  • TEMPORAL ARTERIAL LIGATION IN HEAD AND NECK SURGERY WITH ABSORBABLE SUTURES LARYNGOSCOPE Fee, W. E., Okamoto, E., Spellman, M., Ward, P. H. 1978; 88 (4): 619-631

    Abstract:

    Temporary arterial ligation is a useful concept in head and neck surgery for situations dealing with potential recurrent hemorrhage or recurrent vascular neoplasms. In this study, several absorbable sutures, including plain gut, chromic gut, and polyglycolic acid were used to ligate the common carotid artery in dogs. Arterial patency was followed by serial selective arteriograms. Only polyglycolic acid sutures proved to be a reliable material to achieve transient arterial occlusion.
