Paper Abstract

An experimental work on diode laser assisted end-to-end microvascular anastomoses on femoral arteries and veins of rats is presented. Effective welding of vessel tissues was obtained at low laser power by enhancing laser absorption with Indocyanine green (Cardio-green) solution. Clinical and histological effects of this laser technique were examined and compared with those obtained from the conventional microvascular sutured anastomosis technique.
