Abstract

This study aimed to evaluate the inflammatory response of the subcutaneous tissue of twenty rats when the use of iodoform with different drugs or not associated with laser photobiomodulation. In the dorsum of rats were introduced into tubes containing: Iodoform and calcium hydroxide (Ca (OH)2); Iodoform and Ca(OH)2, associated with Laser; Iodoform and Otosporin; Iodoform and Otosporin, associated with Laser. The animals were euthanized eight and fifteen days after surgery, the parts were removed and processed in the laboratory with staining with Hematoxylin-Eosin (HE) and Picrosirius Red. The statistical significances of the inflammatory infiltrate and quantification of collagen fibers were measured by ANOVA-Tukey test. The association between Ca (OH)2 and iodoform with determined the best response in the host tissues. The low level laser therapy was effective in modulating the inflammatory response and deposit collagen fibers.
