The aim of this study was to test, between two bouts of exercise, the effects of light-emitting diode (LED) therapy and cryotherapy regarding muscle damage, inflammation, and performance. Male Wistar rats were allocated in four groups: control, passive recovery (PR), cryotherapy (Cryo), and LED therapy. The animals were submitted to 45 min of swimming(More)
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the effect of 940 nm wavelength light emitting diode (LED) phototherapy on nerve regeneration in rats. Forty male Wistar rats weighing approximately 300 g each were divided into four groups: control (C); control submitted to LED phototherapy (CLed); Sciatic Nerve Lesion without LED phototherapy (L); Sciatic(More)
The aim of this work is to analyze the effects of LED therapy at 940 nm or cold water immersion therapy (CWI) after an acute bout of exercise on markers of muscle damage and inflammation. Thirty-two male Wistar rats were allocated into four groups: animals kept at rest (control), exercised animals (E), exercised + CWI (CWI), and exercised + LED therapy(More)
The effects of LED therapy at 940 nm on periodontal healing, inflammatory cell infiltration, and root resorption were analyzed in an experimental model of orthodontic tooth movement in rats. Twenty-five male Wistar rats were allocated into four experimental groups: Control animals (Co, n = 5), Controls + LED therapy (CoLED, n = 6), animals submitted to(More)
This paper presents a seed finding method for region growing segmentation approach using color channel energy in image regions. Instead of using the RGB system separated for each pixel, the proposal uses the energy on each color channel to improve the range of the possible values, then creates a more specific seed to detail different regions. Region size(More)
INTRODUCTION Anterior cruciate ligament rupture is a common injury in sports practice. It can be associated to many other injuries; the most frequent ones include meniscal and chondral injuries. Those injuries may be acute as a result of trauma, or chronic as a result of instability occasioned by anterior cruciate ligament injuries(1). Menisci play an(More)
Photoluminescence and photoreflectance measurements have been used to determine excitonic transitions in the ternary AlxGa1−xAs alloy in the temperature range from 2 to 300 K. The effect of the thermal expansion contribution on the temperature dependence of excitonic transitions for different aluminum concentrations in the AlxGa1−xAs alloy is presented.(More)
PURPOSE To compare the severity of the coronary heart disease and the presence of coronary risk factors between angina and myocardial infarction (MI) patients. METHODS We studied 62 patients with MI and 129 with angina through coronary angiography to evaluate occlusion (lesion of 99% or 100%), extent (with a score of 0-5 derived by the number of vessels(More)
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) presents intense inflammatory infiltrate, crypt abscesses, ulceration and even loss of function. Despite the clinical relevance of IBD, its current therapy remains poorly effective. Infrared wavelength phototherapy shows therapeutic potential on inflammation. Our goal was to evaluate whether light-emitting diodes (LED) at(More)
The energy transitions of GaAsSbN/GaAs strained-layer single quantum wells (QWs), grown by molecular-beam epitaxy, are studied in detail, using photoluminescence (PL) and photoreflectance (PR) spectroscopies. The optical transitions energy observed in the PL and PR spectra of GaAsSbN/GaAs QWs show a strong decrease with a small increase in the N(More)
