OBJECTIVE To present results from a clinical series of patients who underwent office-based laser nasal septal cartilage reshaping. DESIGN Nonrandomized prospective clinical trial. SETTING Outpatient university-based otolaryngology clinic. PATIENTS One hundred ten patients aged 11 to 66 years with symptomatic nasal obstruction due to septal deviation.(More)
The effects of coherent He-Ne laser and non-coherent light-emitting diode radiation on rat skin wound healing and functional activity of wound excudate leukocytes were compared. A comparative pathomorphological analysis showed that the He-Ne laser and light-emitting diode irradiation stimulated the transition of the inflammatory phase of the wound healing(More)
Intermittent daily exposures (60 s) to NO-containing gas flow (NO dose of 500 ppm) generated by air-plasma unit "Plason" improves healing of skin wounds in rats. The gas flow treatment shortened the recovery time of both aseptic and purulent wounds (300 mm2 area) by nearly a third. The treatment allows to achieve a marked improvement in the histological,(More)
AIM To assess efficiency of magnerot, magnesium orotate, in patients with idiopathic mitral prolapse (IMP). MATERIAL AND METHODS 84 patients with IMP were randomized to the study group (43 patients) and control group (41 patients). Patients of the study group received magnerot tablets (Germany) containing 500 mg of magnesium orotate (daily dose 3000 mg)(More)
A model of osteochondral intra-articular defect in rats is presented. During spontaneous healing, the stage of formation of granulation tissue is followed by its replacement with bone and fibrous tissue. Chondroinductive properties of collagen 1 sponge used for defect filling manifested in the formation of fibrous cartilage with fields of hyaline cartilage.(More)
The effects of non-ablative infrared (IR) laser treatment of collagenous tissue have been commonly interpreted in terms of collagen denaturation spread over the laser-heated tissue area. In this work, the existing model is refined to account for the recently reported laser-treated tissue heterogeneity and complex collagen degradation pattern using(More)
The beneficial effect of NO-donors, dinitrosyl-iron complexes with cysteine or glutathione on the healing of skin wound in rats was demonstrated by hystological and hystochemical methods: dinitrosyl-iron complexes accelerated efficiently repair processes in wound tissue after a twofold injection of an aqueous solution of a dinitrosyl-iron complex into wound(More)
Dynamics of nucleic acid synthesis was studied in granulation tissue, harvested within 2-11 days after an injury of rats with full-layer skin wounds, simultaneously with evaluation of the morphometric patterns of the tissue. Synthesis of nuclear DNA exhibited a wave-shaped dynamics. The intervals between the maximal values of the DNA synthesis constituted 3(More)
