Abstract
A few new low invasive fiber laser technologies for treatment of 1) capillary malformations (port-wine stains), 2) venous, arterial, and arteriovenous malformations, 3) lymphatic malformations of 3 types: micro, small and large-cystic lymphangiomas are presented in this work. There were applied 1.56 μm laser distant photocoagulation, 1.56 μm laser endovascular thermotherapy, 1.9 μm laser instant ablation, 1.9 μm laser interstitial thermotherapy, and 1.9 μm laser excision. The technologies were applied to about 300 patients. Good clinical and esthetic results have been achieved in great majority cases.
