Feasibility of the new sutureless excimer laser-assisted non-occlusive anastomosis clip in a rabbit model


de Boer, B; van Doormaal, T P C; Stecher, D; Redegeld, S; Tulleken, C A F; Regli, L; van der Zwan, A (2020). Feasibility of the new sutureless excimer laser-assisted non-occlusive anastomosis clip in a rabbit model. Acta Neurochirurgica, 162(1):175-179.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: The excimer laser-assisted non-occlusive anastomosis (ELANA) technique facilitates the construction of anastomoses without temporary occlusion of the recipient artery. Experiments aimed at simplifying the technique eventually resulted in a sutureless ELANA slide (SEsl) anastomosis. After the first clinical use, new insights lead to the application of a clip at the back of the device, the SELANA clip (SEcl). The SEcl offers a distinct advantage over the SEsl since no sealant is necessary. In this study, we determine the feasibility of the SEcl anastomosis in an in vivo rabbit model.
