Factors contributing to aneurysm formation in rat microvascular anastomoses


Journal Article

Although aneurysms form in 50% of rat microarterial anastomoses, no studies have been undertaken to determine the precise mechanism of aneurysm formation. This study examined the etiology of aneurysm formation in microarterial anastomoses by defining the contribution from adventitial stripping, suture, and transection.
