Essentially microsurgery information, tips, and techniques from Stanford University.

The SMaRT app is a free resource for anyone who performs microsurgery, or for microsurgeons in training.  The app is organized into a simple menu that includes Preparation, Practice Models, Suturing, Intra-Operative Technique, and Study Question headings.  Despite its simplistic appearance, the information is detailed, complex, and valuable.  For example, the Preparation heading includes information about instrumentation, how to set up and adjust the microscope (with associated diagrams), and explanation of sutures.   Many photos and videos are included as well, demonstrating important topics such as adjusting proper posture.  Overall, the app is very easy to navigate, a valuable resource, free, and comes from a reliable source.  I highly recommend this app as a quick reference before any microsurgical case.
