The comparison of effects between pulsed and CW lasers on wound healing
This study evaluated both CW and pulsed laser therapy in an elliptic wound model in rats. This study is one of the few published reports that evaluates both pulsed and CW therapy compared to a sham control. All laser parameters improved wound healing. Maximal benefit was achieved using CW laser therapy. Optimal dosing for wound healing was 5 J/cm2.
