This device is based on and modeled after Crile's idea of arteriovenous anastomosis in cases of direct blood transfusion. Crile's technic is not changed, but our devise has the following features which would seem to commend themselves along mechanical lines.
1. Being made on a larger scale and with a longer and larger handle, the instrument is more easily manipulated.
2. The cuff, being split and opening on a smooth hinge, can be put around the artery and then closed, thus doing away with the tedious feature of threading or pulling the artery through the cuff.
