Paper Abstract

Over the last seven years, I and several co-investigators have studied the vascular welding potential of the milliwatt CO2 laser. It has become clear that there are definite limitations to this method of vascular repair which has hindered its advancement into the clinical arena. The thrust of this review is to highlight these limitations and thereby clarify what future direction might be considered.
