Abstract
Individual blood vessels in the chick chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) were selectively coagulated through photothermolysis, using pulsed laser irradiation at 585 nm. Pulse durations were chosen to be 0.45 ms and 10 ms, which correspond to the thermal relaxation times in blood vessels of 30 micrometers and 150 micrometers diameter, respectively. The dose vs diameter (D vs d) relationship for coagulation was calculated for the two pulse shapes. The energy deposited in a cylindrical absorber of diameter d by an optical field, incident perpendicular to the vessel, was expressed analytically and compared with the energy required to coagulate a blood vessel of the same lumen diameter. When thermal diffusion is incorporated into the model, our findings can be accounted for quantitatively. This information will be of use for improving the laser treatment of port wine stains and other vasculopathies.
