Cold perfusion was stopped and after the venous anastomosis was tested, the arterial anastomosis was performed in a similar fashion.
The arterial anastomosis involves creating a donor iliac Y-graft to the donor splenic and superior mesenteric arteries which are the anastomosed in an end-to-side fashion to the recipient right common iliac artery or external iliac artery (Figure 18).
The arterial anastomosis is slightly more difficult as only the left hepatic artery is available; this is usually anastomosed to the recipient common hepatic artery.
Finally, great care must be taken not to create too large an arterial anastomosis, as this could result in a high-output fistula and heart failure.
Heparin (2000 IU) was then injected and the arterial anastomosis was done with the same suture (Fig.
Listen for several pulsations to the bruit at the arteriovenous or arterial anastomosis
a diversified medical device manufacturer, announced today the publication of an article showing that using the Microvascular Anastomotic Coupler System (the Coupler), the company's mechanical device for connecting blood vessels without sutures, produces a reliable, strong arterial anastomosis in less time than a sutured connection in breast reconstruction procedures.
Arterial anastomosis was done with a patch, in all except one, with main arterial lumen size being 4.
Lumen diameter was measured by angiography and AVG patients treated with Vascugel([R]) had improved lumen diameter at both the venous and arterial anastomosis compared to placebo.
The hepatic arterial anastomosis is typically an end-to-end fish-mouth anastomosis where the donor common hepatic artery and splenic artery branch point or the origin of the celiac artery with an aortic Carrel patch (small portion of the adjacent aorta surrounding the celiac artery origin) is connected to the recipient right and left hepatic artery bifurcation or the proper hepaticgastroduodenal artery bifurcation.
One angiographic view is presented for the demonstration of our technique and an illustration of LITA-composite SVG-coronary arterial anastomosis is added (Fig.
