Spritzing deep in the tissue can get seriously complicated. Since you're
lacking visual feedback, handling two pipettes is difficult and
collisions likely. While there are labs doing dual patch recordings in
vivo, there aren't many and even they tend to find it difficult ...

Just my 2 cents - sorry it's not more positive.

Cheers, Christian
