Summary of "Transcanalicular laser-assisted dacryocystorhinostomy with diode laser."

This article compares the efficacy of transcanalicular laser assisted dacryocystorhinostomy (TL DCR) with conventional external dacryocystorhinostomy (Ex DCR). All patients were randomly divided into two groups - Group A included patients who underwent TL DCR and Group B included patients who underwent Ex DCR. 168 operations were done in a total of 163 patients; 79 patients in group A and 84 patients in group B. The overall success rate was 90.12% in group A and 95.40% in group B. The mean total surgical time was 17.41 min in group A and 49.49 min in group B. The duration of stay in hospital was about 3 hours for group A and about 48 hours for group B. Intra and post operative complications were more in group B than in group A. TL DCR can offer a minimally invasive technique with comparable results and better patient satisfaction than Ex DCR.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).

Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.

A surgical technique to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS of the EYE, such as MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. In this method, a flap of CORNEAL EPITHELIUM is created by exposure of the area to dilute alcohol. The flap is lifted and then replaced after laser ablation of the subepithelial CORNEA.

Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.

Fragmentation of CALCULI, notably urinary or biliary, by LASER.
