Abstract

Angiogenesis determines blood supply, and it is postulated that after surgery, the healing of a wound is directly related to the blood supplied to the surrounding tissues. As a first step in evaluating the process of flow through different surgical anastomoses, the flow rate of125I through three different types of anastomoses in the intestines of dogs was determined. When the results were compared, the flow rate through the stapler anastomosis was significantly higher than the flow rate through the standard and Gambee anastomoses.
