This year there were two review articles published which could be of interest to you if you perform rodent surgery or if you are involved in rodent surgical training, especially of mouse or rat:



Techniques in aseptic rodent surgery by Drs. Hoogstraten-Miller and Brown from National Human Genome Research Institute/National Institutes of Health (Curr Protoc Immunol. 2008 Aug;Chapter 1:Unit 1.12.1-1.12-14).




Abstract: Performing aseptic survival surgery in rodents can be challenging. This unit describes some basic principles to assist clinicians, researchers, and technicians in becoming proficient in performing aseptic rodent surgery.



Mouse and rat anesthesia and analgesia by Dr. Davis from NIAAA/National Institute of Health (Curr Protoc Neurosci. 2008 Jan;Appendix 4:Appendix 4B).




Abstract: Many animal models used in neuroscience research must be surgically created and/or anesthetized for imaging studies. The purpose of this unit is to review the advantages and disadvantages of various anesthetic and analgesic agents in rodents; to discuss state-of-the-art methods for monitoring anesthesia; and to provide tips for troubleshooting problems with anesthesia.
