Abstract
In this study, tissue welding with 980-nm laser system, which is first-time in the literature, was performed. Hence, a preliminary study was done to determine optimal parameters for further studies. 1 cm long incisions done on the Wistar rat's dorsal skin were welded. Tissue welding with 980-nm wavelength depends on the degree of photothermal interaction. Thus, different power levels and exposure schedule were investigated. Dorsal sides of all animals were photographed from the date of surgery until they were sacrificed. The clinical examination - opening of wound and presence of infection - was noted. The rats did not show any abnormality on their health, behavior and nutrition manner. As a result, 980-nm diode laser was concluded to be a good candidate for tissue welding applications.
