The chapter describes the effectiveness of low level laser therapy (LLLT) in the treatment and rehabilitation of patients with cerebrovascular diseases. Protocol requirements of low level laser therapy procedures in Russia and the analysis of the studies of Russian specialists is given. It is shown that the two main techniques that should be used are intravenous laser blood illumination (ILBI) and non-invasive laser blood illumination (NLBI) that can be successfully implemented by "LASMIK" devices. Our clinical experience and literature review allows for the conclusion that LLLT has currently no alternative, first of all, in the effectiveness of preventing the development of acute cerebrovascular accidents (CVAs).
