Abstract

Introduction Bypass surgery is a challenging operative procedure that requires surgical excellence. Achieving the skills required for vascular surgery is difficult to master in the operating room without intensive microsurgical training. Various models have been developed to provide training to young neurosurgeons and increase dexterity and patient safety. Bypass surgery requires complex microsurgical techniques.

Methods Microanastomosis training was performed on plastic tubes and chicken wings for 2 months. Each microanastomosis was evaluated by a senior author.

Results An improvement in the quality and patency of microanastomosis was observed.

Conclusion Microsurgical simulation training can contribute to the improvement of surgical skills and dexterity.
