Abstract
Sixty-six cases of hemangioma were treated with CO2 laser alone (22 cases as a control group), or CO2 laser supplemented with He-Ne laser (44 cases of the treated group). Optimum power dosage was first sought on normal volunteers. Arteriolar vasculature and lymphatics were blocked 3 - 5 times with procaine hydrochloride (5:1) to minimize local blood congestion. Results show that the healing rate of the treated group was significantly higher than that of the control group (X3 equals 3.92, P < 0.05). Eleven cases (50%) were complicated with exudation in the control as compared with 3 cases (6.8%) in the treated group (P < 0.01). Of the 18 cases completely cured in the control group, the number of treatments averaged at 11.4 times, while of the 39 cases completely cured in the treated group, the average number of treatments was 5.9 times, which is also statistically significant (P < 0.01). It is considered that CO2 laser supplemented with He-Ne laser is superior than CO2 laser alone for the treatment of hemangioma. Furthermore, it is also proposed that the supplement of copper and Chinese herbal medicines may prevent the incidence of recurrence. Laser was used for the treatment of hemangioma in our country during the 1980s. In foreign literature, there were several reports using Nd:YAG and copper vapor laser for the treatment of agniomasimplex and nevus flammeus. Ar+ laser agglomeration was commonly used for the treatment of angioma conjunctive in our country, but the use of CO2 laser for the treatment of angioma epiderma is not well documented. We wish to report the use of CO2 laser supplemented with He-Ne laser for the treatment of hemangioma in our hospital from April 1988 to December 1989.
