The use of synthetic cuffs to simplify and hasten microvascular anastomoses is offered as an alternative to conventional methods. In this study, a soft, non-irritating, silicone rubber cuff was used to construct end-to-end and end-to-side cuff-sutured anastomoses in rats. This technique was as rapid as other non-sutured anastomoses, required no assistant, and provoked no foreign-body reactions.
