Abstract:
Swine have increasingly become utilized as biomedical research models in the last two decades. In recent years technical developments in surgery, anesthesia, husbandry and handling techniques of laboratory swine have occurred. This resource was developed to provide investigators, laboratory animal veterinarians, technicians, and others, using swine for biomedical purposes with access to baseline literature on common models and procedures. Information on the comparative anatomy and physiology of the porcine cardiovascular, digestive, dermal and urinary system as well all differences between farm and miniature breeds are presented. Comparisons and similarities between swine and human anatomy and physiology are also reviewed. An extensive bibliography covering anatomy, anesthesia, surgical procedures, body systems, common biomedical models, and husbandry of laboratory swine is included.
