The skills necessary to connect ultrasmall vessels and neural structures successfully require commitment and practice to refine. The techniques require only a few specialized instruments and a high-quality microscope. Several exercises can simulate real-life anatomical situations using a rubber sheet, chicken vessels, or the rat femoral artery model. A series of graduated drills can help develop proficiency and confidence.
