Refinement of Rat Vascular Access Button Implantation in Minipigs

2022-09-27T11:17:24-05:00

The importance of refinement does not need to be discussed; however, it is equally important to share the advances made with the community. At times individual refinements might be small and of little impact but over time they add up and improve a procedure considerably. In this presentation, the advancements of surgical procedures performed in Göttingen Minipigs over the last few years are summed up and discussed. Implantation of Rat Vascular Access Buttons: This procedure was introduced with a poster at the 2018 ASR meeting. In the meantime, I have standardized the procedure with catheters in the jugular vein have implanted [...]

Establishing and Maintaining Partnerships with Surgical Model Suppliers

2022-09-27T11:18:57-05:00

Introduction: The Global Surgery and Anesthesia Team (GS) is a group within Pfizer’s Comparative Medicine's (CM) Groton, CT organization. We provide expertise in laboratory animal surgical models and anesthesia support to research partners. Our mission is to provide investigative partners with the best possible model to meet study needs. This allows us to guide investigative staff to the best outcome to meet their study requirements, whether this involves in-house development and production, or vetting suppliers that can provide surgical models to complete study work. We represent both the interests of CM and of the customer (investigative group) by presenting the need, [...]

Refinement of Minipig Surgical Procedures

2022-09-27T10:16:22-05:00

The importance of refinement does not need to be discussed; however, it is equally important to share the advances made with the community. At times individual refinements might be small and of little impact but over time they add up and improve a procedure considerably. In this presentation the advancements of surgical procedures performed in Göttingen Minipigs over the last few years are summed up and discussed. The following procedures are addressed: LVP Telemetry by left sided Thoracotomy: This procedure has ben refined in a way that with larger Minipigs only one incision is necessary. With other adjustments we brought down [...]
