Abstract

There are many vascular anomalies which are often a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. They are classified in vascular tumors (e.g. infantile hemangioma) or vascular malformations (e.g. port-wine-stain). Moreover there are several other and rare vascular disregulations and diseases in the field of dermatology. Many laser systems focus on the therapy of vascular pathologies. We use a pulsed dye laser (595 nm) on its own or in combination with a Neodym:YAG-laser (1064 nm) to treat those vascular diseases. This paper points out the advantages and side effects of these two laser systems and describes the limitations of those.
