Transendoscopic Ultrasound for Neurosurgery

Endoscopic neurosurgery has no longer but reached the protection and applicability of microsurgery.

0 Prolene, when used as a stent is very handy during anastomosis. 0 Ethilon as an aid for anastomosis. 0 Ethilon sutures placed and anastomosis accomplished. (d) Aproximator removed We have rechecked the anastomoses 30 days after surgery. We found that it was impossible to dissect end-to-end anastomosis sites and check for patency. End-to-side anastomosis sites were easily dissected with the guidance of external jugular vein and patency could be observed. For early and late patency evaluation we present two approaches which may be of clinical interest also.

Moreover, decreasing the thrombosis incidence and anastomotic leakage were observed. Saitoh and Nakatsuchi used a fibrin glue to prevent overdistention of the vein graft [38]. Epigastric vein served as a graft to reconstitute the femoral artery defect. Once the procedure was completed using telescoping anastomotic technique (described above), fibrin glue was applied over the graft to prevent enlargement of the vein graft. Long lasting vessel patency (up to 3 months postoperatively) was observed and any side effects using fibrin glue was noted.
