Özet

For practice in microsurgery, animal models and microsurgical instruments are required. The use of some synthetic and non-animal materials such as human placenta and other tissues have also been suggested for practicing. The other material that is needed is microsuture. These materials are expensive and often not easily obtained. To meet this requirement, the authors present human hair as a microsuture material for microsurgical practice.
