Yet no universally accepted treatment protocol for oral hemangiomas and vascular malformations exists. This study determines the long-term clinical outcome after long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser treatment in 121 previously untreated patients (78 females, 43 males; mean age, 19 years) with oral hemangioma or vascular malformations. The end point was 100% vessel clearing after 1 to 3 sessions.The power of the laser was set at 6.5 W per pulse, the pulse widths ranged between 30 and 60 milliseconds. With… CONTINUE READING
