Various techniques have been employed in the past for repair of accidental injuries and planned incisions of small blood vessels. Of these, microsuture is the most widely used. This method is time-consuming, and vascular occlusions may be required for periods longer than considered safe in the case of such organs as the brain. Bipolar coagulation has been occasionally used to repair a tear in a small vessel during surgery with the aim of preserving the lumen of the vessel. There is, however, no detailed laboratory study of the effect of this procedure on a vessel less than 1 mm in diameter.
