+ - Surgery with a paintbrush

Submitted by BiancaM
BiancaM writes: A group of chemists has shown the power of nanoparticles for closing and healing surgical wounds. Using no more than a paintbrush they are able to close surgical openings as well as classical techniques such as sutures. However in fragile deap tissues such as liver even more remarkable results were found- normally fatal damage to internal organs is repaired in seconds using a nanopartilce glue. The results show that closing after surgery can be faster and simpler using nanomaterials to glue wounds shut.

The Force is what holds everything together. It has its dark side, and it has its light side. It's sort of like cosmic duct tape.
