Abstract

Tissue fusion by laser energy is an intriguing and very promising new application for laser technology. In comparison to using high laser energy to ablate tissue as in the angioplasty application, laser tissue fusion is possible in any soft tissue by delivering appropriate low levels of energy to the opposed tissue surfaces. This technology is particularly appealing for vascular applications in making sutureless blood vessel anastomosis and for securing the endpoints of endarterectomies and dissection planes. Although there have been limited evaluations of this technology the preliminary experimental and clinical data is very promising for continued development and application.
