Current wound closure technology is limited, and lacks key elements \u2014 such as the formation of an immediate seal \u2014 that could otherwise resolve some of the common and life threatening complications associated with certain surgeries. Previous research has produced nanosealants capable of providing that immediate seal through the use of laser activation with a near infrared laser. Here, we have developed a biocompatible suture utilizes the same mechanics to provide the tensile strength needed to replace or supplement existing suture lines.
