Three-branched pericardial sheet. Three holes, having a diameter of 10 mm, 10 mm, and 15 mm, respectively, were made. The holes were made 5 mm apart, and the last hole was made 20 mm from the edge of the sheet. Three rectangular sheets were cut from another pericardial sheet, and each of them was sutured to the circumference of a hole in the pericardial sheet and formed into a cylinder by continuous suturing with 5–0 polypropylene.
