Paper Abstract

We performed diode-laser assisted skin welding on Wistar rats by using a sodium hyaluronate gel mixed with Indocyanine Cadio-green (ICG) as photoenhancing chromophore. Laser treatment was accomplished with a 'side' irradiation technique, taking advantage of the fact that diode laser radiation at 810 nm is well transmitted by tissue on distances of some millimeters. Clinical and histological results were compared with those of conventionally sutured wounds.
