Paper Abstract

The aim of the present investigation was to assess histologically the effect of LLLT (λ830nm, Thera Lase, DMC, Sao Carlos, SP, Brazil, 40mW, CW, spot size 0.60mm, 16J/cm2 per session) on the repair of surgical defects created in the femur of the Wistar Albinus rat. The defects were filled to lyophilized organic bovine bone associated or not to GTR (decalcified cortical osseous membrane). Surgical bone defects were created in 42 animals divided into five groups: Group I (control - 6 animals); Group II (organic bovine bone - 9 animals); Group III (organic bovine bone + LLLT - 9 animals); Group IV (organic bovine bone + decalcified cortical osseous membrane - 9 animals); Group V (organic bovine bone + decalcified cortical osseous membrane + Laser - 9 animals). The animals on the irradiated groups received 16J/cm2 per session divided into four points around the defect (4J/cm2) being the first irradiation immediately after surgery and repeated seven times at every 48h. The animals were humanely killed after 15, 21 and 30 days. The results of the present investigation showed histological evidence of improved amount of collagen fibers at early stages of the bone healing (15 days) and increased amount of well organized bone trabeculae at the end of the experimental period (30 days) on irradiated animals compared to non irradiated ones. It is concluded that a positive biomodulative effect on the healing process of one defect associated or not to the use of organic lyophilized bone and biological bovine membrane on the femur of the rat.
