Nerve transection repair using laser-activated chitosan in a rat model.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Cranial nerve transection during head and neck surgery is conventionally repaired with microsuture. Previous studies have demonstrated recovery with laser nerve welding (LNW), a novel alternative to microsuture. LNW has been reported to have poorer tensile strength, however. Laser-activated chitosan, an adhesive biopolymer, may promote… (More)
