Laser-assisted repair of biological tissues

We proposed new methods of laser-assisted repair of biological tissues (patented) to replace conventional suturing, based on laser induced activation of the endogenous collagen, which behaves like a thermally activated glue. Our method received the approval of the Italian Health Ministry to perform both pre-clinical and clinical experimentations in Ophthalmology and pre-clinical experimentations in brain microsurgery.

A recent optimization consisted in the introduction of new light-responsive hybrid bioadhesives for tissue repair that can be precisely bonded to a biological tissue by photothermal activation. These are easily-handy and resorbable medical dressings that are embedded with laser-activatable organic chromophores or nanochromophores. Laser illumination of the chromophores triggers a strong adhesion between the bioadhesive and the tissue.
