Paper Abstract

A Coherent CR599 Argon laser pumped continuous wave tunable dye laser emitting at 577 nm has been used in the treatment of 100 patients with port wine stains. This laser produced a lightening of the port wine stain in 80% of patients treated with a low incidence of adverse effects. These results confirm the role of this laser as a treatment of port wine stains.
