Methods of Animal Experimentation, Volume VII: Research Surgery and Care of the Research Animal, Part B is a collection of papers that deals with methods used in animal experiments concerning surgical approaches to certain organ systems. This collection deals with surgery involving the respiratory, cardiovascular, skeletal, gastrointestinal, genital, and central nervous systems of the test animals. One paper describes the procedures to be followed in thoracic incisions, emphasizing the importance of access to airways and parenchymal resections. In explaining cardiovascular surgery, one paper details the specialized surgical equipment, anesthesia, blood flow, and post-operative care that the test animal needs. Another paper describes the procedures and techniques, as well as limb immobilization or total joint prostheses that should be followed in a surgery involving the skeletal system. One author also considers in detail both research surgeries of the male and female reproductive tracts. The paper on surgery involving the peripheral and central nervous system gives general techniques used in chronic studies of such system. Veterinarians, laboratory workers dealing with test animals, and researchers designing animal and medical experiments will find this book very informative.
