Before it was known that polyamide tends to dissolve in tissue, nylon sutures were used to fixate 2-loop-Medallion-lenses to the iris. As was to be expected cases turned up in which the suture had ruptured. This situation entails the danger of contact between the end of the broken suture and the endothelium. By coagulation of the suture with a laser beam the danger was eliminated.
