Refinement of Minipig Surgical Procedures

Symposia - In-person/live

Speaker: Adrian Zeltner

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 […]

Introduction: Industry has seen a shift in the use of genetically modified mice for the evaluation of cardiac performance and function. There is significant interest in developing novel therapies to treat heart failure and measuring the effectiveness of compounds. Many models exist in larger species however, there are limited translational models for mice. To evaluate compounds in mice, often large animal models are scaled down to be utilized in studies. In this presentation we will discuss the development of a murine model of left ventricular pressure cannulation (LVP). Currently, echocardiography is routinely used to assess disease progression in rodent models of […]
