Heterotopic renal transplantation in piglets using vascular closure stapler metallic clips or conventional suturing techniques: comparison of vessel growth and macroscopical study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Our aim was to perform a macroscopic and imaging (ultrasonographic and angiographic) evaluation of vascular closure stapler (VCS) metallic clips for renal transplantation in growing piglets to assess their role for transplantation surgery in young children. If these techniques are to be useful, it is necessary to prove that their use… (More)
