Paper Abstract

Intravascular Low Level He-Ne Laser Irradiation Therapy (ILLLI) is characterized by its considerable biologic and clinical effects. In our hospital, the therapy used to treat 149 patients with traumatic pain. 67 of which were cases with closed fractures; 49 cases with compound injures and postoperative pain; 23 cases with serious soft tissue injuries; 7 cases with traumatic pulmonary edema and 3 other cases. The pains were classified, according to the standards by the WHO, as Degree II of 60 cases and as Degree III of 89 cases. The therapeutic procedure is adopted as follows: Set the ILLLI therapeutic machine at 10 mw of output power with the laser probe inserted into the forearm vein. Each therapeutic course lasts 10 days with one therapy each day lasting 40 minutes. The outcome reveals that the local pain and swelling considerably decreased or disappeared after 9 times of the therapy for the 149 patients resulting in negative intaking of painkillers. The total effective rate counts to 100%, with 91 cases of significant effectiveness (61%) and 58cases of ensured effectiveness (39%). It can be concluded that the ILLLI therapy ensures a safe and reliable effectiveness, shortens the trauma healing process and the therapeutic period without any side effect. ILLLI may be considered a new method to treat traumatic pain. Key words: the Intravascular Low Level He-Ne Laser Irradiation therapy, traumatic pain.
