    Abstract:

    Simplifying Rodent Surgery... Tips for improving technique without incurring unreasonable costs Good science is greatly dependent on minimization of study variables. Surgery has the potential of inducing significant pain and distress related variables. To minimize these, excellent surgical technique, care and outcomes have received more and more attention in biomedical research. With increasingly shrinking and limited budgets, creativity in the application of good and affordable technique have become vital to maintaining an affordable yet excellent surgical program while yielding adequate outcomes with minimal variables. The presenter offers tips from his own personal experience and that of others to help maintain a relatively economical surgical program with resulting excellent outcomes. Audience: This presentation is designed for participants who have minimal, moderate or advanced surgical experience, and personnel involved in surgical oversight and training, including but not limited to scientists, veterinary technicians, veterinarians, technical support staff and IACUC members. Simplificación de la Cirugía de Roedores… Consejos para mejorar la técnica y el proceso perioperatorio sin caer en costos excesivos La buena ciencia depende en gran medida de la minimización de las variables del experimento. La cirugía tiene el potencial de contribuir en forma significativa al dolor y las variables en los estudios. Para reducir al mínimo estos, la excelente técnica quirúrgica, cuidado y resultados han recibido más y más atención en la investigación biomédica. Con presupuestos cada vez más y más encogidos o limitados, la creatividad en la aplicación de técnica buena y asequible se han vuelto vital para el mantenimiento de un programa de cirugía económico y excelente que a la misma vez produzca resultados adecuados con variables mínimas. El presentador ofrece consejos derivados de su propia experiencia personal y la de otros para ayudar a mantener un programa de cirugía relativamente económico con consiguiente excelentes resultados. Audiencia: Esta presentación está diseñada para participantes con experiencia mínima, moderada o avanzada en cirugía de roedores, individuos encargados de la supervisión y entrenamiento quirúrgico, incluyendo pero no limitado a los científicos, técnicos veterinarios, veterinarios, individuos de apoyo técnico y los miembros del CICUAL.
