Blood-flow velocity as a factor in postoperative microvascular patency.

Abstract

The authors attempted to develop a reliable and reproducible new animal model in which the blood-flow velocity to a flap could be varied. This model was utilized to study the effects of different blood-flow velocities on the patency rate of small 1- to 2-mm vessels after common microsurgical procedures. Male Sprague-Dawley rats, weighing 450 to 550 gm, were… (More)
