Glaucoma is the second cause of blindness worldwide. Laser peripheral iridoplasty (LPI) is a simple and effective treatment for angle closure glaucoma. LPI can widen or reopen an existing angle close or angle adhesion in order to reduce the risk of attack of the angle closure glaucoma. However, there are very little research on the laser site, laser wavelengths, laser energy and laser spot intervals. The purpose of this study is to determine the optimum laser site of LPI.
Argon laser trabeculoplasty (ALT) with 100 ms pulses is an effective therapy for lowering intraocular pressure (IOP). Similar reductions in IOP have been achieved using ns (SLT) and microsecond (MLT) pulses, which produce less thermal damage to trabecular meshwork (TM). Lack of clinically visible changes may make the accurate alignment of subsequent pulses difficult. We describe a novel technique - Patterned Laser Trabeculoplasty (PLT) using the PASCAL Photocoagulator system, a...
In patients with an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia), is treatment using photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP 120 Watt) as effective and cost-effective as the standard treatment of transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP)? A higher-power (120W) laser system has recently been approved by Health Canada for the treatment of an enlarged prostate. This system, which uses laser energy to vaporize the prostate tissue, will be compared with the curren...

This study will use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound to examine changes in tongue volume and blood circulation during tongue exercises that require the use of different tongue muscle movements and contractions. More information on the structure and function of the human tongue is needed to develop better treatments for people with certain diseases affecting speech and swallowing. Normal volunteers between 21 and 80 years old who live in the metropolitan Washing...
Rationale: Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second cause of cancer-related deaths for men. The standard surgical treatment for localised prostate cancer is radical prostatectomy. Possible side effects of this treatment are incontinence and erectile dysfunction and this is related to the whole-gland resection. A focal treatment with fewer side effects is desired for patients with only a small focus of PCa. For this purpose, focal laser ablation is feasible. Current focal laser ablat...
This is a prospective observational study of women undergoing vulvar and/or vaginal treatment with the fractional carbon dioxide (fCO2) laser for various urogenital symptoms.
Laser photocoagulation has become the treatment of choice in PDR. Laser photocoagulation has become the treatment of choice in TMD. The aim is to destroy a substantial portion of the peripheral retina in order to reduce the angiogenic stimulus (decrease the difference between oxygen demand and the administration). Their effectiveness is determined by the extent of destruction of the retina (2.4).
The purpose of this research project is to study the effect of non-ablative (non-cutting) laser therapy, a technique that uses laser energy to try to improve the appearance of the skin. This type of laser treatment creates changes in a layer of the skin called the dermis without causing an open wound in the skin. The use of non-ablative laser therapy, together with application of a photo-sensitizer (substance that makes the skin more sensitive to light), may improve the appear...
This study will fill a scientific gap in the current knowledge providing data for evaluation of the palatal augmentation prosthesis as a therapeutic modality in a robust scientific randomized prospective clinical trial. Positive outcomes from this study have the potential to dramatically alter the most common morbidity of oral cancer therapy, namely speech and swallowing function in a population of patients with T1/T2 tumors of the tongue who are not currently routinely recomme...
DIAMONDS is a Randomised Controlled Clinical Trial that is being carried out in the UK to determine the clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of micropulse laser, compared with standard laser, for the treatment of diabetic macular oedema.
Confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE) is a newly endoscopic device that enables microscopic view of the digestive tract. The purpose of this study is to determine if confocal laser endomicroscopy can improve detection of digestive disease include inflammation, dysplasia, and early cancer, and if confocal laser endomicroscopy has competitive advantage, compared with other device such as Narrow Band Imaging and Autofluoresecence Imaging.
The purpose of the study is to compare the effectiveness and safety profile of ExPress implantation versus partial deep sclerectomy combined with ExPress implantation with simultaneously phacoemulsification.
The goal of this research project is to develop a new system that uses lasers to provide 3-dimensional (3-D) images of the cervical spine (the seven spinal bones in the neck) in a moving person. Doctors and researchers could use this system to examine people with spinal disorders and to learn more about how the spine works. The laser technique would be better than existing imaging methods because it would provide 3-D views of the cervical spine and would not expose patients to ...
The accuracy of real-time histology prediction (hyperplastic vs. adenomas) of colonic polyps using white light high-definition endoscopes is suboptimal. Blue laser imaging (BLI) is a new system for image-enhanced endoscopy using laser light, that is incorporated in the last generation Fuji high- definition videocolonscopes ELUXEO. Blue laser imaging (BLI) utilizes two monochromatic lasers instead of xenon light: a 410 nm laser visualizes vascular microarchitecture, similar to n...
Upper airway stimulation (UAS) is an effective surgical alternative for patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) who fail continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. This stimulation could lead to alterations in tongue strength and fatigability which could alter treatment outcome. The aim of the study is to investigate if UAS alters tongue strength and fatigability.
