Abstract

A study was conducted to evaluate laser soldering using liquid albumin-ICG solder for welding liver lacerations and sealing raw surfaces created by segmental resection of a lobe. For this purpose, 14 laceration injuries and 13 non-anatomical resection injuries were repaired through laser welding. For both laceration and resection injuries, 16 soldering repairs were evaluated at three hours, two at two weeks and nine at four weeks. A single suture repair of each type was evaluated at three hours. The results confirm that laser welding repair of the liver is a quick and reliable technique for repairing major hepatic trauman.
