Experience with a "continuous" laser in the treatment of suitable cutaneous conditions: preliminary report.

Abstract

A clinical trial with a "continuous" CO2 laser in the treatment of cutaneous lesions was instituted 2 1/2 years ago. The laser was used as a "light" knife for excision and for gross destruction of some lesions directly. Details of technique and a preliminary report assessing clinical results and general effects are given. Some results thus far have proved satisfactory, and we feel that further investigation of the laser as a surgical modality is warranted.
