Evaluation of combined treatment with long-pulsed neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet laser and potassium hydroxide for the treatment of recalcitrant wart: a prospective comparative study.

This study aimed to evaluate combined treatment with LP Nd:YAG laser and KoH for the treatment of recalcitrant wart. Methods: This study included 132 lesions from 38 patients. Long-pulsed (LP) Nd:YAG laser was applied to 66 lesions with daily 10% KOH application at night, and the remaining 66 lesions underwent LP Nd:YAG laser therapy only. Results: Both groups showed statistically significant regressions in the size of the lesions at the end of the fifth session compared with those present at the onset of therapy (p

ConclusionsMOCA is safe and effective in treating chronic venous ulcers and appears to provide comparable results to methods that rely on thermal ablation. Younger age and use of MOCA favored wound healing. MOCA was an independent predictor of ulcer healing. Randomized studies are necessary to further support our findings.

This study compared the efficacy of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) versus laser acupuncture therapy (LAT) in patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMDs). In this randomized, double-blind clinical trial, 45 TMD patients were randomly divided into three groups. In group 1 (LLLT), a GaAlAs laser was applied on painful masticatory muscles and TMJs (810  nm, 200 mW, 30 s per point, Gaussian beam, spot size 0.28 cm2, 21  J/cm2) two times a week for 5  weeks. In group 2 (LAT), the laser was emitted bilaterally on acupuncture points (ST6, ST7, LI4) with the same settings as the LLLT group. Group ...

AbstractDuring the injection of local anesthesia in pediatric dental procedures, from the injection time until the elimination of tissue anesthesia, inevitable problems were reported. According to the encouraging results of previous studies addressing the positive effects of laser therapy on increasing the microcirculation, we aimed to investigate the clinical effect of photobiomodulation therapy on the reversal of soft tissue anesthesia in children. Using a split-mouth design, 34 children aged 4 to 8  years old, candidate for receiving local infiltration injection at both right and left side in mandible, were enrolle...

Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the effects of fractional CO2 laser therapy, promestriene, and vaginal lubricants on genitourinary syndrome treatment and sexual function in postmenopausal women. Methods: We performed a randomized clinical trial including 72 postmenopausal women over the age of 50 years. The women were randomized into three intervention groups to receive one of the following treatments: three sessions of intravaginal fractional CO2 laser therapy; 10 mg of intravaginal promestriene cream 3 times a week; and vaginal lubricant application alone. Vaginal maturation, Vaginal Health Index (...

Conclusions: This study showed a partial progress in respect of the methodological quality of the Clinical practice Guidelines. Several AGREE II domains demonstrated low scores, particularly the "applicability" and "monitoring and auditing criteria" are the domains most susceptible to amendments in future. Implications for rehabilitation Clinicians should be aware that among recently published/updated clinical practice guidelines for the management of chronic low back pain in primary care only few were deemed to have high quality. Increasing evidence suggests the efficacy for self-management to improve ...
