Multiplexed PDL/Nd:YAG is a laser modality that corresponds to a 595 nm pulsed dye laser fired milliseconds before a 1,064 nm Nd:YAG laser beam, and some authors have suggested that this multiplexed PDL/Nd:YAG modality is efficacious for treating recalcitrant rosacea (14).
Histologically, XP can be distinguished from the rest of xanthomas by its position in the upper part of the dermis allowing it as an ideal target for laser therapy.5 Different laser modalities were used in the treatment of xanthelasma including CO2 laser, Er:YAG laser, Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, pulsed dye laser, and diode laser.
However, Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy can cause certain complications, like cystoid macular edema, retinal detachment and elevation of intraocular pressure (IOP) after the procedure, which can be significant and can result in irreversible visual loss7.
Edmund Optics has introduced its Techspec Nd:YAG Laser Line [lambda]/20 UV fused silica right angle prisms.
Methods: In an institution, 65 eyes of 65 consecutive pseudophakic patients with posterior capsule opacification underwent Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy.
[3-5] Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy possibly combined with complications such as cystoid macular edema, transient rise in intraocular pressure (IOP), endophthalmitis, anterior hyaloid disruption, and lens pitting.
Complications such as macular hole, retinal detachment, epiretinal membrane formation, and persistent premacular cavity may develop after Nd:YAG laser treatment [3].
