Bioactive glasses are promising materials for bone scaffolds due to their ability to assist in tissue regeneration. When implanted in vivo, bioactive glasses can convert to hydroxyapatite, the main mineral constituent of human bone and form a strong bond with the surrounding tissues thus providing an advantage over polymer scaffold materials.

The erbium:yttrium-aluminium-garnet (Er:YAG) laser has recently been used in the fractional resurfacing of photo-aged skin. Our study evaluated the results after one single session of fractional resurfacing with Er:YAG. Thirty women participated in the study, with an average age of 46 years, skin types from II to IV, and wrinkle grades I to III. The 2,940(More)
BACKGROUND The efficacy of the 800-nm diode laser system in clearing leg veins was analyzed subjectively and objectively in a variety of leg veins. METHODS A total of 10 women (age 25-55 years, skin types II-IV) with a variety of leg vein types were treated with an 800-nm diode laser. A sequence of pulses (5-8 stacked pulses, pulse duration 50(More)
