Paper Abstract

This article reviews the current state of the art in the field of vascular welding using the milliwatt CO2 to repair 4 to 9 mm vessels. Previous work in arterial anastomosis and intraluminal welding is evaluated. A preliminary study in the area of venous anastomosis is presented in detail. Following the presentation of the current available data, a discussion of the field will emphasize what we know and what still must be learned. The conclusions confirm the feasibility of laser-assisted vascular repair and highlight its method of coagulative welding with resultant short and long-term effect on living tissues.
