- •Endovascular shunting techniques have emerged as versatile approaches to manage ischaemia during vascular emergencies and procedures but remain poorly studied.
- •In this experimental study the flow rates in different practically useful endovascular shunt systems were investigated. Marked flow capacity differences were noted both between individual devices and different interconnected endoshunt systems.
- •Only optimised endoshunt circuits matched or outperformed the corresponding flow capacity of a commercially available conventional vascular shunt.
- •the observations for different devices and interconnected shunt system flow capacities may guide vascular surgeons to select more optimised endoshunting approaches, that ultimately may limit end organ damage in many clinical scenarios.
