We recently showed the fortifying effect of poly-caprolactone (PCL) scaffold in liquid solder-mediated laser-assisted vascular repair (ssLAVR) of porcine carotid arteries, yielding a mean ± SD leaking point pressure of 488 ± 111 mmHg. Despite supraphysiological pressures, the frequency of adhesive failures was indicative of weak bonding at the solder-tissue interface. As a result, this study aimed to improve adhesive bonding by using a semi-solid solder and single-spot vs. scanning irradiation. In the first experiment, in vitro ssLAVR (n=30) was performed on porcine abdominal aorta strips using a PCL scaffold with a liquid or semi-solid solder and a 670-nm diode laser for dual-pass scanning. In the second experiment, the scanning method was compared to single-spot lasing. The third experiment investigated the stability of the welds following hydration under quasi-physiological conditions. The welding strength was defined by acute breaking strength (BS). Solder-tissue bonding was examined by scanning electron microscopy and histological analysis was performed for thermal damage analysis. Altering solder viscosity from liquid to semi-solid solder increased the BS from 78 ± 22 N/cm(2) to 131 ± 38 N/cm(2) . Compared to scanning ssLAVR, single-spot lasing improved adhesive bonding to a BS of 257 ± 62 N/cm(2) and showed fewer structural defects at the solder-tissue interface but more pronounced thermal damage. The improvement in adhesive bonding was associated with constantly stronger welds during two weeks of hydration. Semi-solid solder and single-spot lasing increased welding strength by reducing solder leakage and improving adhesive bonding, respectively. The improvement in adhesive bonding was associated with enhanced weld stability during hydration.
