Features

  • Includes an abundance of experimental models to study the different systems of the rat in normal or pathological situations
  • Contains a complete description of the operating theatre needed to perform the surgery
  • Discusses pathophysiologic situations in which each surgery is useful
  • Documents experimental results obtained with each surgery
  • Supplies a CD-ROM with more than 250 illustrations, most in color, that demonstrate each surgery technique in step-by-step fashion

Summary

An All-Inclusive Guide to Surgical Techniques on Rats

The design of an adequate surgical model, like the choice of the animal model itself, is extremely important for obtaining reliable valuable data. Experimental Surgical Models in the Laboratory Rat summarizes a series of techniques that were applied in the Bone Biology Laboratories, School of Medicine, Rosario National University, Argentina.

Stopping just short of an exhaustive analysis of the techniques, this manual describes the basics of each surgical technique, the necessary materials, precautions to consider, the methodology to apply, and the possible results to be obtained in similar experiments.

CD-ROM: 250 Illustrations of Surgery Techniques with Step-by-Step Instruction

With succinct descriptions, color photographs, and easy-to-follow steps, the attached CD-ROM is a practical, full-color roadmap for performing various surgery techniques, such as catheterization, tracheostomy, intramuscular injection, subcutaneous injection, intraperitoneal injection, and oral intubation. This definitive work provides technical and practical data including volumes and concentrations of solutions, catheters used, equipment, and biological variables on the rat. Experimental Surgical Models in the Laboratory Rat is a complete reference for today’s biomedical sciences investigator.
