An adolescent with an unstable knee A 19-year-old lady presents with a swollen and painful knee after a netball injury. What diagnoses should be considered and what is appropriate management? Case presentation History and examination A 19-year-old student presented to her GP with a right knee that was swollen and painful. She reported that she had been playing netball when the knee had given way while she was landing from a leap. Questioning revealed a previous damage had occurred while using 10 weeks earlier netball.‘At the same power and dosages, tissue treated with the 1440 nm laser disrupted a larger area of fat cells and demonstrated greater tissue tightening effects than the various other wavelengths,’ Dr. DiBernardo said. ‘The conclusion which can be drawn from this analysis is that, in terms of the efficiency of excess fat collagen and removal remodeling, laser and wavelength energy play an integral role in individual outcomes.’ Michael Davin, president and chief executive officer of Cynosure, said, ‘The study shown at ASLMS further validates the expense we’ve made to increase the efficiency and performance of our Smartlipo technology with the help of a 1440 nm wavelength.’ Highlights from other Smartlipo-related abstracts being offered at ASLMS this complete week, include: A 15-individual study conducted by John Millard, M.D.
