The total number of ureters used for ureteroeneteric anastamoses
was 1217: 545 in the Bricker arm and 672 in the Wallace arm.
A recent review of surgical management concluded that direct bypass surgery (STA-MCA anastamoses
) or indirect bypass surgery (laying a vascularized soft-tissue flap on the brain surface) improves revascularization.

HPB agents have been used in CE assessment of the biliary tree, including visualization of post cholecystectomy biliary leaks, (20) documenting patency of biliary-enteric anastamoses
, (21) and determining the proximity of lesions to the intrahepatic biliary ducts.
These data allow for the evaluation of potential surgical access points, locations for nerve anastamoses
or stimulating nerve cuff electrodes, and initial evaluation of the feasibility of accessing distal branches at the level of the compound femoral nerve.
