Product description

Suturing Principles and Techniques in Laboratory Animal Surgery: Manual and DVD introduces the basic principles of, and the materials and instruments required for, suturing and wound closure on animals in a research or veterinary facility. The manual provides descriptions and pictures portraying proper tissue handling and aseptic technique during wound closure, the correct hand placement and use of instruments, and the needle placement on the needle holder. The manual also provides in-depth coverage of various suture patterns and associated principles for proper knot tying, including step-by-step descriptions and handouts for each suture pattern. The DVD provides descriptive narrative and step-by-step video demonstrations for each of the suturing techniques while portraying proper tissue handling and aseptic technique. Each suture pattern description includes the common name, principal use, and detailed instructions on how to complete the pattern. An audible narration accompanies the video clip for each suture pattern on the instructional DVD, with a written copy of the narration provided in the book along with each pattern description. The suture pattern handout includes the common name, principal use, brief pattern description, and sequential instructions for each pattern, accompanied by high-quality pictures. This manual and the accompanying DVD help answer suture-related questions and aid readers in making educated decisions about basic wound closure.
