Experimental Surgical Models in the Laboratory Rat, Hardback Book

Experimental Surgical Models in the Laboratory Rat Hardback

Edited by Alfredo Rigalli, Veronica Di Loreto



An All-Inclusive Guide to Surgical Techniques on RatsThe 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 InstructionWith succinct descriptions, color photographs, and easy-to-follow steps, the downloadable resources are 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.
