Abstract

Background and Objective: Thermal denaturation of proteins is recognized as a rate process governed by the local temperature-time response. Since rate processes are exponential with temperature, laser-assisted tissue welding was performed with and without temperature feedback control (TFC) to investigate the efficacy of temperature feedback in enhancing the photothermal welding process in vivo.
