Laser welding of ruptured intestinal tissue using plasmonic polypeptide nanocomposite solders.

Abstract

Approximately 1.5 million people suffer from colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease in the United States. Occurrence of leakage following standard surgical anastomosis in intestinal and colorectal surgery is common and can cause infection leading to life-threatening consequences. In this report, we demonstrate that plasmonic nanocomposites… (More)
