Submission + - Surgery with a paintbrush

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.
