Functional and Physical Outcomes following Use of a Flexible CO2 Laser Fiber and Bipolar Electrocautery in Close Proximity to the Rat Sciatic Nerve with Correlation to an In Vitro Thermal Profile Model

Figure 7

Sciatic nerve images following use of the laser ((a), (b), and (c)) and the MALIS ((d), (e), and (f)) to ablate tissue. The laser created a carbonized track (dark edges) traversing the sciatic nerve. Only small carbonization marks were visible after the use of the MALIS.
