Efficacy of Different Densities of Fractional Carbon Dioxide in Treatment of Post Burn Scars

This study aims to compare effectiveness of different densities of carbon dioxide fractional laser in the treatment of postburn scar.

Laser Therapy for Pediatric Burn Scars

A new era of outcomes for pediatric burn patients has begun as burn care continues to improve. Unfortunately, complete restoration of burn-injured skin may be limited by the development of...

Comparison of Lasers in the Treatment of Scars

The purpose of this study is to compare the 1550-nm non-ablative Fraxel laser (referred to as Fraxel Laser in this application) to the ablative 10,600-nm carbon dioxide fractional laser (r...

Fractional Laser Assisted Steroid Therapy vs Intralesional Steroids in the Treatment of Keloids

The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser therapy immediately followed by intralesional steroid therapy against intralesional steroid the...

Carbon Dioxide Fractional Laser in Treating Participants With Stage 0-III Hormone Receptor-Positive Breast Cancer With Vulvovaginal Atrophy

This phase II trial studies how well carbon dioxide fractional (CO2RE) laser works in treating participants with stage 0-III hormone receptor-positive breast cancer with vulvovaginal atrop...

Fractional Carbon Dioxide Laser in Patients with Skin Phototypes III to VI and Facial Burn Sequelae: 1-Year Follow-Up.

Fractional carbon dioxide laser treatment in postburn scars is safe and effective, but high rates of hypochromia (35 percent) have been described in patients with skin phototypes V and VI after 2 mont...

Impact of Fractional Ablative Carbon Dioxide Laser on the Treatment of Rhinophyma.

Rhinophyma results in nasal deformity, which may lead to significant distress, embarrassment, social isolation, and low self-esteem. Fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser treatment is a simple, non-in...

Efficacy of fractional carbon dioxide laser versus microneedling in the treatment of striae distensae.

Fractional photothermolysis is creation of microscopic thermal zones of controlled depth, width and density. Microneedling is a simple treatment modality to reduce striae distensae.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An enzyme with high affinity for carbon dioxide. It catalyzes irreversibly the formation of oxaloacetate from phosphoenolpyruvate and carbon dioxide. This fixation of carbon dioxide in several bacteria and some plants is the first step in the biosynthesis of glucose. EC

A family of zinc-containing enzymes that catalyze the reversible hydration of carbon dioxide. They play an important role in the transport of CARBON DIOXIDE from the tissues to the LUNG. EC

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).

Catalyzes the decarboxylation of an alpha keto acid to an aldehyde and carbon dioxide. Thiamine pyrophosphate is an essential cofactor. In lower organisms, which ferment glucose to ethanol and carbon dioxide, the enzyme irreversibly decarboxylates pyruvate to acetaldehyde. EC

A copper protein that catalyzes the formation of 2 moles of 3-phosphoglycerate from ribulose 1,5-biphosphate in the presence of carbon dioxide. It utilizes oxygen instead of carbon dioxide to form 2-phosphoglycollate and 3-phosphoglycerate. EC
