This article discussed a new technique using resorbable protein solder which consists of a high concentration solution of bovine serum albumin mixed with indocyanine green dye. The protein solder is activated by diode laser light and it provides a reliable safe rapid arterial repair. The protein solder helps to strengthen the join by adding material to the tissue junction and protects underlying tissue from damage to excess laser-induced heat deposited in the tissue.
