Paper Abstract

Laser has been used experimentally for bonding of tissues. The probable advantages of this method are being non-contact, no foreign materials are introduce and it is fast. Previous works have shown laser welding to be an effective way for connecting blood vessels', peripheral nerves2, bowl segments3 and many other biological tissues. In ophthalmology, previous attempts to weld corneal tissue using CO2 lasers have failed4'5.
