The aim of this report is to highlight the benefits of the MLS® laser system in the management of necrotizing fasciitis (NF).
A 6-year old, cross-bred bitch, presenting necrotizing fasciitis in the perineal region and hindquarters, is admitted with septic shock and remains in intensive care for three days. The necrotic tissue is cleaned out, wet dressings are applied together with the use of a MPHI Multiwave Locked System (MLS®) laser. After necrotic tissue has been completely removed, skin resurfacing and regrowth of hair were achieved in 45 days, and the resulting scars are small and supple.
The results establish that the application of MLS® therapy in the treatment of necrotizing fasciitis helps to reduce drug therapies and recovery times.
