Acupuncture and related interventions for the treatment of symptoms associated with carpal tunnel syndrome.

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a compressive neuropathic disorder at the level of the wrist. Acupuncture and other methods that stimulate acupuncture points, such as electroacupuncture, auricular acu...

Carpal tunnel syndrome and ATTR-amyloidosis.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common compression syndrome of a peripheral nerve. It mostly affects patients older than 50 years. One cause for a carpal tunnel syndrome is transthyretin (ATTR) amy...

Pure-three-level Yb:GdCOB CW laser at 976  nm.

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...

Clinical evaluation and in-vivo analysis of the performance of a fractional infrared 1550 nm laser system for skin rejuvenation.

This study was done to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of a novel fractional 1550 nm laser device with a rolling mechanism (FRAX1550 Ellipse Medical, Horsholm, Denmark).

Physical ergonomic risk factors of carpal tunnel syndrome among rubber tappers.

This study evaluated physical ergonomic risk factors associated with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) among rubber tappers in Thailand. The Boston Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Questionnaire and Phalen's test an...

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).

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.

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.

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

Techniques using a laser to cut away and harvest a specific cell or cluster of cells from a tissue section while viewing it under the microscope.
