Paper Abstract

We studied the effects of the very low-power Gallium-Arsenic infrared semiconductor laser and low-power Helium-Neon laser irradiation, single or in combination, compared to the placebo and conventional therapy on the recovery of 118 female patients from our hospital with the diagnosis of chronic pelvic inflammatory disorders. Laser biostimulation therapy proved to be significantly more efficient as compared with placebo or conventional therapy. The most efficient of all kinds of irradiations was the combination between He-Ne and Ga-As (laserpuncture and scanning). After laser treatments we didn't find any significant local genital changes both at the bimanual examination (except provoked pain), and at the echographical examination. Soft and very low-power laser therapy can be a useful alternative to the conventional treatments for pelvic inflammatory diseases.
