Paper Abstract

We present the preliminary results of an experimental study on diode laser-assisted end-to-end anastomosis of the vas deferens in rats. Laser irradiation was associated with a photoenhancing chromophore to produce welding of the stumps at low laser power supported by only 2 suture says. The reduction of suture material is aimed to minimize foreign body reaction during the healing process.
