Background: In bypass surgery, a single-handed needle holder is usually used with other handed fine forceps. Recently, a needle holder with the function of fine forceps has been developed. Methods: In this technical note, usefulness of newly developed needle holders in both hands is presented in bypass surgery. Results: With this method, surgeons can make stitches and ties by both hands without exchanging instruments. Conclusions: This method is effective and may result in faster anastomotic… Expand


Straight needle with fingertip support technique reduces exclusion time during bypass (in vitro, in vivo animal study): a technical note
This in vitro/in vivo animal study provides evidence of the reduction of the suturing time, and thus the exclusion time, by using the fingertip support technique with a straight needle in the bypass procedure. Expand
Mattress anastomosis in micro vascular reconstruction: technical note
A horizontal mattress suture technique for intracranial microvascular bypass surgery is proposed and although a long-term assessment of patency is needed, it is useful for the intrac Cranial bypass surgery. Expand
Rescue revision techniques for end-to-side anastomosis: Technical note
This work introduces the salvage techniques for anastomosis revision with or without recipient artery occlusion and shows that with this method, ischemic complication related to revision procedure minimizes isChemic complications. Expand

Emergency EC-IC bypass for symptomatic atherosclerotic ischemic stroke
Sixty-nine percent of patients showed improvement of neurological function after surgery, and 74.1 % of patients had favorable outcome, but unfavorable outcome was associated with insufficient collateral flow and new infarction after bypass surgery. Expand
