1.6M Bypass Surgeries are performed each year in the US to treat inadequate blood flow, in dialysis access, vascular trauma and organ transplantations. Vascular anastomosis is a weak link in any bypass surgery. The success of the procedure hinges on how well the connection was made and how well the connection holds up.
The gold standard in all vascular anastamoses to this day remains hand suturing.
Hand suturing makes fashioning an anastomosis a complex and time-consuming step, completely dependent on the surgeon’s dexterity. Current techniques present critical surgical risks such as blockage, leakage or infections, and require long “bloodless time” (stopping blood flow while the procedure is performed).
