Paper Abstract

Microvascular anastomoses on femoral vessels of rats and rabbits were performed by diode laser tissue welding in association with indocyanine green as a photoenhancing chromophore. Satisfactory clinical results were obtained by reducing the number of supporting stays. In this concern, the feasibility of this technique without any stay was demonstrated on rat femoral arteries. A histological examination at 90 days indicated a complete restoring of vessel structures with a wide proliferation of smooth muscle cells and negligible scar tissue.
