Paper Abstract

In every surgical endeavor, the process of tissue repair should ideally result in the reapproximation of di''ided structures ith the restoration of anatomical tissue plane ind minimal scarring. Over the past to centuries, fine needle nd suture techniques have been used to accompliBh this; they have, however, fallen quite short of ideal repair. Ihe use of even fine suture for the reapproxirnation of arteries results in chronic inflammatory response that eventually lead to a neointimal hyperplasia, atherosclerosis, stenosis, and occIuion These problems the needle and suture led us to explore the use of thermal lasers for tissue repair.
