The patency rates of microsurgical end-to-end and end-to-side anastomosis in the rat carotid artery were studied. Seventy end-to-end and seventy end-to-side arterial anastomoses, using 10-0 nylon interrupted sutures, were performed on 140 Sprague-Dawley rats. Findings indicated 100% patency in end-to-end as well as end-to-side immediately and 1 week post… CONTINUE READING
