Abstract

Anastomotic strength was evaluated in vivo in rats by the application of a uniaxial force to the anastomosis. The mechanical system designed for the study provided a linearly increasing force in the longtitudinal direction of the vessels. Conventional and laser anastomoses were tested in order to accomplish the following: determine whether anastomosis failure under the conditions described above results from loss of patency, or from leakage at the anastomotic site, or from rupture of the anastomotic site; ascertain the tensile load required for rupture of the anastomotic site; and provide a better understanding of the inherent elastic properties of the anastomotic site and the adjacent tissue regions.
