Bottom Line: It would eliminate need for suture; shorten clampage and operation time, consequently reducing stress for both, the surgeon and the patient.The effectiveness of NVC should be verified firstly in vitro and in vivo tests; and by animal experiments.Implication of the new vascular connector (NVC) would be of interest to both patients and the surgeon due to the following main achievements: 1) enables the creation of vascular anastomosis fast and simple, 2) significant shortening of clampage time of blood vessels and operation time-this assumption would be followed by reduced risk of operative and post-operative complications and length of hospital stay or admission to Intensive care unit, 3) safe and reliable, 4) compatible with any blood vessel and standard vascular graft, 5) using the NVC we will reduce in minimum need for replaced blood volume, 6) reduces the cost of treatment.

ABSTRACT

Background: In recent years, several methods and new techniques have been studied and proposed for establishment of sutureless vascular anastomoses, streaming use of sutureless vascular surgery in the future.

Presentation of the hypothesis: The new vascular connector (NVC) is a hypothetical design of a vascular device, proposed for creation and maintenance of sutureless vascular anastomosis. Implication of NVC would introduce a new device and technique in establishment of sutureless vascular anastomosis in which surgical approach is minimized and so post-operation disorders. It would eliminate need for suture; shorten clampage and operation time, consequently reducing stress for both, the surgeon and the patient. It enables the creation of vascular anastomosis fast, simple, safe, reliable, with satisfactory patency and stability of anastomosis.

Testing the hypothesis: Efficacy of NVC needs to be evaluated in further studies, in order to be confirmed for clinical use. The effectiveness of NVC should be verified firstly in vitro and in vivo tests; and by animal experiments. The likelihood of its negative influence in thrombogenicity should be well evaluated.

Implications of the hypothesis: Implication of the new vascular connector (NVC) would be of interest to both patients and the surgeon due to the following main achievements: 1) enables the creation of vascular anastomosis fast and simple, 2) significant shortening of clampage time of blood vessels and operation time-this assumption would be followed by reduced risk of operative and post-operative complications and length of hospital stay or admission to Intensive care unit, 3) safe and reliable, 4) compatible with any blood vessel and standard vascular graft, 5) using the NVC we will reduce in minimum need for replaced blood volume, 6) reduces the cost of treatment. It is anticipated that the NVC would provide shorter operation time and least operative and post-operative complications in creation of sutureless vascular anastomosis.

Mentions: NVC was made out of polymerized plastic (Photopolymer LS 600) and produced using a three dimensional (3-D) printer (Figure 3A and 3B). It is designed to make possible creation of end-to-end vascular anastomosis of various conduits: protheto-prosthesis, arterial-prosthetic, artery-artery, artery-vein and vein-vein. Vascular connector can be printed (produced) as required, for each type of blood vessel requiring vascular reconstruction. We have constructed a mathematical model for all dimensions; and have printed vascular connectors of various sizes of 0.1 mm increments from 4-7.5 mm.Figure 3
