Effect of laser biostimulation on leg blood flow in the course of arteriosclerosis

Effect of laser biostimulation on leg blood flow in the course of arteriosclerosis

Polski Tygodnik Lekarski 49(16-17): 363-365

Blood flow pattern (maximum moment velocity, mean velocity, artery diameter and minute flow) in the superficial femoral artery and in the foot artery was evaluated in 30 patients, subjected to laser biostimulation for symptoms of atherosclerotic ischemia of the lower limbs. The blood flow examination was performed before the treatment and immediately afterwards (20 procedures) and 6 months following the therapy. It was found that laser biostimulation had a favorable effect on the blood flow pattern, particularly in the initial stage of ischemia (Io), and may be a useful method of medical treatment in atherosclerotic ischemia of the lower limbs.
