An introduction to the world of ultramicrosurgery

Abstract

The technique called "Ultramicrosurgery", " Supermicrosurgery" is defined as microsurgical anastomosis of vessels with a diameter less than 0.5 mm. This surgical method increases the chances for achieving finger tip replantation, a free perforator flap reconstruction that reduces the flap donor site morbidity, and lymphaticovenous shunting to treat the lymphoedema. In this report, we introduce the various ultramicrosurgery techniques and representative cases and its application.
