We previously described a para-anastomotic hypercompliant zone (PHZ), located 3 to 4 mm from end-to-end continuous anastomoses in canine femoral arteries, in which arterial compliance first increases approximately 50% above adjacent reference values before falling to a minimum at the anastomosis. To determine if PHZ is affected by suture technique, 16 interrupted and 21 continuous end-to-end anastomoses were studied. Pulsed ultrasound was used to obtain detailed longitudinal profiles of… CONTINUE READING
