Paper Abstract

Laser osteoperforation method, initially developed for treatment of osteomyelitis, was successfully applied to 66 patients with osteal and osteoarticular panaritium. The procedure consisted in perforation of the affected phalanx with diode laser radiation (wavelength 970nm; average power 10-12W; pulse mode 100/50 ms), delivered through quartz monofiber. Additional laser induced thermotherapy (power 2-3W; continuous mode) was fulfilled for persistent fistulas. In comparison with conventional surgery, laser osteoperforation provided faster pain relieve, edema dissipation, wound and fistula closure; good functional results; decreasing of disability cases number.
