Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Two cases of extracorporeal repair of severe lesions involving the distal branches of the renal artery are extensively described and discussed. Microsurgical allowed the perfect patency of all the anastomoses performed. Work bench surgery provided the best conditions for the use of the operating microscope. Renal artery reconstruction was accomplished by autogenous vascular grafts, either arterial or venous. The rational for the use of an arterial or venous graft is briefly discussed.
