Microvascular anastomosis with absorbable and nonabsorbable sutures--a comparative study in rats.

Abstract

Polyglycolic acid, polypropylene, and nylon sutures were used to anastomose the aortas of 40 rats. Comparative studies of the healing process at the suture sites were performed. The long-term observations, by means of light and scanning electron microscopy, revealed that the regeneration of endothelium was more rapid and the endothelium had a smoother… (More)
