Anatomical Evaluation for Successful Dye Laser Treatment of Port Wine Stain in Vietnamese Patients
Keywords:Port wine stain, Capillary malformation, Nevus flammeus, Vbeam perfecta, Pulsed dye laser
AIM: To assess the efficacy in the treatment of port wine stain in the head and neck by using (Vbeam perfectaÂ®).
METHODS: Forty-two port wine stain patients were recruited at the National Hospital of Dermatology and Venereology, Hanoi, Vietnam.
RESULTS: We reported an excellent response (43.8%) (76%-100% lightening), a good response (18.8%) (51%-75% lightening), fair improvement (18.8%) (26%-50% lightening), and no response (18.8%) (0%-25% lightening).
CONCLUSION: In conclusion, pulsed dye laser is an excellent technique to remove port wine stains on the face and neck.
