A review of the current state of our understanding of complete fusion reaction mechanisms is presented, from the perspective of an experimentalist. For complete fusion reactions, the overall uncertainties in predicting heavy element synthesis cross sections are examined in terms of the uncertainties associated with the calculations of capture cross sections, fusion probabilities and survival probabilities.
