Microvascular sutures are the most essential parrt of microsurgery. The three basic types of anastomosis, i.e. end to end (ETE), end to side (ETS) and end in end (EIE), differ, beside the flow parameters, also in the succession, number and depth of the sutures as well as in the technique of suturing. In clinical microsurgery ETE and ETS anastomoses are applied. Several authors have attempted to telescope the vascular ends into each other to simplify the technique of anastomosis, to reduce the time of operation as well as to eliminate intraluminar suturing [1, 3, 6, 9].
