Paper Abstract

In this work we report our experiences on diode laser-assisted end-to-end microvascular anastomosis performed on femoral arteries and veins of rats and rabbits at very low laser power (30 - 40 mW). In the course of our trials we approached laser anastomosis with a reduced number of permanent stays to decrease foreign body reaction. Recently we demonstrated the possibility to perform anastomosis without supporting stays. Significant improvements in comparison with traditional procedures were also furnished by histology examination, which showed a better healing process in LAMA cases.
