Experiments using animal models are the most common way to learn microsurgery. This expertise is necessary for liver research, microsurgical reconstruction of the esophagus by free jejunum or reconstruction of the hepatic artery during reimplantation from living donors. The goal of this prospective study is to assess the reliability of an invertebrate model for microsurgical training.
