Abstract

We used the Enclose®II anastomosis assist device (Novare Surgical Systems, Inc., CA, USA), which was originally developed as an ancillary device for proximal anastomosis in off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCAB), to assist anastomosis for the vascular grafts without clamping those conduits in two cases. In these cases, it was difficult to clump vascular graft partially, because vascular graft was short. So we used Enclose®II anastomosis assist device for these cases.
The advantage of this method is that the Enclose®II anastomosis assist device facilitates the anastomosis of arterial side branches to the artificial graft (1) by eliminating the use of partial clamp on the artificial conduits and (2) by providing a plane surface for easy handling for suture.
