General considerations for mouse survival surgery.
Curr Protocol Mouse Biology 2012; 2:263-271
Personnel performing surgery on mice commonly lack formal medical training and most training in mouse surgery focuses on the mechanical skills required for a procedure with less emphasis on perioperative techniques. Consequently, a basic concept that underpins successful surgery, aseptic technique, may not be fully understood or incorporated into the training process. This unit provides a framework in which to plan and carry out surgical procedures in mice using appropriate aseptic technique.
