Anastomosis AS

We work to reduce or eliminate the need for manual suturing in vascular surgery.

Problem to be solved

During the last decades we have seen major advances in vascular surgery techniques, in particular the emergence of minimal invasive surgery and robot assisted surgeries. Despite these improvements, the manual technique of hand suturing connecting e.g. a graft to a blood vessel (called anastomosis) remains a cornerstone in a large proportion of vascular surgical procedures. Hand suturing depends on the individual surgeon’s skill set and can be difficult to carry out in laparoscopies or inaccessible areas, it takes time and may result in leakage or infections that in turn lead to the need for rehospitalization. Thus, there is a need for sutureless techniques and devices that reduce or eliminate the need for manual suturing in vascular surgery.

The solution
We are developing a kit for rapidly anastomosing a vascular graft without stitching (“sutureless
anastomosis”).
