First patients treated with intralesional i-PDT photodynamic therapy in the Balearics
The Son Espases Hospital in Palma de Majorca (Spain) is already successfully applying intralesional photodynamic therapy (i-PDT) in patients with hidradenitis suppurativa. In an interview published in the Spanish daily Última Hora, the first patient treated with this new therapy in the Balearic public health service is very satisfied with the results. “The first PDT session was made on December 19th and since then I feel much better,” she says.
The Son Espases Hospital, together with the León Hospital where the technique was first developed, are pioneers in the implementation of intralesional laser photodynamic therapy in Spain. The I-PDT consists in the application of a photosensitizing substance to the ill tissue, which is then activated by the 630nm laser light of INTERmedic’s Multidiode ™ 630 PDT system.
