This study evaluates the efficacy of Nd:Yttrium Aluminum Garnet Laser (Nd:YAG) Treatment of Lichen sclerosus in comparison with topical corticosteroid treatment. Half of participants will ...
This study is being done to compare the effects, good and bad, of radiofrequency laser treatment and clobetasol proprionate .05% ointment on vulvar lichen sclerosus.
The study will examine the effects of fractional/pixel CO2 laser treatment in vaginal atrophy and in vulvar lichen sclerosus by means of histological and immuno-histochemical characterizat...
A randomised controlled trial of Lichen Sclerosus in a period of six months measuring Quality of Life and sexuality among women with Lichen Sclerosus.
This explorative investigation will assess the adhesion and tolerability of the Rivelin® plain patch when applied directly on lesions in subjects with Vulvar Lichen Sclerosus (VLS).
Lichen sclerosus is a chronic inflammatory dermatological condition with a predilection for the anogenital area.
The study group included eleven female patients aged 18-77 years with a diagnosis of lichen sclerosus. Basic therapy consisted in the application of clobetasol in the first month and then once a day f...
The flashlamp-pumped, solid-state, pulsed, mid-infrared, holmium:YAG laser (λ = 2120 nm) has been the clinical gold standard laser for lithotripsy for over the past two decades. However, while the ho...
An increasing number of consumer laser products are available to Canadians, many being purchased from online retailers. Of particular concern are high-powered, handheld laser devices. This study was c...
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).
Atrophy and shriveling of the SKIN of the VULVA that is characterized by the whitish LICHEN SCLEROSUS appearance, inflammation, and PRURITUS.
A chronic inflammatory mucocutaneous disease usually affecting the female genitalia (VULVAR LICHEN SCLEROSUS) and BALANITIS XEROTICA OBLITERANS in males. It is also called white spot disease and Csillag's disease.
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.
