Extensive cervicofacial venous malformations (VM) pose significant challenges to a patient's quality of life (altered breathing, dysphagia, dysarthria). Treatment options include: 1) Surgical debulking; 2) Sclerotherapy; 3) laser therapy; or 4) Combined modalities. Recent studies have demonstrated the importance of multimodality and multidisciplinary management of these patients. However, no studies have described combined single anesthetic laser and sclerotherapy treatment. We sought to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of combined Nd:YAG laser and sclerotherapy under the same anesthetic administration.

Bleomycin sclerotherapy has been shown to be a viable treatment for lymphatic malformations. However, its use for these lesions confined to the orbit is becoming increasingly documented in the literat...
Lymphangioma circumscriptum (LC) is a lymphatic malformation presenting with vesiculo-papules or warty lesions, resembling a "frog-spawn". Many treatment modalities have been described but random exci...
Widespread controversy exists regarding correct diagnosing nontuberculous mycobacterial cervicofacial (NTM) lymphadenitis. This study intends to gather the available evidence with respect to diagnosin...
The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of pretreatment with two different ablative laser modalities, a CO2 laser and an Er:YAG laser, and to assess the role of laser density in...

The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of skin anesthesia using fractional laser assisted delivery of articaine hydrochloride 40 mg/ml and epinephrine 10 µg/ml solution (AHES...
Capillary malformations (port-wine stains) consist of abnormally developed capillary blood vessels in the skin. To date, laser therapy is the only widely accepted treatment modality for ca...

A complex of related glycopeptide antibiotics from Streptomyces verticillus consisting of bleomycin A2 and B2. It inhibits DNA metabolism and is used as an antineoplastic, especially for solid tumors.
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).
The use of two or more chemicals simultaneously or sequentially to induce anesthesia. The drugs need not be in the same dosage form.
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.
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.
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
