The program utilizes the most state-of-the-art instrumentation. We recently have acquired two specialized two-headed Leica microscopes that have the ability for still and video digital image capture. Two complete microvascular instrumentation sets, as well as two Cook-Swartz implantable doppler monitors facilitate real time vessel flow monitoring, which can be used by nurses and surgeons.
Equipment is kept with the patient postoperatively in the ICU, step-down units and floors, as needed. Within the research arena, the Microvascular Division has recently collaborated with colleagues in other specialties for the newly created microvascular training lab and research facility.
