CARRAL NOVO, Juan Mariano. Combined useful surgical maneuvers to optimize the vascular suture. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2011, vol.40, n.2, pp. 174-175. ISSN 0138-6557.
Three combined surgical maneuvers to create vascular approach for hemodialysis (n = 270) and renal transplantation (n = 54) from September, 2000 to December, 2008 including the use of a goniometer compass to optimize the facing of vessel to be sutured, practice of anchorage point for eversion of posterior wall in the vascular suture and replacement of clips for gum ligatures in vascular surgery. The systemic practice of these maneuvers allowed to increase the effectiveness of the vascular approaches in a 20 % and to decrease the vascular complications and the renal transplantation to the half of those previously reported for the good of the survival and the quality of life of the patients.
