Abstract

Ex-Vivo experiments in photochemical bonding of the dermis of rabbit dorsal skin with 1,8-naphtalimide dyes were reported. The effects of varying the externally applied pressure during the welding and of the addition of an albumin-collagen protein filler was studied. It was found that the use of type I collagen protein filler increased the shear strength of dermal surfaces photochemically bonded with MBM gold 012011012. Weld strengths attained in the ex vivo skin model were similar to those that were reported previously for meniscus and cartilage.
