The end of surgical stitches?

6 posts in this topic

Scientists have successfully tested a gold-based solder that can be welded onto surgical wounds using lasers.

The solder contains gold particles can form an elastic seal that moves with the body.

Scientists from the American Chemical Society have been testing the gold-based sealing material on pig intestines and believe it could replace traditional stitches and suture techniques.

Wonder if it will cut down on scaring. Some people end up with so much scare tissue they end up having surgery again.

Cool discovery. Almost as good as the nurse who uses pure granulated sugar to heal pressure sores and surgical infections.
