Feb. 28, 2011 - PRLog -- The Veterinary Bioscience Institute (VBI) is proud to announce that they will be giving a presentation on rodent laparoscopic techniques at the next New Jersey branch meeting of AALAS. This meeting will be held on March 18th, 2011.
Rodent laparoscopy provides a refinement of current methods used for monitoring intra-abdominal disease progression, development of neoplastic, ischemic and toxicological disease models in rodents. Laparoscopy, which is considered the gold standard for many human abdominal procedures, results in decreased pain and tissue trauma, quicker post surgical recovery, and preserves immune function when compared to the same procedures performed by laparotomy. Rodent laparoscopy improves animal welfare and decreases inter-animal variability.  During this session, rodent laparotomy and laparoscopic surgical methods will be compared, and the utilization of laparoscopy for the development of ischemic and cancer models and assessment of disease progression to improve data collection and animal welfare will be described. In addition, currently available rodent laparoscopic equipment and instrumentation will be presented.

The Veterinary Bioscience Institute is a global leader in the development and refinement of laparoscopic procedures in rodents and is the first organization to make rodent laparoscopy accessible to the greater biomedical community through workshops, publications and conferences.
