Combining talaporfin sodium (TS)-mediated photodynamic therapy (PDT) and pulsed dye laser (PDL) allows use of lower energies for both treatments, improving safety, while still achieving long term shutdown of blood vessels. Use of lower energies can improve safety. Representative maps of blood flow that demonstrate long term blood vessel shutdown at day 7. In this specific example, PDT (60 J cm−2) was applied followed by PDL (6 J cm−2). This combination resulted in blood vessel shutdown that lasted for 7 days.
