There is a widespread consensus that training in microvascular surgery has to start with non-living models. Harvested latex sheets and arteries are an example of excellent models for teaching basic microvascular techniques. Vascular microanastomoses could be performed by suture and non-suture methods. Microvascular suture techniques could be made interrupted or continuous. Alternatively, end-to-side microanastomoses could be performed by intussusception using only one or two stitches. Non-suture microvascular techniques include cuff-ligature, rings, clips, stents, adhesives and thermal or laser welding.
