Paper Abstract

Laser osteoperforation, previously studied in experiment in rabbits at treatment for acute purulent osteomyelitis (Privalov V. et.al., SPIE Proc., v.3565., pp. 72-79), was applied in clinic to 36 patients with chronic purulent osteomyelitis and to 6 patients (children) with acute haematogenic osteomyelitis. Diode lasers of 805 and 980 nm wavelength were used. There was achieved full recovery in all acute cases, and stable remission in chronic cases during all the observation period (1 - 2.5 years).
