To evaluate the efficacy of Moxibustion in the treatment of Ulcerative Colitis, thus the scientific foundation for rational use of Moxibustion in clinical usage, in order to find admission...
To investigate the mechanism and effects of moxibustion on patients with ulcerative colitis.
This is a multicenter , double-blinded, double-dummy, randomized controlled clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy of moxibustion for osteoarthritis of the knee.
Background: Diabetic patients are frequently showed with foot ulceration as a common complication which increases to 20% in admission. Low-level laser therapy is used to control foot ulcer...
The purpose of this study is to observe the efficacy and safety of acupuncture and moxibustion for Crohn's disease and the regulation mechanism of intestinal microbiota and mucosal immunit...
Moxibustion, a form of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), is the burning of the herb moxa (Folium Artemisiae argyi or mugwort) over acupuncture points. It is often used in China to facilitate cephali...
In this Letter, we report for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, a micron-sized mid-infrared Fe2+:ZnSe laser based on a single microcrystal. Typical laser emissions centering at 4.24 μm a...
Purified frequency modulation (FM) is demonstrated in a standard middle-infrared quantum cascade laser by illuminating its front facet with two near-infrared (NIR) lasers. A 2 mW laser at 1550 nm is...
We report on, to the best of our knowledge, the first results of laser plasma wakefield acceleration driven by ultrashort mid-infrared (IR) laser pulses (λ=3.9 μm, 100 fs, 0.25 TW), which ena...
Spasticity is a common post-stroke complication, and it results in substantial deterioration in the quality of life of patients. Although potential positive effects of warm-needle moxibustion on spast...
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 energy such as radio frequency, infrared light, laser light, visible light, or acoustic energy to transfer information without the use of wires, over both short and long distances.
Measurement of the regional temperature of the body or an organ by infrared sensing devices, based on self-emanating infrared radiation.
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.
