Abstract
We review our experimental studies on near infrared laser-activated gold nanoparticles in the direct welding of connective tissues. In particular, we discuss the use of gold nanorods excited by diode laser radiation at 810 nm to mediate functional photothermal effects and weld eye's lens capsules and arteries. The preparation of biopolymeric matrices including gold nanorods is described as well, together with preliminary tests for their application in the closure of wounds in vessels and tendons. Finally we mention future perspectives on the use of these nanoparticles for applications in the therapy of cancer.
