Abstract

The ultrasonic evolution of tendinous repair envisages the recovery of ecogenicity: "reparative phase", followed by the realignment of the collagen fibres: "rehabilitative phase".The primary objective was to verify the safety and efficacy of Nd:YAG pulsed wave on teno- desmopathies of horses. Secondary to shorten "reparative phase" for to provide more time for "rehabilitative phase".The study has been divided into two investigations: experimental and clinical. In the experimental investigation, on 3 meat horses, the safety and tolerance of a power laser (35 W/cm2, 25 J/cm2) was investigated.The clinical investigation was performed on 79 sport horses through randomized double-blind.All subjects (Controls and Treated) received, on the subskin above the tendon lesion, the same local infiltration of immunostimulant.The results indicates that the High Intensity Laser Therapy (HILT) is safe and tolerated. It is able of reducing, in significative way, the "reparative phase", with a lower percentage of relapse (20% Treated and 40% Controls), but it is not able to reduce the time of the "rehabilitative phase".
