Wet Lab #2: Introduction to Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques in Swine – Afternoon Session

2022-09-27T10:17:16-05:00

This amazing facility provides us with the opportunity to instruct on minimally invasive surgical techniques in the swine model. Students will get the opportunity to perform endoscopic, laparoscopic, and fluoroscopy-guided endovascular procedures. It is not very often that we have had the opportunity to provide instruction using fluoroscopy and we are very excited about this lab! Anesthesia, proper handling of the equipment and instruments needed to perform these procedures will be mentored, along with specific techniques and tips for each. This wet lab would not be possible without the generous donation from Premier BioSource. To learn more about their new barrier [...]

Liver Regeneration Model in Cynomolgus Monkeys

2022-09-23T14:56:53-05:00

Introduction: About 41,260 new cases (28,600 in men and 12,660 in women) over liver cancer will be diagnosed in 2022 according to the American Cancer Society website. A model resecting approximately 60% of the liver by weight in cynomolgus monkeys is valuable in evaluating potential therapies that encourage natural regrowth of the liver post resection in human patients. Methods: Spanning three separate studies, a laparotomy was performed on a total of 26 animals, resecting approximately 60% of the total liver volume (by weight) of each animal’s liver. Liver volume was calculated based on historical organ (liver) weights measured at necropsy, determined [...]

How to Prepare for A Model I Have Never Performed Before?

2022-09-23T14:55:21-05:00

I am frequently asked to develop and validate novel models. Sometimes, I am just asked to perform a specific model I have never done before. Both situations are stressful; the first because it has never been done before, the latter because it seems so easy in the provided paper… But we know that the most important details are NOT in the paper!!! When realizing a model, we have to make sure that all the animals are operated by the same person, in the same manner, in the same time: reproducibility and repeatability are the 2 most important attributes. So, we have to be well prepared; the learning curve has to be behind us…
