Paper Abstract

Laser soldering of tissues is based on the application of a biological solder on the approximated edges of a cut. Our goal was to use laser soldering for sealing cuts in skin under temperature feedback control and compare the results with ones obtained using standard sutures. Albumin solder was applied onto the approximated edges of cuts created in rabbit skin. A fiberoptic system was used to deliver the radiation of a CO2 laser, to heat a spot near the cut edges, and to monitor and control the temperature. Laser soldering was carried out, spot by spot.
