats were randomized to one of the following groups (n = 10 per group): (i) injured normoproteic (25% protein) not subjected to PBMT; (ii) injured normoproteic who received PBMT; (iii) injured hypoproteic (8% protein) not subjected to PBMT; and (iv) injured hypoproteic wh...

Bacterial biofilms are often found in chronically infected wounds. Biofilms protect bacteria from antibiotics and impair wound healing. Surgical debridement is often needed to remove the biofilm from an infected wound. Laser-generated shockwave (LGS) treatment is a novel tissue-sparing treatment for biofilm disruption. Previous studies have demonstrated that LGS is effective in disrupting biofilms in vitro. In this study, we aim to determine the safety threshold of the LGS technology in an in vi...
Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) is a valid treatment option to relieve bladder outlet obstruction in patients with large prostate volumes (PV). Its efficacy, tolerability, and safety are comparable to the ones of other laser treatments of the prostate and resection techniques. However, safety and efficacy of HoLEP have not been compared between patients with and without preoperative urinary retention. We included 350 patients (mean age 71.2 years) who had undergone HoLEP due to...

To evaluate the effect of Er:YAG laser conditioning of a glass-infiltrated alumina-based zirconia-reinforced ceramic on its flexural strength and on bonding to a resin cement. Sixteen blocks (5 × 5 × 4 mm) and 50 discs (O 12 mm, 1 mm thickness) of In-Ceram Zirconia (ICZ) obtained from CAD-CAM blocks were infiltrated with glass. For the microtensile bond strength (μTBS) test, all blocks were treated with aluminum oxide (AOX) and divided into 4 groups (n = 4): G1 (AOX), no combined surface treatme...

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is clinically used to remove early gastric cancer in stomach. The aim of the current study is to examine a therapeutic capacity of pulsed Ho:YAG laser for the development of laser-assisted ESD under various surgical parameters. Ex vivo porcine stomach tissue was ablated with 1-J Ho:YAG pulses at 10 Hz at different number of treatments (NT = 1, 2, and 3) and treatment speeds (TS = 0.5, 1, and 2 mm/s) without and with saline injection. Regardless of saline in...

The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy of fractional ablative carbon dioxide laser (AFXL) surgery in patients with pediatric hand scars. This study enrolled hand scar patients who received treatment in our hospital between May 2018 and April 2019. Patients were assigned to undergo AFXL surgery based on their personal intents and condition, whereas the fractional laser was used for stiffness and abnormal texture. Outcomes were as follows: hand function was evaluated using the Mi...

Vitiligo is a chronic acquired disease. Various therapeutic strategies are available but with variable degrees of success. Fractional CO2 laser is claimed to be effective in the treatment of refractory non-segmental vitiligo. Platelet-rich plasma may help in stimulation of the proliferation of melanocytes and repigmentation within vitiliginous patches.Our aim was to evaluate and compare the efficacy and safety of fractional CO2 laser, PRP, and NB-UVB either alone or in combination in the treatme...
