    Have you had problems with the length of your anastomoses??

    Thank you for your question, but the answer to this is : no, neither.
    We don´t saw any problems after the anastomosis suture and in the intraoperative flow measurement with good results at the follow up.
    But the vein material is very elastic , so im totaly agree that you can give the vene more length if you would.
    Best regards Martin
