TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iranian researchers at Azad University have designed and built a device producing cold atmospheric plasma to be used for blood coagulation.
“Blood coagulation through atmospheric plasma leads to swift blood coagulation and causes no side effect on the tissue. The plasma creates sterile environment and lessens the possibility of infection,” Maryam Amini, one of the project directors said.
The device’s features and properties are compatible with conditions of the live tissue. It leads to swift coagulation without damaging the tissue.
The first phase of the project has been conducted in laboratory phase and the second one was accomplished in animal phase after success of the first phase.
The imaging and pathobiologic of skin and liver suggested that there has been no damage on any tissue. The incisions recovered soon.
The success is a step towards grafting plasma physics onto medical sciences, especially surgery.
