BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE One of the most frequent treatments for ischemic heart disease is myocardial revascularization, often applying the saphenous vein as a coronary graft. However, postoperative complications may occur, such as saphenous dehiscence. According to the literature, low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been used in the treatment of several(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The use of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) in neurosurgery is still hardly disseminated and there are situations in which the effects of this therapeutic tool would be extremely relevant in this medical field. The aim of the present study is to analyze the effect of LLLT on tissue repair after the corrective surgical incision in neonates with(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the tissue repair behavior after corrective surgical incision in neonates submitted to low-level laser therapy, in an attempt to diminish the incidence of postoperative dehiscence following the surgery for myelomeningocele performed immediately after birth. METHODS It is a prospective pilot study with 13 myelomeningocele patients(More)
Background Rheumatic fever remains a significant worldwide cause of mitral regurgitation, responsible for approximately 90% of early childhood valvular surgery in Brazil. Elongated/flail chordate are frequently responsible for such condition that must be surgically corrected. Despite recent surgical progress in mitral valve reconstruction techniques, there(More)
Dehiscence is a feared complication after major surgeries. Patient who had undergone coronary artery bypass grafting developed saphenectomy's dehiscence on lower limb with edema and pain on the 15th postoperative day. Conventional treatment had been initially performed without clinical improvement. On the 30th postoperative day only Low Level Laser Therapy(More)
Worldwide, rheumatic fever remains a significant cause of mitral valve insufficiency. It is responsible for approximately 90 % of early childhood valvular surgeries in Brazil. Elongated or flail chordae are frequently responsible and require surgical correction. The purpose of this study was to analyze and compare the histological tissues of the mitral(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The most common injury to the heart valve with rheumatic involvement is mitral stenosis, which is the reason for a big number of cardiac operations in Brazil. Commissurotomy is the traditional technique that is still widely used for this condition, although late postoperative restenosis is concerning. This study's purpose was to(More)
Background In Brazil, the main cause of death is the coronary heart disease and the surgical treatment used is the Myocardial Revascularization (MR). Patients undergoing to MR through bypass saphenous vein have been developed dehiscence in 10%. Dehiscence of surgical incision through Bioestimulation treatment with Low Level Laser in patients that underwent(More)
