14 January 2014Orofacial hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia: high power diode laser in early and advanced lesion treatment
Hereditary Haemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) is a muco-cutaneous inherited disease. Symptoms are epistaxis,
visceral arterio-venous malformations, multiple muco-cutaneous telangiectasia with the risk of number increasing
enlargement, bleeding, and super-infection. The aim of this work is to show the dual Diode Laser efficacy in preventive
treatment of Early Lesions (EL < 2mm) and therapeutic treatment of Advanced Lesions (AL < 2mm). 21 patients
affected by HHT with 822 muco-cutaneous telangiectatic nodules have been treated in several sessions with local
anaesthesia and cooling of treated sites. EL preventive treatment consists of single Laser impulse (fibre 320) in ultrapulsed
mode (2 mm single point spot). AL therapeutic treatment consists of repeated Laser impulses in pulsed mode (on
200ms / off 400ms). According to the results, Diode Laser used in pulsed and ultra-pulsed mode is very effective as noninvasive treatment both in early and advanced oral and perioral telangiectasia.
