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 sample will be divided into two groups:- - Control group which will include 60 adult individuals between 18 and 35 years old who have BMI between 19 and 25, not complaining of any thig...
Laser-assisted intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) has been suggested as a more effective alterative to conventional ICSI when this method of insemination is indicated for patients und...
A defect in the hatching stage is considered an important cause of implantation failure. Therefore, assisted hatching (AH), which involves artificial disruption of the zona pellucida, has ...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of fractionated ablative 10,600nm CO2 laser assisted delivery of 2% minoxidil solution in the treatment of MPHL. In this ...
Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) has been previously used for postoperative flap thinning. Although it had been reported that UAL causes less damage to the vessels, the simultaneous use of UAL wi...
The study aims to compare the impact of non-mechanical excimer laser-assisted (EXCIMER) and femtosecond laser-assisted (FEMTO) trephinations on graft endothelial cell density (ECD) and graft thickness...
In recent years, there was a rise in ocular injuries secondary to cosmetic laser-assisted hair removal.
The purpose of our study is to compare the predictive accuracy of femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery with the results of conventional cataract surgery. This prospective study included 83 eyes...
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...
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 surgical technique to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS of the EYE, such as MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. In this method, a flap of CORNEAL EPITHELIUM is created by exposure of the area to dilute alcohol. The flap is lifted and then replaced after laser ablation of the subepithelial CORNEA.
A mass spectrometric technique that is used for the analysis of large biomolecules. Analyte molecules are embedded in an excess matrix of small organic molecules that show a high resonant absorption at the laser wavelength used. The matrix absorbs the laser energy, thus inducing a soft disintegration of the sample-matrix mixture into free (gas phase) matrix and analyte molecules and molecular ions. In general, only molecular ions of the analyte molecules are produced, and almost no fragmentation occurs. This makes the method well suited for molecular weight determinations and mixture analysis.
Somatosensory evoked potentials generated through the application of HEAT to the SKIN with a LASER. They are often used clinically to assess the function of the central nociceptive system and in diagnosing NOCICEPTIVE PAIN.
