ConclusionTo our knowledge, this is the first study to report the outcomes of NYPH for non-resolving PMSHH in Saudi cases. In this small cases series, the procedure seems to be safe, effective, simple, cheap, and non-invasive treatment modality for this disorder that is conducted in the outpatient setting. We think it should be considered as a first option for cases of SHH covering the fovea due to various aetiologies.
ConclusionsLLLT is effective in alleviating the intensity and duration of pain experienced by patients after the engagement of alignment arch-wire. However, there is no specific indication for the usage of LLLT according to the amount of crowding.
AbstractThis committee opinion reviews the laser-based vaginal devices for treatment of genitourinary syndrome of menopause, vaginal laxity, and stress urinary incontinence. The United States Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning for unsubstantiated advertising and use of energy-based devices. Well-designed case –control studies are required to further investigate the potential benefits, harm, and efficacy of laser therapy in the treatment of genitourinary syndrome of menopause, vaginal laxity, and stress urinary incontinence. The therapeutic advantages of nonsurgical laser-based devices in urogynecology ...

Mucositis is a systemic inflammatory process which may affect the oral cavity to the anus due to antineoplastic therapies. The low level laser therapy (LLLT) has significant therapeutic properties, such as anti-inflamatory and analgesic effects in addition to modulation of celullar activity, which improve clinical response of mucositis.
In conclusion, these data indicate that LLLT might become a novel and useful tool in the treatment of several pathologies, including female reproductive disorders.
