Mihaela Antonina Calin, Toma Coman, Marian Romeo Calin. The effect of low level laser therapy on surgical wound healing. Reports in Physics, No. 3, P. 617-627, Vol 62, 2010.

Abstract: Surgical wounds are superficial or deep wounds on skin or mucous membranes due to a surgical intervention using a scalpel to cut through skin or mucosa and the underlying tissue. The wound treatment costs in terms of finance and time are relatively high; the complete wound healing lasts 3 weeks. To reduce this period of healing of surgical wound and avoid complications, therapeutic methods and drug are used in postoperative period. One of these methods is Low Level Laser Therapy. This method has been used for treatment of wounds for over two decades in many medical facilities of the world. However, despite such wide clinical usage, there is still controversy regarding the efficacy of Low Level Laser Therapy in the treatment of wounds. Many laser systems, different laser parameters and irradiation conditions, and a great variety of treatment protocols lead to these conclusions. The goal of this paper is to present our evaluation of Low Level Laser Therapy role in surgical aseptic wound management based on the hematological exam, histological exam and biochemical blood analysis in rabbits using our laser system SCL-TR (INOE 2000).

Keywords: wound, laser therapy, hematologic exem, histologic exem, biochemical blood analysis
