Abstract

The need for microvascular anastomosis is on the increase for the prevention or treatment of hemodynamic stroke or planned major vessel occlusion for the treatment of complex intracranial vascular lesions or tumors. The surgical skill of the microsurgeon is the most important factor for successful microvascular anastomosis. Thus, surgical experience in the laboratory is essential. With a review of the literature, we demonstrate characteristics of several training materials for the laboratory and preclinical assessments of surgical skills.
