Microvascular anastomosis: an experimental model utilizing the rabbit ear.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
Using the rabbit ear as an experimental model, a composite flap based on an anastomosed central artery and vein can be created and its viability determined. This inexpensive model can be used to train plastic surgical residents in microsurgery and in further investigations of the microcirculation of flaps and their survival.
