Pp. 32-48 (17)
Maria Angeles Aller and Jaime Arias
Microsurgery is characterized by the use of an operating microscope. It is associated with the use of fine microsurgical instruments. The microsurgical instruments correspond with the fundamental phases that make up a surgical operation, that is, incision, hemostasis, dissection and sutures. This chapter describes these surgical times, placing particular emphasis on microsurgical techniques. In microsurgery, the material used is equally important as how it is used with a correct technique.
