The needle should pass through the tissue at a perpendiculaPlace the tips of the left-hand forceps on the underside of the tissue at the point where the needle will enter, and gently push the edge upward. With the right hand, bring the needle into contact with the tissue, and press downward. These movements create eversion. Pass the needle through. Do not grab the tissue with your left hand forceps since it will damage the intima. If needed, you can pick up adventitia or a nearby suture to help with exposure and eversion.
r.The needle must pass through the other side at a perpendicular, too. Bring the tip of the needle to the place where you intend to bring it out on the other side. Put the tip of your left-hand forceps on the upper surface of the tissue at the intended exit point. Press down with the left-hand forceps and push up with the needle to give you the correct eversion. The width of the bite should be about three times the thickness of the needle. The bites on both sides must be equal, and the needle should cross exactly in a straight line (not diagonally). Pull the needle through the tissue following the curve of the needle
