Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the morphological, histopathological, and electrophysiological changes of peripheral nerve after CO2 (carbon dioxide), Er:YAG (erbium:yttrium aluminum garnet), and CO2 + Er:YAG laser irradiation. There have been no comparative reports on CO2, Er:YAG, and CO2 + Er:YAG laser effects on peripheral nerve.
