1. With recent advancements in vascular surgery, interest in arterial shunts has been renewed. 2. Using specially designed partial occlusion clamps and polyethylene cannulas joined by a polyethylene tube, we have been able to either insert or remove an extraluminal shunt in the distal portion of the abdominal aorta of the dog in less than 90 sec. 3. We partially occlude no more than 30 to 40 per cent of the vessel. (A reduction of 60 per cent is necessary to produce significant changes in pressures proximal and distal to the site of partial occlusion.) 4. There is no fibrin formation. 5. The inside diameter of the shunt closely approximates that of the vessel being shunted. 4. There has been no immediate gross or microscopic damage to the vessel from the shunt, tape ligature, or partial occlusion clamp.

    The rotation of the flap pedicle is usually discouraged in reconstructive surgery because it could affect the patency of both the pedicle artery and vein. Propeller flaps usually require pedicle rotations of 180°, raising the risk of venous and arterial occlusion. We present a technical trick...
