Abstract

A model has been developed for the transfer of energy and mass in tissues exposed to intense, finely resolved energy sources. From solutions to the model, calculations have been performed to determine the distribution of temperature and gas in the tissue, the tissue-surface recession, and the degree of biological damage. The results provide an improved under-standing of tissue physical and biological response characteristics, as well as an indication of preferred heating conditions for bloodless surgery.
