3421. The safety and effectiveness of single-pass erbium:YAG laser in the treatment of mild to moderate photodamage. (Abstract)

was given over the entire face with two to three passes over the perioral and periorbital regions. Patients were evaluated for improvement of pigmentary irregularities, skin texture, and fine wrinkles. All side effects were recorded at follow-up visits. Two lasers were used, Sciton and Cynosure CO3, under local anesthesia.There was a 58% reduction in pigment irregularities and a 54% improvement in skin texture. There was minimal improvement in fine wrinkles with one pass. Two and three passes resulted (...) in a 50% reduction in wrinkles. The procedure was minimally painful. Side effects included 3 to 5 days of erythema and edema. Patients returned to work within 3 days on average. There were no infections. Patient satisfaction with the procedure was rated as very good. There was no difference in efficacy or adverse effects with either laser.One-pass short-pulse erbium:YAG laser in treating photodamage of the face and neck is safe and effective. There are minimal side effects and patients heal within 3

anaesthetic. Two children were Fitzpatrick skin type II, and one child was skin type VI. Treatment was performed at 4-9-monthly intervals. The procedure achieved significant lightening and thinning in all three cases, without scarring or dyspigmentation. One child developed herpes simplex infection in the treated area on one occasion, which was managed with oral aciclovir, and did not lead to scarring or preclude further treatment. We conclude that Er:YAG laser resurfacing is effective for CMN, even (...) Er:YAG laser resurfacing for inoperable medium-sized facial congenital melanocytic naevi in children. Congenital melanocytic naevi (CMN) can cause significant psychosocial morbidity, especially if they are in visually exposed areas. The preferred treatment is surgical excision, though not all lesions are amenable to this because anatomical location may preclude aesthetic and functional reconstruction. Three children with inoperable facial CMN were treated with Er:YAG resurfacing under general

3425. Histologic effects of laser-assisted topical anesthesia in a porcine model. (Abstract)

Histologic effects of laser-assisted topical anesthesia in a porcine model. A handheld laser device that removes the stratum corneum, the major barrier to transdermal absorption, has recently been approved to assist with topical anesthesia before painful procedures such as intravenous cannulation. The authors assessed the cutaneous histomorphologic effects of the laser device and the ability of the laser-treated skin to resist infection in a porcine model.This was a blinded, randomized animal (...) also focal areas of vacuolar alteration of the basal one third of the epidermis. There was no evidence of any damage to the basement membrane or the underlying dermis. At three days, the epidermis had healed and there was evidence of epidermal hyperplasia and hyperkeratosis that was completely resolved by 14 days. There were no infections and no scarring. Sham laser had no histomorphologic effects on the skin. There was no bacterial growth from all sham laser-treated wounds challenged with bacteria

3428. Rubbing test responses of the skin to man-made mineral fibres of different diameters. (Abstract)

Rubbing test responses of the skin to man-made mineral fibres of different diameters. The irritant potency of 5 types of insulation wools (2 types of rockwool and 3 types of glasswool) were studied on the basis of their differences in diameter by a standardized rubbing test. Assessment was done by laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF) and erythema scores. Insulation wools show a wide distribution of the diameter around the mean. Of the rockwool material, 30% consisted of small grains, called "shot (...) ". The control test site did not change over time; thus, the rubbing procedure itself does not seem to contribute to the skin reactions. All fibre types proved to be irritant to the skin. The irritant reactions did not correspond with the mean diameter, although the fibre type with the smallest diameter was the least irritant and the fibre type with the largest diameter the strongest. The presence of "shot" had a significant effect on the LDF responses. "Shot" and the distribution around the mean diameter

Adaptive skin blood flow increases during hip-down lying in elderly women. Pressure ulcer development due to unrelieved pressure during extended cardiovascular, orthopedic, and other procedures is an important clinical problem. Because blood flow changes within pressure-loaded tissue affect the skin breakdown process, the relative effects of 2 support surface strategies on trochanter skin blood flow were investigated.Skin blood perfusion was assessed by laser Doppler methods during 1 hour

Before medication withdrawal and 2, 4, 12 and 24 weeks thereafter, the following measurements were made: clinic blood pressure, home blood pressure (three times per week, morning and evening) and skin blood flow response to a 5 min forearm arterial occlusion (using laser Doppler flowmetry). The patients were asked to perform an ambulatory blood pressure recording at any time if home blood pressure was > or =160/95 mmHg on two consecutive days (...) , and treatment was initiated again, after determination of the skin hyperemic response, if daytime ambulatory blood pressure was > or =140/90 mmHg. The same studies were performed in 20 additional hypertensive individuals in whom antihypertensive treatment was not withdrawn (group B). The allocation of patients to groups A and B was random.The data fom 18 patients in group A who adhered strictly to the procedure were available for analysis. Seven of them had to start treatment again within the first 4 weeks

3431. What is nonablative photorejuvenation of human skin? Full Text available with Trip Pro

What is nonablative photorejuvenation of human skin? Nonablative photorejuvenation has become an integral procedure in the emerging discipline of laser dermatologic surgery. The objective is to confine selectively, without any epidermal damage, thermal injury to the papillary, and upper reticular dermis leading to fibroblast activation and synthesis of new collagen and extracellular matrix material. The procedure results in minimal patient morbidity, no interference with lifestyle, and a low (...) risk of complications, while providing a satisfying degree of rhytides reduction. Multiple devices have been studied and marketed for nonablative photorejuvenation of human skin. However, currently, nonablative photorejuvenation should not be considered an alternative to laser skin resurfacing. The skin surface is not removed or modified. What really occurs may be more accurately referred to as dermal "remodeling" or "toning" as a wound healing response is initiated and collagen regenerated

Biliary Surgery Via Minilaparotomy — A Limited Procedure for Biliary Lithiasis Cholelithiasis until now has been treated using solvents, lithotripsy via a biliary endoscope, laser or shock wave lithotripsy, and laparoscopic cholecystectomy. I have developed a new surgical treatment for cholelithiasis in which a cholecystectomy is performed through a minilaparotomy. This paper presents this new technique and discusses the principles of surgery for cholelithiasis using this technique (...) . This procedure is performed by a 2 to 3 cm subcostal skin incision in the right hypochondrium. More than 400 patients were treated by this technique. This procedure is not different in terms of blood loss or operation time from conventional methods, and no significant complications have occurred. Intraoperative X-ray examination is performed routinely because of easy insertion of a tube from the cystic duct into the bile duct. Reduction of the length of the incision greatly facilitates postoperative recovery

3433. Changes in skin blood flow and skin sympathetic nerve activity in response to manual acupuncture stimulation in humans. (Abstract)

Changes in skin blood flow and skin sympathetic nerve activity in response to manual acupuncture stimulation in humans. To determine the effects of manual acupuncture stimulation (MAS) on skin sympathetic nerve activity (SSNA), SSNA and skin blood flow (SBF) were measured during a resting period and during MAS. Twelve healthy male subjects were divided into an acupuncture group (n = 7) and a control group (n = 5). SSNA was recorded from the left median nerve at the elbow using microneurography (...) , while SBF was recorded using laser Doppler flowmeter. In the acupuncture group, MAS was delivered to LI 4 point in the right thenar muscle. The acupuncture needle was retained for 2 minutes before being removed. SSNA and SBF recordings were performed for a total of 12 minutes, from 5 minutes prior to MAS until the end of the trial. In the control group, the 2-minute period of acupuncture was replaced by 2 minutes of rest. During the first minute of MAS, we observed an increase in SSNA accompanied
