Microsurgery gathers a set of microsurgical techniques such as vascular anastomosis, lymphatic microsuture and neurorrhaphies. Due to the advances of the anatomical knowledge and the technological development, microsurgery has become the basis of all tissue transfer techniques and the main axis of the advanced reconstruction.

During the last 10 years the exponential growth of microsurgical techniques particularly in the field of plastic surgery, clearly indicates that specific training is needed in this area and skilled microsurgical team is indispensable in all major hospitals.
