The study hypothesis is a improved muscle fatigue resistance induced by low-level laser therapy applied between sets of intense exercises.
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effects of one session of aerobic exercise associated with low level laser therapy in lipolytic activity, lipid profile and inflammator...
There are two specific aims for this study. Aim 1 is to test whether low-level laser therapy (LLLT) can enhance the efficacy of fear extinction training in the modification of pathological...
The purpose of this research study is to determine if treatment with Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is effective in treating the pain, numbness or tingling patients are experiencing follo...
The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of low-level laser on pain, occlusal contacts, mandibular movements and electromyography activity in the masseter and temporal muscles in ...
We present what is, to the best of our knowledge, the first pure-three-level Yb:CaGdO(BO) (Yb:GdCOB) laser emitting at 976 nm based on the F2-F2 transition, generally used for a quasi-three-level emi...
A 10 W level 976 nm single-frequency linearly polarized laser source was demonstrated with a two-stage all-fiber amplifier configuration. The continuous-wave output power of 10.1 W was obtained fro...
The aim of this study was to determine the optimum operating parameters (pulse duration, energy levels, and application time) to promote induction of osteoblast and fibroblast cell proliferation and t...
A frequency matching Brillouin amplification in high-power solid-state laser systems is proposed. The energy extraction efficiency could be maintained at a high level in a non-collinear Brillouin ampl...
We report a simply designed gain-switched all-fiber laser emitting a maximum average output power of 11.2 W at 2.826 µm. The corresponding extracted pulse energy is 80 µJ at a pulse duration of 1...
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.
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 method of non-invasive, continuous measurement of MICROCIRCULATION. The technique is based on the values of the DOPPLER EFFECT of low-power laser light scattered randomly by static structures and moving tissue particulates.
Fragmentation of CALCULI, notably urinary or biliary, by LASER.
