Vascular Averting Instrument

Reference#: P00193


The invention concerns a means having two instruments for averting an end of a severed artery over a ferrule surrounding the artery. A handle of a flaring instrument is squeezed to rotate a head section. Arms mounted to the head section open in the manner of an iris-diaphragm mechanism to flare the arterial end. Another instrument, curved forceps, urges the artery via the ferrule into the head section such that the arterial end is averted over the ferrule. Two averted arterial ends may be joined by sutureless vascular anastomosis.
